Google Drive Integration to Jira

Jira & Google Drive

Give your team the information they need using the Google Drive integration to link files and folders to Jira issues. Download files and browse folders directly in Jira to save time and effort. Say goodbye to static file attachments!

How it works

Step 1


Install the app Connectors for Jira from the Atlassian Marketplace.

Step 2


Enable the Google Drive integration in the app configuration page.

Step 3


Connect your Google account to Jira to start using the integration.


Link files & folders to Jira issues

Stay up-to-date by linking files and folders from Google Drive to a Jira issue – unlike file attachments, there’s no need to re-link after making changes. Link entire folders to add context to projects.


Download files from Jira

Save time by downloading linked files through Jira in a variety of formats (DOCX, PDF, CSV, etc.). Users can only see files they have the right Google permissions for, so your data stays secure.


Browse folders from Jira

Stay informed by navigating folders directly from the issue page. Open files and folders in Google Drive for viewing or editing.

Where are my linked files and folders stored?

Your Google files remain in Google Drive. Connectors for Jira only stores a link between your files and folders and your Jira issues.

If I unlink a file or folder from a Jira issue, will it also delete it from Google Drive?

No. Unlinking a file or folder from your Jira issue will only remove the link created by the app. The Google Drive file or folder will remain untouched.

Can everybody see my linked files and folders in my issue?

Access to linked files and folders follows the permissions established in Google Drive. If your teammate can't see the file in their Drive, they won’t see it in the issue.

Where is the integration's data stored?

Links are stored in issue properties. See the Stored Data section of our Security Statement page for more information.
