In order to connect Jira you need to install the companion App.

  1. Please follow this link to the Atlassian Marketplace to install Ally App for Jira and Confluence.
  2. After the companion App is installed. You will need to confirm your identity by linking your Jira and Ally accounts. Why would you do this? Excellent question! You need to do this, so Ally can understand who you are in Jira and in Ally.
  3. You can do this by navigating to Sources in the menu and selecting Jira.

4. On the screen below you will need to enter your cloud Jira instance url. For example, https://getally.atlassian.net or https://moveworkforward.jira.com. After you entered the url you need to confirm your identity by clicking the button below. It will take your Ally login and redirect to a page in Jira (which is added by our companion app) to save account mapping between Jira and Ally.

That's it. Now can you add reports and streams of notifications that use Jira as a data source.

If you have any questions, please use the Messenger in the right bottom corner of every screen.
