Attach a prototype or freehand

You can attach any number of public prototypes and Freehand documents to Jira issues.

It's not possible to attach password-protected prototypes.

  1. Open your prototype or freehand in InVision and copy the public share link.

    The steps to create the public share link depend on the version of InVision you're using. Not sure which version you're using? Find out here.

  2. Navigate to your Jira issue and, under the InVision section, paste the share link.
  3. Select Attach.

An interactive preview of your prototype or freehand appears.

Interact with a freehand

After you attach a freehand, a thumbnail image appears on the issue. Any changes made to the freehand in Jira automatically appear in InVision; any changes made in InVision appear in Jira.

Select the freehand thumbnail to open the freehand. All the regular Freehand tools work, allowing you to collaborate or ideate on the fly without leaving Jira.

Interact with a prototype

After you attach a prototype, a thumbnail image appears. Any time you make changes to the prototype in InVision, the changes appear in Jira.

To preview all screens in the prototype, select the thumbnail image. Alternately, navigate to the top right of the image and select expand (jira-expand-icon.png). If you want to comment on or inspect the prototype, sign in to your InVision account. If if you only want to interact with the prototype, select Continue as guest.

Allow pop-ups to see the sign-in modal.

To close the prototype, select X.
