JIRA, a product by Atlassian, offers bug tracking, issue tracking, and project management functions. Any event within JIRA can be set as a trigger for your workflow. Now whenever the specified event happens, the associated workflow will run automatically.
To set any JIRA event as trigger, you first need to switch on the trigger toggle button located near the ‘Start’ icon in your workflow. Then, from the list of triggers under ‘All Triggers’ on the right, drag and drop JIRA in to the given box.
Once you are done with this, select any event of your choice that you wish to set as trigger from the ‘Select Trigger’ dropdown options. Let us have a look at the various JIRA events that you can set as triggers.
Issue Created: When you set this as trigger, the associated workflow will run automatically whenever an issue is created in your JIRA account. To achieve this, you need to provide your JIRA domain name and password, as well as the Webhook name. Once you enter these details, click on ‘Save’, and then ‘Done’ to return to your workflow canvas.
Once you have entered all the details, 'Save' them and click on 'Done'. This will take you back to canvas.
