Adobe XD for Jira Software Cloud — Streamline Design-to-Development Workflows
While great experiences start with design, translating your designs into lines of code can be a challenge when design and development teams are siloed and use different tools. But these teams must come together to produce products and experiences that transform businesses and delight customers.
Today we’re excited to announce that Adobe XD, the end-to-end solution for UX/UI design, now integrates with Jira Software Cloud, your team’s favorite development tool, to reduce friction and help streamline design-to-development workflows. With the integration, designers can associate XD prototypes and design specs with Jira issues to keep projects organized and provide developers with everything they need to know in the environment they know.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Go to the Atlassian Marketplace to install XD for Jira Cloud.
Step 2: Use XD to create your prototype.
Step 3: Click the XD share icon to publish your prototype or design spec, then generate a dynamic public or private sharing link.
Step 4: Paste the link into the XD add-on module in any Jira issue.
Attached XD prototype and design specs provide thumbnails, metadata, and designer’s comments. That way developers can get rich context at a glance and single-click access to the latest designs.
Step 5: Click “View” to access prototypes and design specs. This links out to the most recent designs so you are always in the know.
Now your teams have one place to view shared prototypes and design specs in context of your Jira issue.
Design specs include a lot of the information developers need to quickly get into production, like colors, measurements, fonts, and production-ready assets that can be exported out to streamline handoffs.
For more information, check out the video here. Users of Jira Cloud can get the XD for Jira Cloud add-on from the Atlassian marketplace starting today. With one place to view prototypes and design specs, the ability to attach multiple prototypes or design specs, and streamline design-to-development handoffs, you’ll be able to bring digital experiences to life faster.
