Adobe Workfront integrations

You can integrate Adobe Workfront with third-party applications. Integrations can extend the utility of Workfront and tailor it to the needs of your organization.

The integrations for Workfront fall into the following categories:

Built-in (native) integrations

Workfront provides various integrations you can configure either directly from the Workfront application, or directly from another application by installing the Workfront add-in for that application.

Some of these integrations are available at no additional cost, while other integrations require an additional purchase:

Get started with built-in (native) integrations

To get started with built-in (native) integrations, follow the following workflow:

  1. Determine which native integration(s) best fits your needs

    When choosing an integration, it is important to pick an application that people already use regularly. Integrating Workfront with a regularly, or frequently, used application will increase adoption among your users.

    For a list of available integrations, see Integrations available at no additional cost and Integrations requiring an additional purchase.

  2. Identify your technology admin

    Identify your organization’s technology admin for the application you want to integrate with Workfront. For example, if you choose to integrate with Jira, you must connect with your company’s Jira admin and involve them in any configuration needs within their platform. You should also involve this admin in any conversation with Workfront Customer Support.

    To get your admin started, you’ll need to provide them with the specific instructions for that integration. For links to these instructions, see Integrations available at no additional cost.

  3. Engage with Workfront Customer Support

    If your admin has any issues with the native integration setup, you can engage with Workfront Customer Support to help guide or troubleshoot. While Workfront will not set up the integration for you, we are committed to giving you all the necessary tools and resources you need to do it yourself. You can speak directly to Customer Support, or you can explore the extensive resource articles to help you easily set up your integration.

    To connect with customer support, see Contact Customer Support.

    For links to help articles, see Integrations available at no additional cost. and Integrations requiring an additional purchase.

    For instruction on creating a support case, see Contact Customer Support.

    NOTE

    You must be the Assigned Support Contact at your organization to submit a support case. After the case is submitted, you can add your technology admin for the other system to the conversation. They cannot contact support directly by themselves.

We understand that the available built-in (native) integrations might not meet all of your company needs. If this is the case, contact your Account Executive to discuss a custom integration.
