TrackIt Logo

What does the integration offer?

Track-It! sends notifications of new alerts. With this Integration, Jira Service Management acts as a dispatcher for these alerts and determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

How does the integration work?

  • When an alert is created in Jira Service Management, a workflow is created in Track-It!.

  • When users acknowledge, unacknowledge etc. an alert in Jira Service Management, this action is added as a note to the related workflow in Track-It!.

  • When users add a note to alerts in Jira Service Management, add note info is sent to Track-It!.

  • When the alert is closed in Jira Service Management, the related workflow is closed in Track-It!.

JEC subscribes to alert actions in Jira Service Management and reflects these actions on the Track-It! flow so that notifications are sent for Jira Service Management alerts.

Set up the integration

Track-It! is a bidirectional integration. Setting it up involves the following steps:

  • Add a Track-It! integration in Jira Service Management

  • Configure the integration in Track-It!

Add a Track-It! integration

If you're using the Free or Standard plan in Jira Service Management, you can only add this integration from your team’s operations page. To access the feature through Settings (gear icon) > Products (under JIRA SETTINGS) > OPERATIONS, you need to be on Premium or Enterprise plan.

Adding an integration from your team’s operations page makes your team the owner of the integration. This means Jira Service Management only assigns the alerts received through this integration to your team.

To add a Track-It! integration in Jira Service Management, complete the following steps:

  1. Go to your team’s operations page.

  2. On the left navigation panel, select Integrations and then Add integration.

  3. Run a search and select “Track-It!”.

  4. On the next screen, enter a name for the integration.

  5. Optional: Select a team in Assignee team if you want a specific team to receive alerts from the integration.

  6. Select Continue.
    The integration is saved at this point.

  7. Expand the Steps to configure the integration section and copy the API key.
    You will use this key while configuring the integration in Track-It! later.

  8. Select Turn on integration.
    The rules you create for the integration will work only if you turn on the integration.
