How to label security tasks in Jira

  • Updated

Vanta detects priority from Jira's default priority value set (“Highest,” “High,” “Medium,” “Low,” “Lowest”). If a default Jira priority value is not present, Vanta checks for P0/P1/P2/P3 issue labels as a backup. 


  • Vanta by default looks for the security label to pick up security issues:

  • If you are using the “security” tag for other uses or use other tags to track security tasks, you can customize the label in Vanta:

    1. Navigate to your Jira connection on the Integrations page and click on Manage > Task tracking labels

    3. After entering the labels you would like Vanta to track, hit Save
    4. Once complete, Vanta will pull in tasks with the configured security label from Jira.​
