How do I connect Jira to Fitnesse?

I would like to connect Jira to Fitnesse, which is hosted on another server. I've tried looking into documentation and have found little of help. I'm new to both of these 2 software, so I'm still learning about both Jira and Fitnesse. Is there any way to automate the execution of tests on a server separated from Jira?

It very much depends on what you want to do - you need to be specific about "automate the execution of tests" - what runs them? What does "automate" mean? What triggers them? If you're driving things from Jira, you probably want to use webhooks or scripts to tell Fitnesse to do things (over whatever external interfaces it provides). If you want fitnesse to do stuff in Jira, you should be looking at doing it over Jira's REST interface

By automate, I mean that I'd like to press something within Jira's UI to run Test A, which runs a test or suite of tests on the Fitnesse server. I'm not sure if there's any other details you want in regards to this question. Sorry if I'm still being a bit vague, I'm trying my best to get details on what type of tests are within Fitnesse and how we're trying to do all this

Nope, that's quite clear "hit button in Jira, Test runs in Fitnesse"

I'd go for webhooks for this one -

 HI Nic,

I am also looking to achieve the same for us. We would like to write our cucumber test cases in JIRA(Xray) and on press of a button they should get transferred to Fitnesse and get executed after execution result get submitted back in JIRA as test results.

The link you have provided seems broken now, can I request you or Brian if he managed to achieve it can help me setting it up for us.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
