I have tried searching the Community (and Google) for this exact scenario, but have come up blank.
Illustrating an example (names changed for security): One of our OpsGenie alerts periodically comes in titled (Alias), "Transfer failed". We want OpsGenie/Jira Software to automatically create an Issue ticket in our "Tech Support" (TS) Project, when this alert is created in OpsGenie.
As far as I can tell, you can only configure this from OpsGenie > Settings > INTEGRATIONS > Configured integrations > Jira Service Management > Settings > For other Opsgenie alerts:
Is there no other way to automatically create issues from an OpsGenie Alert?
PS: We're already aware you can link issues to an Opsgenie Incident
Hi @Elisa Escapa ,
That is correct - the only way to create Jira issues from Opsgenie alerts is through the For other Opsgenie alerts: section within the integration.
Based on the screenshot you shared above, any alert that contained one of those conditions in the alias field of an alert would trigger the integration, and create in issue in the configured Jira project under these settings:
^ That's where you'd configure Issue Type; Ticket, and Project Key; TS.
Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any additional questions.
Hi Nick, thank you so much for confirming!
If that's the case, then it sounds like there isn't a way to take this further and be able to map alert properties into issue fields? For example, say we had a custom field in Jira Software called Issue Category, and I want its value to be "Alerts: Transfer Failure" when the OG alert it was created from includes the words "Transfers failed" in that specific order.
I've heard about OEC but not entirely sure whether that is a way to work around this?
OEC is definitely what we suggest for working around this!
You would install the OEC service on a server, and it will sit in the middle of Opsgenie and Jira. Opsgenie alerts would send to OEC, which will then execute a script to create Jira issues. You can modify the OEC script to customize things such as configure it to set an Opsgenie alert field as a required custom field in Jira (such as the Issue Category).
Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any other questions.
EDIT: I should have mentioned this as well, but Opsgenie has a new Jira and JSM Integration Framework that offers the option to map custom required fields without using OEC! It's still in beta so if you'd be interested in testing, please open a ticket with Opsgenie support here: https://support.atlassian.com/opsgenie/
In the past, managing IT infrastructure was a hard job. It required a lot of manual effort and it was hard to keep track of all the necessary information (monitoring, scalability etc). Thankfully, as...
