Jira Align to Power BI connection

How do I connect Jira Align with PowerBI. I tried using the JA Rest Api but failing during authentication. Has anyone integrated PowerBI and Jira Align before? If yes, Can you provide insights on authentication?

Hello Raja!

There's no way to connect directly to the cloud Jira Align database, but it's possible via Enterprise Insights (formerly Leo BI). 

Enterprise Insights (EI) is an add-on service to Jira Align which enables access to a relational view of the customer’s data. The EI database is effectively a data mart for Jira Align.

You can ask your TAM or EA for more details about this add-on.


If you already have Enterprise Insights, you can follow the guide below for SQL users' login (For Azure AD, you should use a different authentication type).

If you are going to use PowerBI for reporting, you should use the Enterprise Insights database. The Rest APIs aren't appropriate for the kind of reporting typically done through PowerBI or other reporting tools.

You can see this article here about connecting PowerBI to Enterprise Insights.
