Custom JIRA Connector

Hey guys,

 

In my company we can’t leverage the built in JIRA connector as our JIRA server is behind a firewall so i can’t authenticate my account.


I am however able to access the REST API to directly enter issues into JIRA (using postman for example..). Are there any examples in this community of people using a custom connecter to connector to connect to JIRA server REST API? I have heard success stories but struggling to get it set up myself..

 

Thanks!

Hi @crhext ,

 

You could take a try to achieve it use custom connector in Microsoft flow, looking forward to hear from you.

I am trying to do the same. I can get the API to create a JIRA ticket from POSTMAN using a cookie, not ideal as it doesn't persist. It also works from a .Net console app using basic auth, but I can't get that to work in the custom connector. I am currently looking at OAUTH2. I find the Atlassian documentation to be very hard to follow, might just be me though.

I was able to recreate the current connector using an HTTP Post to the REST API and basic authentication. If you're on JIRA server the method actually adds some flexibility that never existed in the old JIRA Server connector (adding components, access to custom fields, etc...).

That being said, you need to be comfortable with JSON to get it working. If you need to pull data from the response (issue key, etc...), you can use the Parse JSON action on the response body (which I use to insert the issue key into emails generated later in the flow).

Thank you guys. I got it to work pretty easily by importing a postman collection.
