Integrate support and development teams through the integration of Agile projects and Zendesk Support. Information about related issues will be displayed as links in the Zendesk tickets, and related tickets in Flowlu—in the issue card.

To install Flowlu, you must have the administrator rights for your Flowlu and Zendesk accounts.

  1. Go to the administrator settings in your Zendesk.
  2. In the left menu, find the Application item. Next, find the App Store item and go to it.
  3. In the search bar, find Flowlu.
  4. Click on the Flowlu app. On the opened page, click Install.
  5. Log in to your Zendesk account to install the application.

Now you need to generate an API key in Flowlu.

How to Get an API Key

  1. Log in to your Flowlu account.
  2. Go to Portal Settings → Main Settings → API Settings  Create.

3. In the access settings, select the application Agile Projects, specify the name and save.

4. Copy the received API Key and specify in the application settings.

    5. Enter your portal address in the Flowlu Domain field and click the Install button.

    Please note that the portal address must be entered without https://

    The application is installed. Now, when viewing a ticket in Zendesk Support, in 3 clicks you can create issues in the Agile projects or link them with existing ones. To do this, open the ticket, click the Applications button (1) and click on the Create issue or Link issue buttons (2).

    Creating Issue From the Ticket

    Choose which project the issue belongs to if you have several projects in Agile.

    Choose issue type, set priority, add description or copy from the ticket.

    After this, the project manager will receive a notification about the created issue:

    Next, when going to Flowlu, you can assign a responsible person for the issue and add it to the sprint. Assign yourself as the issue creator so that you will receive notifications about changes in the issue.

    Linking Ticket to the Current Issue

    If the ticket in Zendesk is an addition to the existing issue in Agile or just a duplicate, then you can link the ticket to the issue. To do this, specify the prefix and issue number in Flowlu.

    Tickets from Zendesk will be displayed in the issue on the External Relations tab. Here, the ticket number in Zendesk, the last comment, the date and time of creation are displayed. By clicking the link, you can go either to the detailed page of the ticket in Flowlu to view the last comment or immediately in Zendesk.

    Ticket detailed page in Flowlu

    You can link several issues in Flowlu to each ticket in Zendesk, and several tickets to each issue. Thanks to this, developers will see which issues are in priority and which ones can wait.

    As soon as the issue is completed, the creator and project manager will receive a notification in Flowlu and will be able to promptly notify the client.
