HackerOne and JIRA integration update: more improvements, fewer clicks

HackerOne and JIRA Integration

Last month, we announced a major improvement to how HackerOne integrates with JIRA. We’re following that up with more good news around making simple cross-platform tasks even easier - specifically, we’ve got three updates that improve ease-of-use and two-way integration. 

What does this mean? Well, Atlassian's Head of Product Partnerships and Integrations, Bryant Lee, had this to say, "HackerOne's latest integration with JIRA brings an efficient hacker-powered security solution to development teams in our community. Bug and vulnerability fixes just got a lot easier starting with this integration."

Go-live: HackerOne for JIRA via the Atlassian Marketplace

The HackerOne for JIRA application is now live on the Atlassian Marketplace. For JIRA Cloud users, it’s easier than ever to connect JIRA to HackerOne. JIRA will automatically link to your HackerOne instance, and most essential information can be pulled into JIRA with a single click.

One-click JIRA issue creation in HackerOne

Speaking of one click, creating new JIRA issues within HackerOne is now that easy. Just click a button to create a JIRA issue when updating a bug report in HackerOne. The process runs in the background, and the ticket will automatically be referenced in your HackerOne report.

Stronger two-way communication

Last week, we announced our bi-directional integration that lets JIRA users sync from JIRA to HackerOne. Now it’s possible for development teams to customize this even further, whether they need to sync specific workflows from JIRA to HackerOne or from HackerOne to JIRA.

This new communication line will make it easier to review information across teams and tools. The following events and directions are currently supported:
