The focus of today's release is on Integrations—tools that connect Siteimprove with your other business applications to make your workflows seamless:
- More items added to the Integrations menu: Smart integrations, now accessible in one place.
- Jira Connector: Create Jira issues for Policy and Accessibility issues directly in Siteimprove.
Note: By default, only Account Owner and Administrator roles have access to the Integrations menu and Jira Connector.
Last week you may have noticed the new Integrations menu item which collected API keys, CMS plugin, and the Share Widget in one place. Today we're introducing even more integrations that you can use to connect Siteimprove with the business applications you use. Some of them are oldies but goodies (Siteimprove Accessibility Checker and DCI™ Browser Extension) but we've also added integrations with Tableau (which could previously only be accessed on the Siteimprove website) and Jira for your project management needs.
Create Jira issues directly in Policy and Accessibility.
Does your organization use Jira for managing projects? Jira Connector lets you create Jira issues directly in Siteimprove for Policy matches and Accessibility issues. That means you can assign tasks to team members without having to switch back and forth between Siteimprove and Jira. The most convenient bit? Every Jira issue you create in Siteimprove includes a direct link back to the relevant page in Policy or Accessibility, so your team members know exactly where to get started. Learn more about how to create Jira issues.
Jira Connector pulls in all the required fields from your Jira settings into Siteimprove.
For the moment you can only create issues under Accessibility and Policy, but we'll be launching the same capability for SEO issues soon.
Get started by setting up a Jira connection. Note: Jira Connector only works with Jira Software Cloud and not self-hosted Jira.
