I can no longer create new connection for my JIRA Server

We used to create MS Flow connetion to JIRA Server (v8.0.2) using username/password. Is there any alternative now as MS Flow deprecated the feature and only allow using API token.

 

Ps. I cannot find a way to generate API token for JIRA Server v8.0.2. If there is any other method, please let us know.

Hi @kittituchm ,

 

I afraid that you could only generate API token for JIRA if you want to create a connection to JIRA connector in microsoft flow.

Only OAuth token is mentioned in the JIRA Server online document. Do you have any source for generating API token on JIRA Server - tutorial, example, guide.

 

Thanks @v-alzhan-msft 

Hello @kittituchm 

 

Have you finally solved the problem? Because i have same problem,  i need to connect a jira server and in addition they use the authentication saml, so if you knows any something  let me know please!

 

Thanks!

My interim is to use Zapier.

 

MS Flow sends email with specific address and format that Zapier can read as Key-Value and start an event.

 

Then, in the Zapier flow use the key-value pairs to create JIRA Issue on JIRA Server.

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
