Learn how to use SpecFuse to capture ideas, develop software specifications, and manage your project as you bring your software to life.

Jira & SpecFuse

When you connect your SpecFuse project with a Jira project, you will be able to keep specs and issues in sync, allowing your team to work from either system.


With this integration, you could connect an existing Jira project and import all your issues to SpecFuse, automatically creating matching specs. From there, you have the full power of SpecFuse to plan, manage, and monitor your project. Once imported, specs will automatically publish changes back to out to Jira when they are updated.


Another way to use this integration would be to first create specs in SpecFuse, and then connect and publish to issues on a Jira project only when you are ready to start development.
