If you want to store values into JIRA database then you need to use Active Objects.

If it is you own database - then use some JDBC driver.

Hi Vasiliy Zverev,

Thanks for your response!

I want to implement using javascript. Could you please let me know that the how to get values from my database and put them in to JIRA database.

I am using below module

 

"modules":  {

"jiraIssueFields": [
{
"key" : "team-issue-field",
"name" : {
"value" : "Designs"
},
"description" : {
"value" : "Choose a Design"
},
"type": "single_select",
"extractions": [{
"path": "category",
"type": "string",
"name": "category"
}]
}
]

}

I have no idea where to write script to get the values from my database and put them in to JIRA DB.

Finally the values should be listed under custom field(Designs).

Thanks in Advance! 

If you want to get values from your own DB with JavaScript you need some web service with REST client to do this.

That is fine. But, As I mentioned in above module, where I need to write script. If we see below module, there is an option say URL where we can call html file.

"generalPages": [
         {
             "key""activity",
             "location""system.top.navigation.bar",
             "name": {
                 "value""Activity"
             },
             "URL""/index.html",
             "conditions": [{
                 "condition""user_is_logged_in"
             }]
         }
}

 But in 'JiraIssueFields' there is no option to call any other files like HTML and JS. So, Could you please tell me where I have to write code and how to call that from 'JiraIssueFields' module.

Thanks in Advance!
