what are the ways to integrate a third party application with Jira?

By integration I mean I just to want some changes to happen in my application whenever an issue isupdated(status changed is the one I am looking for)

One way to do is to use JIRA Listeners but I have to write the code and place the jar,the other way is to poll the particular issue periodically using rest api and get the updated information

Is there any other way to do this

what I exactly want is whenever the status of a particular issue is updated,I want the same to get notified to my third party application

Will it be possible to do the same other than the methods mentioned by me?

can some body please help me on this?

As you have already discovered there are a number of different ways and the right solution will depend on what other system you are trying to integrate with.

  1. Write bespoke code which uses the APIs of both systems identifying changes on either side and cross populating.
  2. Use an existing plug-in which integrates with the second system (eg https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.stiltsoft.jira.teamcity/server/overview which integrates JIRA with TeamCity
  3. Use a full bi-directional integration tool such as TaskTop Synce (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.tasktop.sync/server/overview)
  4. If second system is capable of receiving/sending emails then a combination of emails sent by events and an email listener may suffice for capturing a commentary.





Phill & Rahul, you can also use another popular out of the box plugin "https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.opshub.product.oim/cloud/overview " that can solve your problem by integrating third party tools to JIRA.

As Phill and Sandeep suggested, you can use on of the integration solutions out threre. ConnectAll is another one.

IMO, it depends up on your thrid party application. If it is a custom one, you can use frameworks like ConnectAll to quickly build a connector. If not, you can use an existing connector, Building something from scratch is definitely possible for light weight solutions but will involve lot of work if you are looking for an enterprise solution.
