You can also integrate with Jira without syncing the structure and hierarchy of your story map — keeping your Avion stories and Jira issues in sync — without touching your epics. This lightweight approach allows your dev team to organise their backlog however they want.

Our in-depth, but straightforward setup process will guide you through all the different syncing possibilities, so you can dial it in just how your team likes it.
