Integrate Jira Service Desk Cloud with Zapier


The Zapier integration with Jira Service Desk Cloud lets you automate tasks you would otherwise have to do manually. By using these Zaps, you’ll save time as Zapier moves information between your apps. A Zap consists of a trigger and an action where the trigger indicates when the action is performed.

Supported triggers and actions


  • New Request - Triggers when a request is created.

  • Request Updated - Triggers when a request is updated.


  • Create Request - Create a new request.

Example Zaps

You can set up Zaps with the thousands of app integrations available on Zapier. Some example zaps are:

  • Receive notifications when new Jira Service Desk requests are created.

  • Send the contents of a Jira Service Desk request when it’s created to create a task.

  • Create regularly scheduled Jira Service Desk requests.
