Installing the Salesforce Package

This page will guide you through the process of installing the Salesforce Package for Connector for Salesforce & Jira, which is a mandatory process to perform various actions from within Salesforce.

This is the first step in allowing users to create or synchronize Salesforce objects to issues in Jira.

Before proceeding, ensure you have Installed the Connector in your Jira instance.

What if there's a new version?

    When a new version of the package is available, ServiceRocket will push an upgrade to your Salesforce instance. This will ensure your instance automatically receives bug fixes and improvements without the hassle of a manual upgrade.

    When a new version of the package is available, an admin will have to manually update the Salesforce package.

      1. Jira Cloud: Go to this Salesforce Package listing on Salesforce AppExchange.
