Jira update: support for Jira Self-hosted (on-prem) instance

Ellis Toms on January 18th 2018


Gearset’s integration with Jira lets you automatically post deployment updates to your tickets and keep up-to-date with the progress of your user stories. Gearset now supports Jira Self-hosted (on-prem) as an instance type, as well as the default Jira Cloud instance.

You can now also search and select which Jira ticket you’d like to add to your validation or deployment package from a dropdown list, rather than add your ticket reference manually.

Support for Jira Self-hosted (on-prem)

Previously when setting up Jira within Gearset, Jira Cloud would automatically be selected as the instance type. With this new update you now can choose either Jira Cloud or Jira Self-hosted as your instance type when adding a Jira connection. If you need help on setting up your Jira connection, take a look at our handy support guide.

Choose your Jira instance type from the dropdown menu

Search and select Jira tickets to attach to your deployments

Once a Jira connection has been set up, all you have to do is add the Jira ticket reference on the Summary of objects to deploy page. Gearset will then automatically post updates to your Jira ticket(s), providing a direct link back to your deployment. Previously you would have had to type in your Jira ticket reference(s) manually. With our latest update you can simply search for a Jira ticket in the dropdown menu by ticket summary or description, and then just select which ticket(s) to attach to your validation or deployment package.
