Am wondering if anyone has publishes/synched requirements from HP QC to Jira before testing starts (before defects logged)?

I'd like to be able to send the requirements from QC into Jira so the dev team codes against them vs entering jira tickets that may or may not have the correct requirement info.

I saw the JaM integration tool but am unclear if you can publish the requirements before creating defects or not. Any experience in doing so?
