Today, businesses use different workflow management systems and issue trackers to keep their tasks on track. If you utilize multiple platforms to manage your projects and expect to sync across the teams, integrating them can bring a lot of advantages together.

If you are working in Jira and every time you are switching to check the new issues raised in GitHub and trying to update those issues on Jira as a new Issue or tasks to be resolved, it takes a lot of time and reduces productivity. But, if you can integrate both GitHub and Jira and let the issues automatically update on their own without any human intervention or code, the workflow management will become easy.

The simple process is to integrate and automate your Jira and GitHub accounts using Quickwork iPaaS platform.
