Jira Integration

Rapticore Integrates with the customer’s JIRA instance using an API Token.

📘

Rapticore only integrates with Jira on Atlassian’s Cloud.

For more information, refer to our Jira integration reference.

Setup

Setup involves:

  1. Creating an API Token in Jira
  2. Configuring Rapticore to integrate with Jira
  3. Selecting Jira projects to use in Rapticore

Jira privileges

The user associated with the API Token should have access to Jira projects where the customer wants backlog items created.

📘

As a best practice, Rapticore recommends that the integration user is tied to a service user.

Rapticore privileges

You must have an Admin role to configure Gitlab integrations in Rapticore.

Creating an API Token

  1. Login to Atlassian Cloud with the user credentials
  2. Navigate to the API Token creation section of your account security settings https://id.atlassian.com/manage-profile/security/api-tokens

If you lose the API token simply follow the steps to re-create a new one.
