Integrating InVision with Jira Server

This article is specific to InVision for Jira Server. If you are using Jira Cloud, check out this article instead.

With InVision for Jira Server, you can close the gap between design and engineering, making it easier to work together. Embed a visual preview of your prototype directly into a Jira issue, allowing others on your team to view, comment, and inspect your prototype.

InVision for Jira Server works for all major versions of Jira that Atlassian supports.

Attaching a prototype

To attach a prototype to a Jira issue:

  1. Open your prototype in InVision Cloud and create a share URL.
  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.

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 Server?

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 open the prototype, click the Preview button. If you click the Comment button, your prototype will open in a new browser tab in Comment mode. To open your prototype in Inspect mode in InVision, click the Inspect button. Clicking the thumbnail image will open the prototype share link in a new browser tab.
