Is it really possible to start a bamboo plan using jira webhooks?


I read that we could start a bamboo plan from jira web hooks


I'm trying to start a bamboo plan using jira webhooks,

Here is my configuration :

I tried the following ( both with and without the issue details ):



I get the following error :

"Client error - 401 when posting to web hook"

In the logs I can see that jira automatically added a user_id and user_key to the URL , the user_id is indeed my ID BUT user_key is again my user_id

e.g :

401 when posting to web hook at 'http://server:8085/rest/api/latest/queue/IN-TEST?user_id=odedpr&user_key=odedpr

I also tried http://<yourbamboo host>/api/rest/updateAndBuild.action?buildKey=<projectkey>-<buildkey>

according to this

but that just got to a null resource.

Now .. I'm missing the authentication part .. where should I put the authentication ? or does jira suppose to send my jira credentials ?

Although this feature is a MAJOR one .. it really doesn't have enough documention .

I don't want to use an external plugin if this should work .. any help would be appriciated.
