Jira Connector

Summary

The Jitterbit Harmony Jira Connector establishes access to Jira.

The Jira connector provides an interface for creating a Jira connection, the foundation used for generating instances of Jira activities. These activities, once configured, interact with Jira through the connection.

The Jira connector supports Jira Software Cloud, Jira Server, and Jira Data Center.

Note

The Jira connector supports standard custom fields. Advanced custom fields are not supported.

The Jira connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connectivity tab (see Connectors in Design Component Palette).

Connector Overview

This connector is used to first configure a Jira connection. Activity types associated with that connection are then used to create instances of activities that are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

Together, a specific Jira connection and its activities are referred to as a Jira endpoint:

Jira activity types

  • Search: Retrieves object data from a Jira project and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Issue: Creates, updates, or deletes an issue in a Jira project and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Create: Creates object data in a Jira project and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Update: Updates object data in a Jira project and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Search Dashboard: Retrieves dashboard data from Jira and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Delete: Deletes object data from Jira and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Transition: Retrieves or updates Jira issues and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Search Filter: Retrieves filter data from Jira and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

Note

Verbose logging can be enabled for this connector when it is used with a Private Agent. See Verbose Logging for Connectors for details.

Invoke verbose logging for this connector using this configuration entry:

<logger name="org.jitterbit.connector.verbose.logging.jira" level="DEBUG"/>

Prerequisites and Supported API Versions

The Jira connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

The Jira connector uses the Jira REST API v3 for the Jira Cloud instance type and Jira REST API v2 for the Jira On-premise instance type. Refer to the API documentation for information on the schema nodes and fields.

The Jira On-premise instance type has been verified to work with version 8.22.3 of Jira Server and Jira Data Center. (Other versions may also work but have not been tested.)
