Visualize anything together with your team — work on the product backlog with digital sticky notes, create flowcharts, diagrams and wireframes. Attach boards to Jira issues and collaborate with your team in real-time like on a whiteboard meeting.
✏️ You can also embed Miro boards with the Atlassian Smart link feature.
✏️ Note that Miro has two types of Jira integrations: Jira add-on (which allows embedding Miro boards on the Jira side) and Jira Cards. To learn more about Jira Cards, visit this article.

Jira notification about the successful installation
Please note that as an administrator you don't need to map Miro users to Jira users during setup. Each user will have to authorize themselves in Miro within Jira.
How to use the add-on
Attaching boards to Jira issues
To attach a board to a Jira issue, open the issue in Jira. Click Add Board in the Miro boards section.
The add-on button appears after the installation
💡 If you don't have the Miro boards section, find it in the context menu of the issue.
Adding the Miro boards section to a Jira issue
You will see a picker with Miro boards. Choose the board you wish to add (feel free to switch between your teams in the picker). If you're notauthorized in Miro, you'll need to sign in first.
Set the sharing settings of the board in the drop-down menu. You can make the board available for viewing and commenting so that the users who do not have a profile in Miro can also access it.
✏️ For Enterprise plan Miro users, your access settings will follow organization-wide access controls which might imply that some sharing options may be restricted. Learn more: Managing Enterprise sharing policy for embed integrations.
Sharing settings when attaching a board to a Jira issue

Atlassian Smart Link for Miro
You can embed Miro boards into Jira issues using the Atlassian Smart Link feature. The feature allows you to automatically embed a board without the need to install a plugin.
✏️ Please note that only those users who have access to the embedded board on the Miro's side will be able to work with the preview after connecting their Miro and Atlassian accounts. If you'd like to make the preview available for all Jira users, feel free to use the Jira add-on.
Go to a Jira issue and simply paste a board link or type /link to insert. If you use the feature for the first time, you will be asked to connect your Miro account. Click Connect to preview, authorize in Miro, and choose a team from which you will embed your boards.
Choosing a team to embed boards from
When you paste a Miro board's link into a Jira issue, it will turn into a Jira widget automatically. Click the link and you will see the options to display the link as a card or as an embed.
