    Not easy to implement but quite useful.

    Hi Joe,

    The integration leverages the JIRA workflow to optionally modify the status of a linked Zendesk ticket, you can read about it here. Communication between the two systems is done via a dedicated user account on each system. I assume your second point refers to the account under which comments are shared.

    To add a label to the linked JIRA issue from Zendesk, you need to add a tag that starts with 'jira_'

    If you need help setting up we integration or have other question we would be happy to help. Please email us at support@zendesk.com

    Better than the Legacy JIRA Connector but still lacks a number of features such as easy field to field mapping, notification schemes, etc

    fairly decent plugin, shame it needs a dedicated admin user to install (and is tied to this user as well, spamming that user with subscriptions on zendesk linked issues) Also updates to the plugin are lagging behind with regard to JIRA, delaying even minor updates of JIRA. Maybe post a time frame on the marketplace page to give some idea how long an update of JIRA should be delayed to keep the plugin functioning.

    Hi Finke,

    Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback.

    The integration does indeed requires a dedicated Zendesk account to work. This way JIRA users don't require their own Zendesk login. Since it's a dedicated integration account, there is no need to check emails for this account. Something that many customers find convenient.

    With regards to supporting JIRA updates, we do exhaustive testing for each major release and that can take time. Minor releases should be safe to take.

    It works well, but the problem is it's slow to look up zendesk information; it probably takes two seconds or so after I load a JIRA issue before I can start working with it, because it's hung up waiting for response from zendesk. Since probably only 10% of our JIRA issues are actually related to a zendesk ticket 90% of the lookups don't find anything anyway. Then whenever I make any change to the issue it does this lookup all over again. This really slows down our use of JIRA. It would be nice if there were an option to configure the Zendesk add-on so it would only try to look up zendesk tickets if a certain label were applied to the JIRA. Or a special link type that would be explicitly created for a zendesk ticket. Or even an option to instead of always automatically connecting to zendesk for every ticket, have a button to click in the JIRA that would request the lookup--that would be nice because even when there is a Zendesk associated with a JIRA, much of the time when we're working with the issue we don't need to worry about what the Zendesk ticket status is. Obviously not everyone would want this; some will prefer the lookup being automatic as it is today. But for teams like ours where the large majority of our JIRAs are not related to zendesk it would be worth it to reduce the frustration... when we're doing bug scrubs, sprint planning, etc. and walking through JIRAs quickly in meetings, waiting for this lookup on every issue before we can start working with it is a real productivity killer.
