There are many reasons to link issues, and many ways to do so. To use Insight or not? Customers still often ask this question. Issue-linking provides the foundational capability for many of our solution blueprints, from PPM to GRC and beyond.

We’ll cover data catalogues, asset records in Jira, requests from Service Management, and the power and limitations of object graphing.
