Planning poker integration

Jira integration works in combination with Team O'clock web interface and/or a Slack or Microsoft Teams integration, and allows you to resolve ticket summaries by referencing them through ticket keys in planning poker sessions.

For example, you can estimate /planpoker ACME-344 in Slack or @Team O'clock pp ACME-344 in Microsoft Teams, and the integration will automatically extract the summary of the ticket and display a more verbose version with a link to the actual ticket in Jira.
