If someone could give me some hints, I would be very appreciated. Thanks.
Well, it is going to be a push or pull.
You can write a JIRA plugin that monitors for changes and pull it when the json file is generated but this may not be desired as you have to keep polling at regular intervals.
A better option might be to use a JIRA REST API which can then be invoked by your tool as soon as the json file is generated. You might have to create a custom REST end point in JIRA, using the rest plugin module, if you can't use any of the existing APIs.
Thank you very much for taking your time and answer my question.
My JIRA plugin already has a REST Endpoint Module. What I don't know is, how could I build up kind of connection or invoking, so that my external tool can push this json file to my JIRA plugin?
Do you mean I should define a push function in my external tool in C# and also define a get function in my JIRA plugin REST Endpoint module? Is that the right way? Thanks.
Thanks for your answer. I will try to do it like this, still not sure if it will work. Define a GET end point in JIRA plugin I know how to do it, but I just wonder how this post function in my external tool written in C# should be defined.
Will this post function in C# just a normal function or what else?
Do you mean the function in C# should call the GET end point of JIRA plugin?
