We are using Filemaker databases for our company. Now we want to use JIRA for project management. Now the question is "is it possible to connect JIRA to an Filemaker database?"
you can access an Filemaker database with JDBC or ODBC. How do i have to configure JIRA to use this database?
There are two questions you might be asking here.
The first is "can you connect to a Filemaker database to get information out to work with in Jira" - the answer is yes, as you've got a jdbc connection (it's easier to use jdbc in Jira, as it's java based). There are some addons that provide database fields and extracts.
The second question, which I think is probably the one you mean, is "Can I use Filemaker as the underlying database for Jira". The answer is a hesitant yes. It supports jdbc, and that's what JIRA will use to connect. However, I'm not aware of anyone who has got this to work properly and it is NOT supported, so I can't recommend that you do it. Stick to one of the four that are supported.
