Teamworkx OTRS Integration for Jira

Seamless integration of service and development processes: service and development - a clash of two worlds. Different systems to monitor activities. Missing interfaces. Erroneous information and loss of information. We know this from our own experience and, as a specialist for systems integration, see it very often at our clients.

Teamworkx OTRS Integration for JiraImproving collaboration between service and development is a special challenge for many development companies. Very often, substantial efficiency can already be achieved by preventing media inconsistencies with the automated transfer of processes. 

The use of OTRS for the service/helpdesk and/or Jira for development (especially of software) is particularly popular. With the app that consists of two components, catworkx provides an integration element that allows not only for automated transfer of processes from one system to the other, but also for synchronization of such processes after processing. In this context, the transfer of comments and appendices plays a particular role.
