Jira - Asana: Subtasks synchronization

Making sure your tasks and subtasks play well between Jira and Asana is vital for smooth teamwork. This step-by-step guide will walk you through the process, making it easy to map, configure, and sync tasks and subtasks seamlessly.

Mapping Tasks and Subtasks:

  1. Task and Subtask Mapping:

    • Ensure tasks and subtasks are appropriately mapped between Jira and Asana. Match their counterparts in both tools for effective synchronization.

  2. Enable the Synchronization:

    • Click on the subtasks mapping, navigate to the hierarchy section, and select "Synchronize Subtasks relationship."

    • Enable the synchronization for the Subtasks relationships.

    • Configure subtask relationships in the dropdown menu. Decide if they should sync with their counterpart or get linked to a specific parent task by providing its ID.

    • Click "Apply" and "Save" to apply the changes to the integration.

  1. Initiating Sync for Subtasks:

    • By configuring the settings, any new subtasks will be automatically synchronized with their parent tasks on Jira and Asana.

  2. Handling Existing itens:

    • If the subtasks were created before this synchronization, it will be necessary to perform a migration to ensure that the older subtasks are migrated. Follow the necessary migration steps to create the relevant link.

Conclusion: Synchronizing tasks and subtasks in the Jira<>Asana integration improves collaboration and ensures consistent project management. By mapping, configuring relationships, and enabling synchronization, you create a seamless workflow between the two platforms.
