Anyone know what the new "Other Links" tab on development info is for?

Anyone know what this is for? Or what it's going to be for?

Screenshot 2021-04-27 111134.png

Interested as currently looking into what other data we could spit into JIRA, stuff like number of failed e2e tests for example.

Cheers!

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

The “Other links” tab shows links from third parties to link dev information to Jira issues. 

Jira apps that integrate with third-party tools can choose to send links to Jira that show information that is connected to the given Jira issue, for example, a link to the result page of a security scan on a pull request that is connected to the Jira issue.  

Kind regards,
Angélica

Hi Angélica,

Thanks for the reply, I thought that might be the case, is there any documentation on how to get stuff reading into this? 

As an example -

We're integrated with Jenkins and Bitbucket currently so our team can see deployment and build information on their issues which is great, we have a couple of security scanning tools running via jenkins on our deployment pipelines such as SonarQube and AquaSec.

 

We already get a report in Jenkins for the AquaSec scans but I'm wondering if it's possible to get this information or a link to the successful scan on the other links tab.

 

Another example would be, we run E2E tests as part of our pipelines using Cypress, is it possible to get this information onto that tab as well?

 

Many thanks :)

Andy

Hi Andy,

I didn’t find any public documentation about this feature yet.

I escalated your case to the team responsible for that and once I have an update, I’ll share it here.

Kind regards,

Hi, 

I'm from the team supporting the Jenkins and GitHub integrations with Jira.

The "Other Links" feature is sparsely used, at the moment. I actually don't know of any tools that are already sending "Other Links" into Jira. 

Having said that, we're currently looking into how we can improve the Jenkins integration and the idea of sending SonarQube and AquaSec results as such a link is great! I'll add this to our backlog of ideas and we'll explore that! 

I'll leave a link to this thread in our ticket so we'll comment here with any progress we make.

Cheers,

Tom

Hi

Angélica, Tom,

Thanks for the reply :)

That's great, I think it is possible via Jenkin's rest API to grab the results and stuff associated with a build so would be cool to explore for sure and really useful!

We use a whole host of tools which spit out reports into our Jenkins pipelines so being able to see these directly in JIRA would be great and even better if we could trigger automation say off a failed test result ;) 

Many thanks,

Andy

@Tom Hombergs can i than also suggest to use this tab for firebase preview links? :) 

 

In the PR it generates the below note. Would be great to add that preview-URL in the other links tab too.
