Product managers, designers, and engineers use MURAL for better product planning and strategy. They leverage visual collaboration to plan, explore, understand, align on, and prioritize various product investments or activities resulting in new innovations, faster decision making, and clearer strategy.

With the MURAL integration for Jira Cloud you can spend more time building products customers love and less time on administration.

Easily transform the output of product planning and strategy in MURAL into epics, stories, and tasks in Jira without transcribing a single sticky note. Import issues from Jira for more productive sprint planning, backlog prioritization, and even stand ups that are visualized in MURAL. Everything from user story mapping to retrospectives are more productive and fun when you connect MURAL and Jira Cloud.

With the Jira Cloud integration, you can:

  • Import issues from Jira into a mural as sticky notes.

  • Export a sticky note from a mural to create a new issue in Jira.

  • See basic attributes from a Jira issues visualized on a sticky note.

If your MURAL account is not connected to your Jira account, you will be prompted to connect when importing or exporting. As well, you can connect from the integrations page in-app. Your Jira admin must install the MURAL app first by following these installation guidelines.
