Sync Jira to Monitask

How it works

We will transfer all created tasks and subtasks from Jira to Monitask, as if they are assigned to a user, they will be assigned to the corresponding user in Monitask.


  1. If you create a new task or subtask in a Jira, it will automatically be created in the Monitask in the web app and in the desktop application
  2. Tasks with the same names will not be created, however, if you create a task with the same name but with new assignees, the system will link new users to the existing task in the Monitask
  3. If If you delete a task or subtask in a Jira, the task from the Monitask will not be deleted, the system only adds new tasks
  4. If you add a new assignee in the Jira, the corresponding assignee will be added in the Monitask
  5. If you delete assignee in a Jira, assignee in Monitask will not be deleted, the system only adds new assignees
  6. Monitask syns all tasks from Jira to Monitask each 5 minutes

Browse Jira project and click Create issue

2) Specify task details

Set task name, Set assignee for that task (Assignee should be a one of users selected during integration configuration), Optionally specify task description

Then click Save:

3) Browse tasks page https://app.monitask.com/notes/list in Monitask and check that task is synchronized to selected Project

4) Now assigned to that task person should be able to see it in the desktop application:

On windows:

5) That person should be able to see task details using desktop application interface

On Windows and Linux:

Sync Monitask to Jira

How it works

When user starts time tracking in the Monitask desktop application, we sync time to Jira after first minute and then each 10 minutes. 

Also, time is synced each time user stops tracking (Clicks on the Pause button)


No changes to the tasks in the Monitask will be transferred to the Jira

1) To start time tracking select a Jira task in the desktop application (it should be highlighted with light blue) and click on the ‘Start tracking’ button

2) When you are done click on the ‘Stop tracking’ button and see time synchronized to Jira
