Atlassian Jira Connector

Index projects, issues, and comments in Jira.

The Atlassian Jira connector indexes projects, issues, and comments across your Jira instance.

The connector supports Atlassian Jira Cloud.

Installing the Jira App Descriptor

In order to target your specific Atolio deployment, the Atlassian Jira connector requires a private listing to be installed instead of the Atlassian marketplace version, as explained here. This can be disabled again after the connect app is installed.

To start, within your Jira instance:

  1. Navigate to the application management page by clicking Apps -> Manage your apps.
  2. Click Settings at the bottom, then enable private listings and development mode before clicking Apply.
  1. The Upload app link will now be enabled.
  1. Specify the URL provided by your Deployment Engineer. It will be similar to the following with your chosen DNS name:
  • Note: if you have multiple Jira instances, please make sure to provide the correct instance name in the URL above (i.e. default in the example).

Once the Atolio Connect app has been installed, the configuration will be stored securely in your Atolio deployment. You can now disable the development mode and private listings as needed.

(Optional) Scope Jira indexing

If you want fine-grained control over which Jira projects should be indexed, provide a list of inclusions or exclusions to your Deployment Engineer: they can use the includes or excludes feature in Atolio configuration to control the relevant projects that should be indexed.
