About Jira

Jira is project and issue tracking software. Teams can plan and distribute tasks, track performance, build product roadmaps, and much more. With scrum boards and agile reporting, Jira provides top-notch project management features for any software development company.

To facilitate document workflow, users can attach files to tasks. Attachments are usually screenshots, text documents, and spreadsheets.


ONLYOFFICE Docs features within Jira

With ONLYOFFICE Docs, you can view, edit, and collaborate on text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Files in Microsoft formats (DOCX, XLSX, PPTX) can be edited, other popular file extensions are available for viewing.

Full changelog and additional details to the integration are available on GitHub.

There are two major document access rights:

  • Editing for users with permission to create attachments.
