Need to integrate JIRA on Cloud with BIRT BI tool.

Hi All,


We need to integrate our JIRA on Cloud system with BIRT BI tool. I have tried to do so by using different options available at BIRT's end but have not been successful. Is there anything available with JIRA/Altassian that can help in this case.


Thanks in advance

Whatever reporting tool you want to use, it will have to read JIRA's data over REST.  You won't get access to the database or other ways to access your data.


Thanks for the response. I have tried with some open source BI like BIRT but have been unsuccessful. Using REST have not been able to get the data in the format required. I believe it should be handled at BI tool end only. Will try their. Thanks a lot.




Birt supports REST for reporting as well as whatever data that you can read with Java. It requires some scripting of course, but it is pretty easy: Briefly, you have to create a Scripted Data Source and then fetch the JIRA data in JSON format via the Atlassian's REST Java Client or the Kinto Soft's REST Driver and create a Data Set for those JIRA data,. From this stage, there are not any difference to make BIrt reports by using REST or SQL.

If you want to read further details about how use JIRA REST services to create Birt reports, read please the documentation of the Birt Reports for JIRA add-on. It shows step by step how to achieve it from the scratch.


Hope this helps,
