Is it possible to establish an application link between JIRA and FishEye without using the GUI-wizard? E.g. configuring the link in a config file and add the application certificate manually (or something allong these lines)?
Why would I want to do this? Well first of all, I was just curious how the applications handle the application links :-) Secondly, it could be usefull if you want to automate the instalaltion and configuration process of Atlassian products, including set up application links.
Your answer is "it'd be tricky". So this means no?
"It'd be tricky" means, you'd have to write a plugin to call various methods on initialization. It wouldn't be hard, per se, if you're a plugin developer, but it seems not worth it to write a whole plugin rather than just enter the values in the UI.
The part that you can't script to populate the db is that there's a token generated that's unique, on both ends.
I've actually never looked into it, but just hunting around the code, I can give you a pointer. If you download the jira source, inside that directory is an applinks-plugin directory, which is a x-product plugin that registers app links. There's also an api in there that might offer a way to connect. Sorry, I know it's not that specific, but hopefully will point you in the right direction.
