How to connect multiple Jira sites to Jam

Each Jam team workspace can connect to one Jira site. That means if you're working with multiple companies or clients where each one uses its own Jira site, you will need to create a new Jam team workspace for each company/client, and connect each Jam team workspace to the relevant Jira site for that company/client.

Here's how to create multiple Jam team workspaces and connect them to separate Jira sites:

  1. Go to the Jam dashboard: jam.dev

  2. Click "Invite Teammates" or "Add a Team"

  3. Jam will walk you through the steps of creating a team.

  4. Go to your newly created team settings. Click on "Connected Apps". Then click on "Jira". The Jira authentication flow will open in a new tab.

  5. Select the Jira site you want to connect to.

  6. After you are done connecting to Jira, you will be able to see which Jira site is connected to that Jam team workspace.

  7. Repeat this process of creating a new Jam team workspace + connecting the corresponding Jira site for every Jira site you need to connect to Jam.

If you need to swap which Jira site is connected to a Jam team, follow these 3 steps:

First, you will need to disconnect Jira from the Jam team settings.

Then you will need to login to Jira and disconnect Jam by going to https://id.atlassian.com/manage-profile/apps, finding Jam, and clicking on "Remove access".

Finally, you can go back to the Jam settings page and re-connect Jam to the new Jira site.
