Is there a way to send requests to Jira in order to trigger an event? For instance, can I send some sort of request to my Jira server to close or update a ticket from say, a system producing automated builds in order to update bug tickets as "Ready to Test" from "In Dev" using a Kanban board?
Yes, you can use plain http(s) posts with curl, wget and so on.
You will probably find it a lot easier to use the Jira CLI ( https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JCLI/JIRA+Command+Line+Interface ) or the REST interface https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+REST+APIs
