Hello @james-selva-kumar 

Welcome to Atlassian Community..!!!

Two ways of connection from Jira/JSM can be performed

1.  In Jira/JSM we have the connector called Power BI connector for Jira & the add-on is supported for cloud as well data center variant.

2, I seem that Power BI already has a content pack that integrates with JIRA.

To connect to the JIRA content pack, simply choose JIRA from the list of available content packs. You will be asked to provide your JIRA URL and credentials.

Please, check the documentation below to have more details on how you can configure the mentioned content pack & also find the relevant links

Thanks and Regards,

Hi @james-selva-kumar and welcome to the Atlassian Community.  I'd just add that one should be careful when connecting BI type tools to Jira as they can make significant performance impacts depending on the way and frequency with which they are used.  Be sure to have a good monitoring baseline established prior to releasing any tool of this type to the user community at large so you can monitor the affects of usage and tune your instance appropriately.  In several cases, I've had to stand up a read-only copy of the Jira database that's refreshed some number of times each day so reporting tools didn't cause the application to become sluggish and unresponsive to users.  Cheers!

That is a good tip for sure Larry. Any large and frequent queries can be a burden.
