Webservice to JIRA - how to?

Hi All,

there is a need in our JIRA to having a custom field which get its value from a different application via webservice. Hence we have never done it before could you please help how to do it?

For first it needs a custom field - I guess a scripted field??

And where could we implement the code which invite the webservice?

Thanks for your hints!

I wouldn't do this in a calculated field because you might actually want to store the value in database itself. That will reduce the number of webservice calls everytime you view the issue, index it etc.

It is better to create a new custom field type which invokes the webservice in the code and fetches you the values.

Hi Jobin,

thanks for the hint! Actually we stucked at this point: we don't know which type of custom field to use. Yes, I was not right: it's not a calculated field but a field which gets its value from a different system.

Thanks in advance,
