Applink to my own custom application

I'm looking for a solution to get notifications to my custom application from JIRA (on demand and on premise) about issues status changes.

I found some products that integrated by applink :

And they get the status updates by that.

I can't find any documentation about how I can create a custom product that could be integrated using applinks.

All I find is docs about how to set an applink, but nothing about how to implement a product that could be integrated with that (features, APIs...).

Can someone direct me to any doc or references? or any tip about it.

I know that I could use Webhooks for my needs, I just want to compare all my options.

If you want to link your own systems with JIRA then would Atlassian Connect (our Cloud add-on / integration framework) be a good fit for you?

Hi, Can I use the same add-on for both On Demand and On Premise JIRA instances?



If you mean "Can I install the same add-on into both my Cloud environment and Server environments?" then the answer is no.

But there is no reason that you could not write a single service that appears as an Atlassian Connect add-on (via a descriptor) and also talks to your Server instance.

You can join the two through a single service.


Hi, Thank you for your answers!

I not sure I follow. Is that what do you think I should do:

  1. Create a descriptor file that calls my custom server (using webHooks)
  2. Manually upload the descriptor file for server environments.
  3. Upload the descriptor file to marketplace and use the add-on for cloud environments.

    I'm not sure what do you mean by a single service.
    Edit: I just tried to upload the descriptor to my server environment and if failed.
    Could you expand a bit on your solution? What do you mean in a single service that appears as add-on? and how do I use it in server envs? any docs about it?


This is roughly what I had in mind:
