Jira - How to get started with Jira in Automations

This article gives an overview of the available blocks in the Jira connector in Qlik Application Automation. It will also go over some basic examples of retrieving issues by a specified project and creating an issue within a Jira account.

This connector supports CRUD operations(read, create, update, delete) for the following modules in Jira:

  • issues
  • comments
  • projects

There are also a few generic blocks that could help to cover the other modules :

  • Raw API List Request
  • Raw API Get Request
  • Raw API Create Request
  • Raw API Update Request
  • Raw API Delete Request

Authentication for this connector is based on the oAuth2 Protocol.

Let's now go over a few basic examples of how to use the Jira connector:

1. How to list issues from a specific project from a Jira account

  1. Create an automation;
  2. From the left menu, select the Jira connector;

  8. Run the automation. This will output a paginated list of issues available in the specified project.

2. To create a new issue:

  1. The first two steps are similar as before;
  2. Use the 'Search for blocks' input to search for the "Create issue' block;
  3. Drag and drop the block into the automation and link it to the start block;
