JIRA Connector

The JIRA connector retrieves data from a instance of Atlassian’s JIRA issue tracking system.

The JIRA connector uses the JIRA REST API to retrieve 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.
