Jira connector to on prem server

Hey comrades,

 

Any help here is appreciated.

 

I have Jira Server. From what I've heard, there is no longer any official support to create API tokens within Jira. I am using a 3rd party plugin to generate tokens for user accounts. (see screenshot)

 

 Using this token I was able to make a connection to Jira in Flow. That worked perfectly fine for a single day. Now no matter what I try, the connection won't establish either with the same credentials or new ones. What could possibly be causing this?

 

Thanks,

 

Ian

Keep seeing in other posts that connections to on prem servers are no longer supported but I still don't understand how that very first day everything worked flawlessly. Clearly it can work.

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).

 

The Server API documentation can be found here: https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/REST/8.8.1/#api/2/issue-getIssue

Hi,

 

Thank you for this tip! Do you mind sharing your configuration and how you made it work with the HTTP post connector?

I assumed in order to query for every new ticket that is submitted to a project I would need to use a GET request?

 

Cheers,

Hello @IanNev ,

Did you resolve your problem ? 

 

I need to interact with a Jira Server (8.17) via Power Automate. To be honest, I'm a little lost and I don't know what to do. Do I need to use the connector "Jira" or to use a connector "HTTP Request" ? I prefer to ask before to buy the plugin "API Token" 🙂

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Kr,
