Set up a Connection
Synchronization between two instances requires a configured Connection.
One side needs to initiate the connection and send an invitation to the partner (the Destination instance).
The other side needs to finish the configuration from their side.
You can synchronize with any of the supported issue tracking platforms. For example, you can sync between Servicenow and JIRA Cloud or Server, even if your JIRA Server instance is behind a firewall in a private network. For more details check typical use cases.
To start synchronization with your partner - Initiate Connection.
If you have an Invitation code - Accept an Invitation.
