Does anyone use JIRA in conjunction with Workfront? We use both systems and they are not integrated which is a huge pain. We are not going to get to a place where we use one system or another, given that we need project planning features as well as the developer-friendly features of JIRA.
It is certainly possible to connect the two either through the API or a vendor, but the biggest headache is figuring out how we want to configure it. We do a lot of resource planning in Workfront (in the Resource Grid) which is the trickiest part of the connection.
We'd like to get to a point where the project plan is initiated in Workfont, and further resolved into components in JIRA. For the most part we want these to sync back, but they need to be at the right point in the project timeline (we use sprints). I go back and forth about whether I want everything in JIRA to sync back at the detail level, given that we track our QA issues in JIRA and sometimes that becomes a lengthly list of small items (a Workfront project of 1000 small items would just not be very user friendly).
Would love to hear from anyone who has this working well.

Integrations you say?? Easy. Only kidding, but it certainly isn't difficult to get started and after being in the Workfront Ecosystem for awhile, we know a thing or two about typical and atypical use-cases.
