Overview of the integration

Jira is a software developed by Atlassian that enables bug and incident tracking and agile project management.

This integration enables you to perform actions in both Service Manager and Jira using Zapier. You can do this in two ways.

  • Perform actions in Jira from a Service Manager workflow/business rule. Open url.png See Integration Process 1.

    example  In Service Manager, creation of an incident via a standard ticket management workflow ==>  Creation of the corresponding incident in Jira

  • Perform actions in Service Manager from Jira. Open url.png See Integration Process 2.

    example  In Jira, modification of a ticket  ==>  Modification of the corresponding ticket in Service Manager

Integration process 1: From Service Manager to Jira

Data feed

To perform actions in Jira from a Service Manager workflow/business rule, you must use a zap with a Zapier REST action.

Step-by-Step Integration Process

   Open url.png See Zapier integration for the detailed process.

Step 1: Initialize the zap in Zapier.

1. Click Make a Zap.

2. Name the new zap.
 

Step 2: In Zapier, configure the Service Manager trigger event.

2.1: In Zapier, initialize the configuration in the pane called Trigger / 1. Set up this step.

1. In the Choose App step, click the Webhooks Webhooks icon.png icon.

2. In the Choose Trigger step, select the option called Catch Hook.

3. Click Save + Continue.
The webhook URL is provided by Zapier.
         example  https://hooks.zapier.com/hooks/catch/799810/mtmjbz/
 

2.2: In Service Manager, create a Zapier REST action.

       Open url.png See How to define a new resource and associate it with a REST action.

1. Create a connection and a resource for the Zapier service.

  • Select Administration > REST > Services in the menu.
  • Create a connection to the Zapier service.
  • Create a resource associated with the Zapier service.

2. Add a REST action using the resource you previously created.

  • Go to the workflow graphic editor and open the *workflow or business rule you want.
  • Click and drag the new resource from the REST Actions category to the graphic editor.

3. Run the new Zapier REST action by starting the workflow/business rule.
 

2.3: In Zapier, finalize the configuration of the Service Manager trigger event.

1. In Service Manager, run the process you created in step 2.2.
The Zapier webhook is initialized when you run the Zapier REST action.

2. In Zapier, click OK, I did this (Test this Step).
The $ProductName_ev_itsm{{/velocity}} trigger event is configured in Zapier.

 

Step 3: In Zapier, configure the action to be performed in Jira.

1. In the Choose App step in the pane called Action / 2. Set up this step, click the Jira Jira Software icon.png icon.

2. In the Choose Action step, select the action to be performed in Jira.

3. In the Choose Account step, select or create an account.

4. In the Set Up Template step, configure the options.

Note: To use Service Manager field values such as the rfc_number or description, and propagate them in Jira, you must use the Zapier webhook at least once. To do this, run the Zapier REST action via a Service Manager process.

 

Step 4: Enable the zap in Zapier.

1. Click Finish.

2. Enable the new zap using Your Zap is on.
