Connecting JIRA to Rollbar

For general information about Rollbar's issue tracking features, check out the Issue Tracking guide.

In JIRA

In order to connect Rollbar to JIRA, you must configure an Application Link between Rollbar and JIRA.

  • Go to Settings –> Applications –> Application Links, enter the URL https://rollbar.com and click Create New Link
    • You may see "No response was received from the URL you entered - it may not be valid. Please fix the URL below, if needed, and click Continue." This is nothing to worry about. You can just click Continue and it will work.
  • In the form that appears, enter the following values:
    • Application Name: Rollbar
    • Application Type: Generic Application
    • Service Provider Name: Rollbar
    • Consumer Key: OauthKey
    • Shared Secret: Rollbar
    • Request Token URL: https://rollbar.com
    • Access Token URL: https://rollbar.com
    • Authorize URL: https://rollbar.com
    • Create incoming link: Checked
  • Click Continue and then enter the following values in the next screen:
    • Consumer Key: OauthKey
    • Consumer Name: Rollbar
    • Public Key:

      -----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----

      eLRyTwg7TERcqDGg+wIDAQAB
      -----END PUBLIC KEY-----
      
  • Click Continue. JIRA should finish configuring the application link then display the message
    Application Link 'Rollbar' created successfully.
    

In Rollbar

  • Go to Settings –> Notifications –> Available Channels –> JIRA.
  • If no users in the project have configured a JIRA credential, then you will need to enter the URL of your JIRA server to set up a default credential for the project. Otherwise, you can select from the available credentials in the project.
    • If you wish to set up an additional JIRA credential for use as the project default, then go to User Settings –> Connected Accounts –> JIRA to complete the configuration.
  • Select a JIRA Project and Issue Type for the linked issues created for the Rollbar Project
  • By default, each Rollbar user must have a JIRA credential configured in order to use the Create Issue button in the item view. If you would like for project members to be able to use the default project credential rather than entering their own, then check Use default credentials if user has not connected to JIRA.
  • Click Send Test Notification to verify that issues can be created in your JIRA project.
  • Click Enable to turn on the integration.

For detailed instructions on using and configuring automatic and manual issue tracking integration, check out the Issue Tracking guide.
