While working with customers in IT industry, there is a need to integrate various systems. In our case, we faced a challenge of providing customers with the rapid Salesforce® integration with JIRA® using no additional development and support efforts for 3rd party components. Sales and Service teams may face a similar problem, in case they work on customer interaction in Salesforce, but part of the team’s or partner’s projects and issues are tracked in JIRA.


We formulated the problem as follows: to find a Salesforce and JIRA cloud connector for the average customer portrait.

Metrics Value
Project capacity 5850 issues
New features in the sprint 40
Defects in the sprint 60
Sprint frequency 2 per month
Frequency of synchronizations 2 per sprint (at the beginning and at the end
Total amount of synchronization processes 8 per month, 96 per year 200 issues per month, 2400 per year
Quantity of users Quantity of users

Criteria for the solution:

  • A user with knowledge level lower than Salesforce Admin should be able to configure the tool;
  • The time from the installation beginning to the first successful synchronization should take no more than 4 hours;
  • Availability of bidirectional synchronization between JIRA and Salesforce;
  • Availability of a free trial version;  
  • Synchronization of issues and comments;
  • Free or Low budget solution;


We found 6 possible solutions on AppExchange. In this article, we will look at Komunikado tool by JET BI.
