Prerequisite

You need a Zapier account first. If you don’t have an account, click here to create a Zapier account.

Introduction

In this article, we will try integrating both Cellcast and Jira. So what we want to achieve here is to send an SMS to specified contacts when a new issue is added.

So, let’s get started.

Instruction

Step 1. Log in to your Zapier account. And then click Make a Zap! button.

Step 2. Let’s search and select Jira as our trigger app. Next, check New Issue as our trigger action. Then click the Save + Continue button.

Step 3. Let’s link your Jira account.

Select Choose Account. Sign in using your Jira account. Then allow access. Then click the Save + Continue button.

Step 4. Let’s finish up our trigger app setup.

Go back to your Zapier setup page. Then click the Fetch & Continue button. Lastly click the Continue button.

Step 5. Ok, let’s set up our Action app. Let’s search and choose Cellcast. Next select Send SMS as our action. Then click the Save + Continue button.

Step 6. Next, let’s add your Cellcast account.

Click Connect an Account button. There should be a popup saying to add or allow your Zapier and Cellcast account to be linked together. Type in your Cellcast username and API key.

Click the Test button to check if it was successful. Then click the Save + Continue button.

Step 7. Let’s set up our SMS message.

In the To input box, enter the number you want to be notified about new tasks (or use a contact list filled with all the contacts needing to be notified by using the Send SMS to Contacts List action).

Enter a custom generic message into the Message input box about the task using the Jira placeholders (NameDescriptionEtc…).

Set the From input box as your name or the business’s name. Then click the Continue button.

Step 8. Let’s finish up everything.

Click the Create & Continue button. Then the Finish button. Lastly, name your Zap, and turn it ON.
