Create a Zendesk Sell Leads picker in Jira issues

Need: Reference Zendesk Sell leads in Jira issues

Can be used in a scenario where Jira is used to manage potential sell leads. With the "Zendesk Sell leads" field, a sales manager could select to what leads relate the Jira issue.

This is just an example, the Zendesk Sell datasource gives access to plenty of information like Name, Email and Status. Check the Zendesk Sell REST API documentation for more information.

Solution: Connect Jira to Zendesk Sell and create a leads picker

We use Elements Connect to connect to Zendesk Sell datasource and populate a custom field with a list of all Zendesk Sell leads.

In this example, we list all leads in Zendesk Sell
