Important

This guide walks you through how to set up Jira Software Cloud if you have already connected with Jira Cloud, Jira Core Cloud, Jira Service Desk Cloud or Confluence Cloud.

If you have not already connected with any of those apps, please see: Jira Software Cloud as your first Atlassian integration.

Jira's Guide: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/rest/v3/
Authorization protocol: OAuth 2.0

1. Add the Jira Software Cloud connector in the Xkit platform.

  • In the Xkit platform, click "New connector" in the sidebar or at the bottom of the "Connectors" screen.
  • Click "Jira Software Cloud".
  • At this point, pause on the Xkit setup and instead continue to the next step to set up the connection on Jira's side. You'll return to the Xkit screen shortly.

2. Add the Jira platform REST API if it has not yet been enabled.

  • In a separate window, sign in to your Jira/Atlassian account.
  • Visit this link: https://developer.atlassian.com/apps and click your app.
  • If you have already enabled the "Jira platform REST API", you will see it in the sidebar. Click this.
  • If you have not yet enabled the "Jira platform REST API", click the "+ Add" in the sidebar and then click "Add" under "Jira platform REST API". At this point you should see it appear in the sidebar. Click this.

3. Set or update the permissions for the Jira platform REST API.

  • Click "Add" next to any permissions required for this integration (additional details about the scopes are available in the OAuth2 section of this page).

4. Complete the Xkit connection setup.

  • Back in the Xkit platform, fill out the Catalog Settings page and click "Save".
  • On the next page, select the same permissions/scopes you entered into Jira Software Cloud and click "Save".

You've now successfully connected Jira Software Cloud with Xkit!
