Hot Topic: Meisterplan | Jira integration is moving forward

Recommended Posts

You may have already seen the post about our Meisterplan and JIRA integration plans on our list of hot topics.

During the last weeks we have spoken to a number of customers and partners about what they’d like to see in a JIRA + Meisterplan integration. Thanks to everyone who has helped so far and please continue to give us input.

We received so many great suggestions that we could easily spend the next 6 months building everyone’s wish-list of features ?
But we don't want to keep you waiting so long! And I'm convinced that the first feature set will be a significant improvement for many people when working with Meisterplan and JIRA.

Our plan for v1: once configured, there will be 3 simple steps to create a transparent and feasible plan by using Meisterplan and JIRA (see design mock-up below):
1. Import the name of an item (Epic, Release or Project) as a Meisterplan project. The project will be automatically linked to the JIRA object within Meisterplan.
2. Enter the resource allocations for this project in Meisterplan
3. You will immediately see which issues are open and can be delivered by the provided allocation – and, maybe, the issues which cannot be done with the given allocation

That´s it!

And as the name ‘linked System' says, it´s a connection but not an full data import. You will not have to maintain data in two systems.
The management planning stays in Meisterplan while the work management stays in JIRA. Our new view in Meisterplan will create a visual link.

Of course, we will also provide some additional features for usability, but basically steps 1 to 3 will enable you to create a plan that works with your JIRA data.

Looking forward to the release,

Stefan, That looks like a very efficient route for using Jira with Meisterplan. I greatly look forward to the release!

Hi everyone, here’s a quick update from the Meisterplan team!

We are currently implementing the first iteration of the link between Jira and Meisterplan.
With this iteration, users will be able to link Meisterplan projects to Jira epics. The other types of Jira items that were mentioned in the original post (Jira project, Jira release,…) are not part of this first iteration.

Here’s an updated peek at how this will look for users who import a Jira epic as a new Meisterplan project:


First, users select which epics they want to import. Then they assign resources to those projects in Meisterplan, and get a clear view of how many Jira stories can get finished given the allocation entered in Meisterplan.

Stay tuned for further updates (don’t forget to follow this thread by clicking “Follow” in the top right corner)!

Hello everybody,

Exciting stuff – our first beta testers are taking the upcoming Jira integration for a spin!
There are still a few open spots, so be sure to let us know if you’re interested in Meisterplan and Jira or if you have any questions. Stay tuned for a release soon!

With the first release of Meisterplan for Jira, you can link Meisterplan projects to Jira epics and view Jira data directly in Meisterplan. See at a glance which work steps are included in a project and which steps can be completed with the resources allocated in Meisterplan.

Hello everyone,

As we received feedback from our beta testers, we have decided to increase the scope of the first release of the Jira integration. Many told us that support for JQL would be really valuable to them. So we’ll support using JQL queries to specify the Jira data you want to link to a Meisterplan project!

This way you’ll have full flexibility for packaging Jira work into a Meisterplan project – from individual issues to releases or sprints to entire Jira projects.
