About Jira

Jira is a project management tool that allows you to create and manage tasks.

From Jira's website:

Plan, track, and manage your agile and software development projects in Jira. Customize your workflow, collaborate, and release great software.

Setting up your Jira source

To set up your Jira source, navigate to Settings > Data Sources inside of the Makelog app.

The Jira API uses token-based authentication. For help with creating an API token, go to https://id.atlassian.com/manage-profile/security/api-tokens‚Äč

Then, add your API key, Base URL, and Username to the Makelog Settings console:

Allow up to 5 minutes or so for Makelog to sync your Jira entries.

Makelog syncs the following from Jira:

  • Issues

  • Epics

Once they're synced, you will see a success message on the Settings > Data Sources page under Jira with the Last Sync time. Then, you will see these entries populated in the side panel when you start a New Post.
