The Jira activities use either OAuth 2.0 or Token Authentication to establish a connection between UiPath and your Jira environment. This connection authorizes a Robot to call the Jira APIs and access resources on your behalf.
For more information and before you build your first automation project, see the Setup guide.
You select the type of authentication that you want to use (Authentication Type) and enter the URL of your Jira server (Server URL) into the Jira Scope activity.
Then enter in either your OAuth Credentials (ClientID and ClientSecret) or your Token Credentials (Api Token and Username) to complete the information needed to establish an authenticated connection to your Jira application.
After establishing a connection, a parent Jira Scope activity can output a record of the connection in a
Jira Connection object (Jira Connection) that you can use in subsequent child scope activities.
The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example of how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.
- Complete the Setup steps.
- Add the Jira Scope activity to your project.
- Select your Authentication Type and enter value for either your OAuth Authentication or Token Authentication properties.
- Create and enter a
Jira Connectionvariable for Output property.
- You can use this variable in subsequent uses of the Jira Scope activity.
