How can one post JIRA reports in WordPress instance?

This is something that I have been trying to do for WordPress instance and thought might be a good idea to share.

I have been recently working on this and got it running:

1. Install RSS Widget in WordPress

2. Create a filter in JIRA and share

3. In the filter screen Export>RSS (issues) and right click to coyp URL

4. Go to WP RSS Widget and add the RSS URL and add also the username and password attributes who has read-only access to JIRA Project which should look like this:

https://jirainstance.com/sr/jira.issueviews:searchrequest-rss/XXXXX/SearchRequest-XXXXX.xml?tempMax=10&os_username=uxwpuser&os_password=uxwppassword

Where:

  • tempMax = n -> n is the total issues you want to display in the widget
  • &os_username=uxwpuser&os_password=uxwppassword is the section you need to add at the end of the URL’s
  • XXXXX is the filter ID in JIRA

If you have the JIRA instance running over https and having issues accessing JIRA from WP: do the following:

Add the following lines to http.php located in /var/www/wp-includes/

function wp_safe_remote_request( $url, $args = array() ) {

$args['reject_unsafe_urls'] = false;

$args['sslverify'] = false;

$http = _wp_http_get_object();

return $http->request( $url, $args );

Maybe this discussion provides also an appropriate solution?
