JIRA is a powerful issues and project tracker used by a lot of agile teams. Buddybuild can be configured to automatically open a JIRA issue for each piece of feedback and crash report you receive on your app.
How to grant permissions for the API?
You can read more about it here: OAuth security for application links
Start by launching the buddybuild dashboard and clicking on App Settings.
In the left navigation, select Integrations, then JIRA Issues.
Enter your JIRA base URL in the specified field. Take note of your Consumer key, Public key and Consumer callback URL, as you’ll need it for the next step.
Edit your JIRA Application Configuration
Open JIRA in a new tab. Click on the Settings icon and select Applications.
Create a New Application Link
In the left navigation, click on Application links. Next, copy the dashboard URL below into the Application URL field and click on Create New Link.
What if I have multiple JIRA integrations with buddybuild?
You can append your app id to the URL, e.g.:
Ignore the warning and click Continue.
Enter App Name and Continue
Use buddybuild as the Application Name. A new Application Link will be created.
Edit the Application Link
Edit the newly created application link.
Configure the Incoming Authentication
Navigate to the Incoming Authentication Section.
Paste in your Keys and CallbackURL
Buddybuild will generate your Public Key, your Consumer Key and the Consumer callback URL. Navigate to buddybuild, copy the above items from the JIRA Issues settings page and paste them into your JIRA Application.
Use buddybuild as the consumer name.
Navigate back to buddybuild and hit Connect
Now that you have JIRA configured, head back over to buddybuild and click on Connect JIRA account.
Authorize buddybuild to connect to your JIRA
Click on the Allow button.
Select your JIRA Project and Issue Type
Next, configure JIRA for Feedback and Crash Reports. You can automatically create issues, and set the default project, type and reporter for new issues.
Permission to modify reporter
By default, users without administrator privileges cannot modify the reporter when creating an issue. If you want to use another reporter, please make sure that the JIRA account you used on Buddybuild has the permission to do so — if not, you can let the JIRA board administrator set the permission for you in project settings.
That’s it! Buddybuild is now connected to your JIRA. We will automatically create an issue for every piece of feedback you receive.
