Integration of Testlink with JIRA

I am trying to link Test link with JIRA, with my cloud JIRA instance. I configured the Issue Tracker Management with the JIRA SOAP interface.

But when I try to establish a connection it says : 

SOAP Fault: (code: WSDL, string: SOAP-ERROR: Parsing WSDL: Couldn't load from '' : failed to load external entity "" )

I tried to confirm whether the wsdl is working correctly or not , using SOAP UI, and it gave me an error which says :

        Error loading []: org.apache.xmlbeans.XmlException: org.apache.xmlbeans.XmlException: error: does not close tag 

What should I do to correct this.


I also used the REST interface (since Test Link allows that), but the connection is still not getting established.

My Test Link version is 1.9.14

My JIRA version is JIRA v7.1.0-OD-02-030

JIRA 7 does not have a SOAP interface, it went away in 6.something (it's been deprecated for years)

You need to use REST, but we can't really help you with your issue there because "the connection is not established" tells us nothing more than "It is not working"

In addition to the speedy response from @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] you can read the reasons for the deprecation of SOAP at
