Create issue based on json object received via post

Is there a way to automatically create issues in jira by having another service(stackdriver) post a json object to jira?

I really want to avoid creating a proxy server that translates the stackdriver object into a jira api call.

Thanks for the quick answer!

I understand that the jira REST api exists for this exact use case. However my issue is that I don't want the maintenace overhead of supporting an app/server that translates a json post of this form:








"summary":"CPU (agent) for webserver-85 is above the threshold of 1% with a value of 28.5%",





To a jira issue form like this:


"fields": {



"id": "10000"


"summary": "No REST for the Wicked.",

"description": "Creating of an issue using ids for projects and issue types using the REST API",

"issuetype": {

"id": "3"




Basically, can you suggest a plugin or other means to accomplish this on a hosted jira instance?

Pretty new to this so I appreciate your patience.
