Jira connector and actionedit

The Jira connector uses the REST API v2 to create Jira issues.

Create connectors in Kibanaedit

You can create connectors in Stack Management > Connectors or as needed when you’re creating a rule. For example:

Jira connector
Connector configurationedit

Jira connectors have the following configuration properties:

The name of the connector.
Jira instance URL.
Project key
Jira project key.
The account email for HTTP Basic authentication.
API token
Jira API authentication token for HTTP Basic authentication.

Create preconfigured connectorsedit

If you are running Kibana on-prem, you can define connectors by adding xpack.actions.preconfigured settings to your kibana.yml file. For example:

    name: preconfigured-jira-connector-type
    actionTypeId: .jira
      apiUrl: https://elastic.atlassian.net
      projectKey: ES
      email: testuser
      apiToken: tokenkeystorevalue

Config defines information for the connector type.

An address that corresponds to URL.
A key that corresponds to Project Key.

Secrets defines sensitive information for the connector type.

A string that corresponds to Email.
A string that corresponds to API Token. Should be stored in the Kibana keystore.

Test connectorsedit

You can test connectors with the run connector API or as you’re creating or editing the connector in Kibana. For example:

Jira params test

Jira actions have the following configuration properties.

Issue type
The type of the issue.
The priority of the incident.
The labels for the incident.
A title for the issue, used for searching the contents of the knowledge base.
The details about the incident.
The ID or key of the parent issue. Only for Subtask issue types.
Additional comments
Additional information for the client, such as how to troubleshoot the issue.

Connector networking configurationedit

Use the Action configuration settings to customize connector networking configurations, such as proxies, certificates, or TLS settings. You can set configurations that apply to all your connectors or use xpack.actions.customHostSettings to set per-host configurations.

Configure Jiraedit

Jira offers free Instances, which you can use to test incidents.
