How to enable integration with OpsGenie?

I had to install OpsGenie Edge Connector on our test Jira server but when I am trying to submit alert on OpsGenie side, I can't get Jira SD to make ticket from that alert. Communication works from OpsGenie (OG) to Jira SD server. This is part of the output.txt file:
WARNING:root:[createIssue] Could not execute at Jira Service Desk; response: b'{"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"components":"Component/s is required."}}' status code: 400
In the settings for that project there are fields which are needed for creation of the ticket. "Component/s" is there as hidden. I was not able to remove it completely. When I made it blank - didn't help
I tried to define "Component/s" on OG side but no success as well. I am still getting above warning.
Can you please help me get thru that error message so Jira SD could create tickets based on OG alerts?

Hi @pavol_cvincek01 !


If the Jira project and issue type you are sending alerts to have (non-standard) required fields (like a component), there are two main options for getting them filled:


  1. Use Manual Issue Creation for Jira Software. This flow will essentially bring up the same Create Issue modal from Jira, including custom fields. The downside of this option is it isn't automated; a user would have to click the "Create Issue" button in an alert. 2020-07-02_11-50-38_01.png
  2. Customize the OEC script to include component in the createIssue action:

    This would end up looking something like this:
     content_params = {
    "fields": {
    "project": {
    "key": project_key
    "issuetype": {
    "name": issue_type_name
    "summary": queue_message.get("summary"),
    "description": queue_message.get("description"),
    "labels": [toLabel.replace("\\s", "")],
    "components": [{
    "id": component

Hope this helps!
