How to connect Jira(cloud) with AWS (lambda/sqs)

I'm trying to create some automation between Jira(cloud) and AWS and I can't seem to find a connector on marketplace that works with Jira cloud.

Would anybody be able to point me in the right direction? or maybe suggest a different method.


The automation use case is, a Jira ticket is assigned to a different user or some other condition happens. Jira then takes some information from the ticket and invokes an AWS lambda function. 

Currently I have a container running that polls Jira's API for a certain condition to happen and then invokes the AWS lambda function but I am looking for a better solution.

I know that this is a very old post but maybe this will help others and help me know if there's a better way.
What I've done is-

  • Jira field changes
  • Jira automation parses and pulls data from various fields and sends a post request to an AWS API gateway. (Jira key, etc.)
  • The AWS Gateway invokes a lambda function which verifies and checks the data received. It then invokes an additional lambda function to process the data.
  • The second lambda function then writes back to the Jira ticket.

It's worked decent for me but a direct integration or less complex way to handle this would be nice, especially if you could encrypt or hide the API key that Jira uses to send to the AWS Gateway.
