How to exchange data between Jira and an other app?

Hi everybody,

My customer would like to know wether it is possible to call a webservice  at JIRA ticket update to insert a new record in a target application. This record properties would be JIRA issue custom fields values.
Once this record would be created, its ID value would be sent back to the JIRA issue and recorded in a custom field.

Thanks 4 your help.

Yes it's possible and there are a couple of ways to do this. You can:

  • Utilize the JIRA Webhooks or create your own
  • Create post-functions that will do what you want (like the JIRA ScriptRunner)
  • JIRA Event Listeners that executes internal script/code
