Currently, it’s not possible to filter by issue type or other conditions.

Attaching a prototype

To attach a prototype to a Jira issue:

  1. Open your prototype in InVision and create a public share link.

    The steps to create the share URL will depend on the version of InVision you're using.
    If you're on V7, follow these steps to create a public link.
    If you're on V6, follow these steps to create a share link instead.
    Not sure which version you're using? Find out here.

  2. Navigate to your Jira issue and, under the InVision section, enter the share URL.
  3. Click Attach prototype.

    An interactive preview of your prototype will appear.

Currently, it's not possible to attach password-protected prototypes.

If you encounter an error message, it’s likely there is a permissions issue. For more information, check out this article: Why can't I link my prototype via InVision for Jira Cloud?

Interacting with a prototype

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

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

The sign-in modal will appear as a separate pop-up window, so please ensure that pop-ups are allowed.
