Binding a Project to a Connection

This guide will help you bind a Jira Project to a Salesforce Connection.

You will need to bind a Jira Project to a connection before you can associate a Jira issue with a Salesforce Object and synchronize the two.

If you haven't done so, consult the Setting up a connection to Salesforce page before continuing.
