Integrations

Jira

Overview

With Gremlin's Jira integration, you can create and track Jira issues directly from Scenario Runs and GameDay Summaries in Gremlin. Jira integration must be enabled at the individual user level.

Permissions

Gremlin requires access to certain information in your Jira workspace. Jira will provide a detailed list of permissions required and ask you to authorize access for Gremlin before the integration is enabled.

What will Gremlin be able to do?

  • View resources such as projects, users, issue types, and so on.
  • Create issues and update their attributes such as attachments, comments, and so on.

Enabling Jira integration

You can enable Jira integration for Gremlin in two places: Account Settings and on the Scenario Details page, under the Runs tab.
