View the Jira Activity Log

As a Jira administrator, you can view the exceptions and errors that occur during the synchronization or creation of the tickets between Adobe Workfront and Jira in an Activity Log.

Access requirements

You must have the following:

Adobe Workfront plan*

Important: We recommend that you create separate system administrator accounts in Jira and Workfront to dedicate to this integration, rather than using existing ones that might be attached to users.

Access level configurations*

You must be a Workfront administrator. For information on Workfront administrators, see Grant a user full administrative access.

Note: If you still don't have access, ask your Workfront administrator if they set additional restrictions in your access level. For information on how a Workfront administrator can modify your access level, see Create or modify custom access levels.

*To find out what plan, license type, or access you have, contact your Workfront administrator.
