    • Name: Enter a name for your Jira connection.
    • Description (Optional): Add a description for reference.
    • Server URL: Add the Jira server URL. This is the URL of the server that exposes the Jira REST API. It is usually identical to the URL you navigate to when using Jira through your browser. For example: https://company-name.atlassian.net.

    • User: The username you use to authenticate to the Jira API.

    • API Token (Jira Cloud only): Generate an API token. For more information on Atlassian API tokens, see Manage API tokens for your Atlassian account.
