JIRA Service Desk Integration

How to install the Polly for JIRA Service Desk integration and set up your first Polly workflow.

With Polly for Jira Service Desk integration, you can automate gathering feedback for your service desk. Once set up, Polly will automatically send your customers a quick customer satisfaction survey when their request is resolved. The rating they provide, as well as any comments, will then be viewable both in Polly and on the Jira Service Desk issue itself.


What you will need prior to set-up

  1. A Jira Service Desk instance
  2. A Slack workspace for your team or company
  3. Polly installed on your Slack workspace. Follow this link to install Polly for your Slack workspace
  4. Access to Polly's API and Workflows. Contact us if you do not have access

Once that has been done, we can start building your Feedback Workflow with Polly for Jira Service Desk.

✏️Note: In order to send the polly to the customer, we identify them using their email appearing on the JIRA issue. So it will only work if their email in Slack matches their email in JIRA.

This workflow will not work for shared channel members. For example, if you work with an agency and they are in your workspace as shared channel members, the workflow will not work for the agency members
