Ward Schwillens Aug 24, 2018

I'm getting confused here. Is it possible to connect Power-BI to Jira (on premise) Server or is it not? Basic Authentication and HTTPS are enabled.

Hello @Ward Schwillens

If both are reachable via the network, then I don't see any issue in connecting both. Jira is supported out of the box by power BI

It's for cloud only and we are talking about on-prem

Hello - 

I am attempting to get my Jira data connected to PowerBi. I am confused about the above link because it seems as though it is linking Jira with a browser based version of PowerBi.

I have the PowerBi client installed on my computer and would like to get my Jira data there. Does anyone have any suggestions?

You can use the desktop app.

Hi Avinash - 

Thanks for the response. Maybe I am missing something, but I do have the PowerBi desktop app. I use it for various things. I am just trying to figure out how to link my Jira data to it.

Any suggestions?

Once you download the content pack, when you executed you should be able to configure it point to your jira endpoint or even a jql filter through the api.

I do have PowerBi desktop installed on my computer and I use it for other things. As for linking my JIRA data to PowerBi I am confused. The initial link at the beginning of this thread doesn't appear to link JIRA data onto PowerBi desktop.

I must be missing something.

Hi Mike,

You have to use the powerbi file in this link:

Hello Frederico, I opened the template in PowerBI Desktop and I'm able to fill in the credentials, using basic authentication with the same credentials as I normally use. We have Jira Server but it's accessible from the outside. When I have entered all data, PowerBI seems to be making a connection, but eventually I get the error 

OLE DB or ODBC error: [DataSource.Error] Web.Contents failed to get contents from 'https://myurl:8443/rest/api/2/search?maxResults=500&startAt=0' (500): 

Any idea how I can solve this?
