How To Look For A Contact in Teamwork After An Update in Jira

Every company big and small use project management. This is an area of business that is constantly evolving, getting more complex. Just as team collaboration is becoming increasingly sophisticated, so is project management. The good news is that there are many tools that help automate and ease our management efforts, increasing the value we get from our work, and streamlining our projects.

Teamwork and Jira
A lot of our clients have already adopted Teamwork. And we've received a lot of inquiries about specific integrations involving it. The tool is preferred because of its intuitive interface, time-tracking, analytical and billing options. Cloudpipes gives you the liberty to use Teamwork in variety of ways, depending on your goals. Whether you update and sync contacts, tasks or projects, our platform let you customize your workflow almost endlessly.

The other popular app that our customers are using is Jira. It provides powerful bug tracking, issue tracking, and project management capabilities. The platform is vastly used for synchronizing multiple Jira instances or migrating from legacy and/or other systems to Jira. Although not always easy to grasp, Jira offer tremendous possibilities to users working with cloud, on-premise or hybrid cloud solutions.

It's no coincidence that today's post is all about Teamwork and Jira. On their own they're formidable products, but brought together they're even more powerful. The pair is quite suited for all sorts of project management. With this blogpost we'll show you but one aspect of project management where the duo exceeds. But the implications of both apps combined with Cloudpipes are nearly limitless.

Connecting Teamwork and Jira
We'll start by logging into Cloudpipes. Not registered? No worries, creating an account is easy.

Once you're in, hit the Create a Pipeline button to start building your workflow. First, we're going to start with the Jira Issue Updated trigger. Trigger pipes activate the pipeline upon automatic request.


Here we can specify not just the account name, project, and issue type, but if needed we can also add additional conditions like labels, date of creation, description etc.

Next, we'll use the Search Task pipe to look for specific Teamwork tasks. We'll segment those by ID and comment. We can always broaden our filtering by adding more custom fields or by using regular expressions.


Once filtered, we'll make sure that every Teamwork task that matches a certain criteria, is subsequently updated. Additionally, the IF/THEN can be further expanded by telling Cloudpipes how to proceed with mismatched tasks. This will make our pipeline logically more complex.


The task will be updated by content, description and status.


That's how you can automate your project management efforts using just Teamwork and Jira. It shouldn't take you more than a few minutes to set up your workflow.

This is a quick way to streamline your project. Have a question, suggestion, or just wanna say hi? We'd love to hear from you.
