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.

|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;
