Start Connecting with Jira for Employee Onboarding

Last updated Fri Jun 10 2022

Use this recipe to handle new hire and HR tasks in Jira as part of your employee onboarding process. The recipe includes:

  • A Boomi design to create a Jira epic for each new hire, and create pre-defined tasks within that epic. (A Jira epic is a large body of work that can be broken down into a number of smaller stories or “Issues” in Jira.)
  • Notes about where Boomi uses Master Data Hub within our implementation of this process.
  • Test payloads to run the process with minimal configuration.


We built an employee onboarding process using the Boomi platform. This recipe explores our use of Jira for new-hire task management. Task management is a fundamental part of employee onboarding. A good task management strategy is user-friendly, functional, and secure.

Jira is a best-in-breed cloud task management platform, most often used for software engineering work. We chose Jira as our system of record for new hire onboarding tasks, because it has excellent in-built task management features. It was also conveniently already part of our Boomi tech stack, so we could integrate with it without requiring any new infrastructure or costs.

Once the pattern is set up, you can customize this onboarding task management to your own requirements and systems. The possibilities are endless. Get started today!
