Want to see your app in Jira Cloud mobile? Glances have arrived!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Update: This feature is now generally available! Please see this developer community post for details.

Don't just peek or squint – take a proper glance at your app within Jira Cloud for iOS and Android.

That's right, third-party apps have arrived as glances on mobile. Is your app ready? (Of course, it is! Grab the bull by the horns. Or, rather, the code by the branch.)

What's a glance?

Currently, the web version of Jira displays third-party apps within issue details, showing which apps are connected and providing information to the issue (such as time-tracking with Tempo).

We call this feature a glance because users can take a quick glance at key information.

Until now, glances have only been supported in Jira's web version.

But now… Jira Cloud mobile has joined the glance party. Cue streamers!

The glance includes your app's icon, content, and status. Clicking the glance opens a separate glance panel with more information.
