Thousands of engineers use WorkBoard to define and align the key results they drive through their work, much of which is tracked in Jira. We’re excited to announce a new plug in and deeper WorkBoard-Jira integration to make it much easier for teams to keep their big picture impact top of mind as they tackle everyday product decisions.
Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) in WorkBoard help clarify the purpose and business value of the work technical teams do every day while Jira helps keep that work organized and easy to get done. Until now, these teams needed to move back and forth between Jira and WorkBoard Now, purpose and productivity come together with WorkBoard OKRs inside Jira while teammates outside Jira use WorkBoard to see the development team's real impact on company strategic priorities.
This integration and native user experience complements WorkBoard’s existing Jira integration, which automatically updates results in WorkBoard when work is completed in Jira. With the new plug in, developers have a tab in Jira with their WorkBoard My OKRs page and a page with any key results they steward that aren’t updated automatically as work is completed within Jira – for example the number of beta customers live.
In addition, key results are displayed on the Jira issues that are contributing to their progress, and developers can run JQL queries to report on issues that are not aligned to results, so it's easy to ensure the team’s work is aligned to the outcomes the organization wants to drive.
WorkBoard users with the Jira plug in can now:

And while the sprints and tasks in Jira or ADO help track what needs to be done, OKRs in WorkBoard track and convey the results the team is driving:
