Valido now integrates with Jira.
If you don't know it yet, Jira is a web application that has become almost a standard in the field of project management, task tracking, and bug resolution. Especially for software development, Jira is an excellent tool that can significantly facilitate workflow steps and cooperation for both small and large teams.
Thinking precisely about the management of errors found in an ecommerce, we have developed the integration of Valido App with Jira Software. With this new integration, it is now easier to categorize and prioritize the errors detected through the tests that Valido performs on your online store.
The integration of Valido with Jira also allows for automatic ticket creation, so that the corresponding team can track and resolve issues found on the ecommerce site. By automatically opening and filling in tickets in JIRA when incidents are detected, the workflow is streamlined and the risk of errors resulting from manual data entry is minimized. This means that the IT team or teams responsible for resolving the issues detected can easily track and manage them in JIRA, without having to constantly switch between different tools or systems.
