In this tutorial, you integrate the popular tools Git and Jira into a value stream and link them together.

In this tutorial, you learn how to link Git and Jira items in a value stream. When tools are linked, you can access information about both tools from the value stream dots. For instance, you can access Git pull requests associated with Jira issues. If you do not use Git, the concepts that you will learn in this tutorial apply to other source control tools. Similarly, if you do not use Jira, the concepts that you will learn apply to other issue-tracking tools. The DQL queries that you define to filter data are similar to those that you use in all value streams.
