Create a unified, automated, and detailed catalog of your software architecture by importing services from Jira Service Management as components in Compass.
Importing services from Jira Service Management fast-tracks building your component catalog. The import process:
creates components in Compass and copies over details like name, description, and tier from Jira Service Management
adds a label to Compass components for easy grouping and search
adds two-way links between the Compass component and the service in Jira Service Management for easy navigation between the two objects
automatically fetches and shows incident events from Jira Service Management on the components' activity feed in Compass
In Jira Service Management ensure:
you have access to at least one service project
the Services feature is enabled in Project settings > Features > Operations for your service project
This is required so Compass can access the services to import from Jira Service Management.
In Compass, select Create > Import components from the main navigation.
Next to Jira Service Management, select Import.
Select a Jira Service Management project from the menu.
Select Select services.
Select the services you want to import, then select Import.
When the import completes, select View components to see the imported components.
Select a Compass component and see its details.
On the component's Overview page, select the service link under the Jira Service Management field. You'll be taken to the service in Jira Service Management. A link to the Compass component is added to:
the Compass field in the service's right sidebar
the Affected services section of any associated incidents for the service
After importing services as Compass components, you can update any details in Compass or Jira Service Management anytime. However, the changes don't sync between the two products.
You can import a service from Jira Service Management multiple times. Reimporting updates the Compass component's details with the latest information from Jira Service Management. Any links added to the component through Compass are also removed, thereby removing any connected data like events and metrics.
Before starting the import process, ensure access to at least one service project in Jira Service Management.
Sometimes, an import may not be complete due to network issues. If that happens, try importing the services again. Compass will prevent creating duplicate components by checking the linked service in Jira Service Management. Any components created during previous imports will be updated with the latest information from Jira Service Management, and any links added to the component through Compass will be cleared.
Sometimes, some services you chose will fail to import. If that happens, download the error logs at the end of the import to see the specific reason for failure. Fix the underlying issue and attempt importing the services again.
