Enabling Integration with Atlassian JIRA Agile

To enable integration with Atlassian JIRA Agile:

  1. In the menu, click Projects > Project List.
  2. Select the project to which you want to establish integration.
  3. In the menu, click Project:<Project Name> > Project Settings .
  4. Click the Requirements Management tab.
  5. Click New Integration.
    Note: You can enable creating, editing and deleting requirements through Silk Central, rather than only allowing modifications through the integrated tool. You can allow modifications directly in Silk Central's UI, and/or through Silk Central's web services by checking the respective Allow requirement create, edit, and delete... check boxes.
    The New Integration dialog box opens.
  6. Select Atlassian JIRA Agile from the list and click Next. The Edit Configuration dialog box opens.
  7. Type a Name for the new profile. This is the name that is displayed in lists where the profiles are available for selection.
  8. Enter the URL of your JIRA Agile server.
  9. Type valid Username and Password credentials for JIRA Agile. The username needs to be a valid JIRA user profile name.
  10. In the Issue Types field, specify the issue types that you want to synchronize, separated by semicolons (;). All issue types (the generic object type in JIRA) can be synchronized. Since Atlassian JIRA Agile offers the creation of custom issue types, you can specify a list of Atlassian JIRA Agile issue types in Silk Central that you want to synchronize, such as for example Bug or Improvement.
  11. Optional: To limit the amount of requirements that are being synchronized, you can use the Custom JQL field to pre-filter requirements before they are being synchronized. Create a query using JIRA Query Language (JQL) within your JIRA Agile system, then copy and paste the string into the Custom JQL field. For more information on JQL, visit Atlassian's Advanced Searching Documentation.
    • Do not include ORDER BY statements in your JQL query.
    • The JQL string may not exceed 1000 characters.
    • The JQL query is used additionally to your configured project and issue types, it does not overrule those settings.
  12. Click Test Connection to confirm that the host and user credentials you have entered are correct. A Connection successful message box displays if the settings are correct. Click OK to continue.
    Note: Consult your system administrator if you are not able to establish a connection.
  13. Click Load. The Project list is populated with all the projects in JIRA Agile that you have permissions for.
  14. From the Project list, select the external project with which the Silk Central project is to be integrated.
  15. Click OK to save your settings.
