The integration with Jira Server lets you synchronize your projects between Jira and Forecast. Projects and tasks will stay up-to-date as data is added and/or updated in either Jira or Forecast.
Many software developers are fond of the Jira solution, while management often doesn't really feel the same. This integration allows for a combined workflow between both Jira and Forecast users.
Using Forecast with Jira, your people scheduling, project planning, estimates, time tracking, and high level portfolio overview will always be synchronized with current development tasks and issues. Easily estimate and plan new features in Forecast, and have them automatically be synced to Jira. Thus, critical information is shared and collaboration is effortless.
