Qlik JIRA Web Connector

I am now using the Qlik JIRA Web Connector for the first time. I have a problem with the authentication and I thought you may help me to solve this issue.

In the Tables option, I am selecting the CanAuthenticate table, and in the Parameters section I just add the JIRA base URL (https://jira.host/jira), my JIRA ussername and my JIRA password. After that, I click on Save Inputs & Run Table and I get the following error:

authenticated: false

message "Failed on attemp 1 to GET (Error in remote server: (401) Non-authorized.)

Do you know how can I solve this problem?

I guess the Qlik JIRA connector is the recommended option to connect to JIRA. Using the general REST connector available in Qlik Sense to connect to JIRA is even more complicated, right?

Thank you in advance.

Re: Qlik JIRA Web Connector

Hi,

Have you purchased, or obtained a free trial, for the QWC JIRA connector? This is one of the premium connectors and needs a licence to function.

It is possible to connect using the REST connector, but as you suggest this is quite a bit more involved. The Qlik Web Connectors take care of all of the authentication. Doing this using REST calls and OAuth takes time, but you may find someone on the community who has done this and is willing to share the code.

Re: Qlik JIRA Web Connector

Off topic, but you messaged me directly, but I am presently unable to message back. Thought this would be the best way to get a response to you.

It's true that some of the functionality of GeoAnalytics is included in Qlik Sense, but it is not the case that all of the functionality is included for free. The bits which are included for free are in the main Sense installer - you don't need to install anything else. Most functionality of plotting data on maps is included, anything around GeoCoding or reverse GeoCoding is not. I've not found a definitive document on what is included or not though.

I see that you have QWC installed now, and have asked about Sense Desktop on another thread.

Thank you.

Yes, I have a temporary license for Qlik Web Connectors. So far, we have some issues with JIRA authentication in Qlik JIRA Connector. Hopefully, we will solve these problems soon. Thanks again.
