Zoho Sprints is a project management tool designed specifically for the needs of agile methodology. Such an approach is perfect for IT projects! It helps developer teams create, test and release high-quality products continuously. To help such teams do that, Zoho Sprints offers several integrations with key dev tools that developers all over the world are using for work daily.
Whether your team is using Jenkins, GitLab or BitBucket, Zoho Sprints helps you connect your tasks and work items directly with the code your team is working on. This will give you better insights and control over the whole project. And it will probably help make releases go more smoothly! So, if you’re curious about what each integration can do for you, keep on reading.
As an open source CI/CD automation software, Jenkins is a popular tool that lets developers continuously build, test and deploy their code. It’s reliable and free.
You can use the Jenkins plugin for Zoho Sprints so your devs can get a better overview of their work and see how it fits into the project as a whole. Let them map jobs with work items and track logs, actions and build updates. Automate certain parts of the process by setting up pre and post-build actions! For instance, if a build fails, a new bug can be instantly created in Zoho Sprints. You can monitor all builds and view reports from Jenkins, all within Zoho Sprints.
That’s why the integration can help your next release go smoothly.
GitHub is a cloud-based repository hosting service. It lets developers around the world share their code, collaborate and make use of its version control feature that helps them easily view the changes they made. The platform has a strong open-source community.
Integration with Zoho Sprints means you can connect your code with your software projects. This means you can sync all repositories in GitHub with your project’s progress and get context for all commits and pull requests – plus, you’ll see everything from a single place. The integration lets you attach commits and pull requests to work items. Devs can also use quick commands to change the status of their work items without having to leave their workflow.
GitLab is somewhat similar to GitHub in that it also serves as a code repository and collaborative software development platform. It’s open source and mostly free to use, but it’s ideal for DevOps and DevSecOps projects.
Connect your GitLab account with Zoho Sprints so you can see more easily how all the coding is going. Manage all repositories from a single space, keep them synced with your work items in Sprints and get regular updates when a commit or a pull request has been sent. You can filter for a specific branch, duration or repository to attach pull requests and commits within work items. With quick commands, developers no longer have to leave their workflow in GitLab to update the status of their work items.
Bitbucket is a Git based collaboration and code hosting platform, but it’s mainly designed for private projects. That’s why it’s mostly used by businesses.
Integration of Zoho Sprints with Bitbucket offers similar advantages as connecting it with GitHub or GitLab. You can connect your code directly with specific tasks in the project management tool – this way both devs and project managers can always see what’s going on. Manage repositories from a single place and get relevant context for any commit or pull request directly within Zoho Sprints. Attach pull requests and commits to work items and use quick commands to update the status of your tasks without ever leaving your dev workflow.
5) Azure DevOps
As yet another great dev tool that upholds a culture of collaboration and agile methodology, Microsoft’s Azure DevOps offers an end-to-end DevOps toolchain for building and deploying software. Its advantage is that it can be used by cross-functional teams.
Integrate Zoho Sprints with Azure DevOps so your dev team always stays informed and on track. Attach commits and pull requests to specific work items – context will make it easier for devs to solve problems and prevent any misunderstandings. Quick commands will reduce the friction of going back and forth between apps. Devs can now use them to send updates on their progress while working so they don’t have to interrupt their current workflow.
Streamline Development by Integrating Zoho Sprints with Popular Dev Tools
Zoho Sprints integrations with Jenkins, GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket or Azure DevOps will help you merge your project management with software development. Give your devs all the context they need and reduce the number of unnecessary interruptions to their workflow. At the same time, your project managers will get better insight into the coding process. This means they’ll be able to better plan and organize tasks, as well as predict future project progress more accurately.
