SoftSync is a powerful app that enables you to sync your projects, tasks, and user activities between Jira Cloud and Teamwork.

Note: The SoftSync integration is available to all paid Teamwork subscriptions. You will need to sign up to SoftSync to use the integration.

For any queries relating to the SoftSync integration, please contact the SoftSync support team.

Within SoftSync, you can create a sync to your Teamwork site and connect it with Jira Cloud.



Step 1: Creating an administrator account

To sync Teamwork and Jira using SoftSync, you will first need to create a new owner company site administrator account in your Teamwork site. This user account will be used by SoftSync to sync your data.

Note: A user account with top level permissions is required to ensure the sync works as intended.
