WatchTower is an add-on that pulls issues from several Jiras and Trello and gathers them into an agile board. You can collect tasks from Cloud and Hosted Jiras as well as Trello at one place. The add-on maps the issues, indicates their origin and organizes them into columns. You can configure the board, and move issue cards within the board using drag-n-drop. The add-on allows logging your work from the board. WatchTower updates changes directly to tickets in source Jira instances.
