If you have already used Jira next-gen projects in your company, you can now significantly refine your project synchronization, migration, and integration. And if you are a small or medium business player who is still looking to optimize your project management, turn on your improvement radar right now. We are happy to inform you that from now on, TFS4JIRA is available for next-gen projects.

Why is it so important? Let’s find out!

Back in October 2018, Atlassian launched a next-gen project type to give a helping hand to smaller companies who have been looking for easier project management within a Jira software environment.

Ease of use and team autonomy were the priorities, as Jira’s next-gen projects don’t require a dedicated Jira admin inside the organization to set everything up and running.

The idea is that with next-gen projects solution, you can manage your work faster and easier, by removing the project’s bottlenecks.

Going for next-gen – far more than just simpler project administration

The main point was to make work easy and effective without the need for an admin to configure particular elements and events. That’s a real time saver!

However, a more straightforward and more user-friendly version of Jira Software Cloud solution doesn’t mean it’s lacking any important features. On the contrary, Atlassian has done what it takes to equip the next-gen project type with the tools known from classic projects.

Moreover, the next-gens have brought more perks to the table. Here are some of the functionalities you’re looking for:

  • Jira roadmap – orchestrate your projects from one place;
  • Releases and Versions – track software you have developed;
  • Backlog – create issues faster.

TFS4JIRA supports Jira next-gen project synchronization

Considering the progressive development of the next-gen project, and an array of product updates rolled out by Atlassian, introducing TFS4JIRA- one of our flagship app to be compatible with next-gen was a natural way to go for us.

If your company is looking for an efficient way to synchronize between two tools: Jira and Azure Dev Ops, TFS4JIRA will ideally come in line with your product development processes.

As the next-gen functionalities we mentioned above, will play a significant role in your projects and equip your team with the necessary tools to perform, TFS4JIRA will help undertake significant processes between Jira and Azure for your team’s essential projects from migration to synchronization.

Hierarchy synchronization

You can now synchronize and maintain project hierarchy levels (Epic - Story/Task - Sub-task) between Jira Next-Gen project and Azure DevOps project using Parent-Child relation.

Sprints synchronization

Sprints ↔︎ Iteration Path synchronization for Next-Gen projects works the same as for Classic projects. Likewise, three mapping modes are available:

  • Copy full Azure DevOps tree path
  • Copy last part of Azure DevOps tree path
  • Map values

Profile configuration

TFS4JIRA out of the box supports the synchronization of Jira Next-Gen projects. Setting up a profile for such a project is the same as in the classic one- no additional configuration required.
