While you’re likely aware of our Atlassian suite of cloud products integrated with Microsoft Teams, such as Jira Cloud, Bitbucket Cloud, Confluence Cloud. Last September we heard your requests at the Atlassian European Summit for Server Integration and today we are thrilled to announce that we will be enhancing our suite of DevOps integrations with the release of V1 of Jira Server integration.
Connector for Jira Server
The Jira Server connector uses built-in Webhooks functionality of Jira Server that doesn’t require third party Jira app installation. It can be easily configured by your Jira Server admin.
Here are the Jira Server Connector events that you’ll receive notifications for:
- Issue Created
- Issue Updated
Once the event is triggered, the Jira connector will submit the card with the following issue details:
- Clickable Issue summary
- Short description of the event
- Issue type
There are also JQL filters available that allow our customers to submit notifications only for specific Jira projects or specific issues.
How to get started
Install the Jira Server from Microsoft Teams app store. Use the instructions and the connector URL provided on the connector configuration page. To set up a Webhook on your Jira Server you will need the Jira Server admin rights. If you don’t have the admin rights, you will need to contact your IT department to help you with Webhook installation. Admin has to configure firewall to allow outgoing traffic from Jira Server instance to Teams Connector app i.e. specifically need to add the address record of ‘connectors.msteams-atlassian.com’ to any sort of whitelist that controls network egress traffic.
