Connectors: Jira

API Fortress can absolutely integrate with your JIRA setup. However, because not all JIRA boards are created equal, if you would like a connector set up for your specific JIRA board please out to support@apifortress.com

We will then gather the appropriate information and build you a custom connector for your JIRA setup.

note

This connector does not come pre-loaded out of the box for self-hosted/on-premises, and will need to be loaded separately. To learn how to load the connector into your API Fortress instance click here.

If you are using the SaaS version there is a simple JIRA connector provided, below are the steps to configure it:

  1. Go to the settings page
