JIRA Connector and Datasource Configuration

The JIRA connector retrieves data from a instance of Atlassian’s JIRA issue tracking system. It uses the JIRA REST API to retrieves the following JIRA elements:

  • Projects

  • Issues

  • Comments

  • Worklogs

  • Attachments

JIRA access to projects and issues may be restricted to certain users. Access of restricted information requires a JIRA username and password.

The JIRA connector first requests a list of all projects, and for each project, if finds all issues. For each issue, the information on summary, priority, assignee, etc. is retrieved. Worklogs, comments, and attachments are treated as new entries (issue links) and thus are indexed as a new document, not as a component of the issue itself.

Configuration

Tip
When entering configuration values in the UI, use unescaped characters, such as \t for the tab character. When entering configuration values in the API, use escaped characters, such as \\t for the tab character.
