Connecting to JIRA Data in Workbench 5

Version 6


You can create a JIRA DataSet Job in Workbench 5. When you select JIRA as your DataSet type, you can enter your JIRA credentials and a JQL query to pull JIRA data into Workbench.

To create a JIRA DataSet Job in Workbench 5,

  1. Click the wb5_jobs_icon.png icon in the left-hand icon bar. 

  2. Click the "+" button in the top right corner of the jobs listing pane.

  3. Select the desired account (Domo instance) in the Domo Domain dropdown menu.
    If you have only one account set up, that account is already chosen for you and the menu is unavailable.

  4. In the Name field, enter a name for the DataSet Job.
    This is the name of the job as it appears in Workbench, not the name of the uploaded DataSet in Domo.

  5. In the Transport Type menu, select JIRA Connection Provider.

  6. In the Reader Type menu, select JIRA.

  7. In the DataSet Name field, enter the name of the DataSet. This is the name of the uploaded DataSet in Domo.
    This is the only setting you can change after saving the new job.

  8. In the DataSet Type field, select the type of DataSet in the dropdown.
    The DataSet type you select or enter here is reflected as the connector type in Domo after you execute the job.

  9. Enter a description for the DataSet if desired.
    This is the description of the DataSet as it appears in Domo. 

  10. Click Create.

    A new JIRA DataSet Job is added to the list of jobs for the currently authenticated account. Note that after creating the job, you cannot edit any of the settings you just configured except for the DataSet name. If you want to change any of the other settings, you must create a new job. 

  11. Click the Configure subtab.

  12. Click the Edit button under "Source."

    A panel opens with fields for connecting to JIRA.

  13. In the appropriate fields, enter the username and password you use to connect to your company JIRA instance.

    Note: If you try to execute a JIRA job with incorrect credentials, the JIRA account locks. You cannot fix this just by entering correct credentials—you must manually log into JIRA and pass a CAPTCHA validation.
  14. In the Server URL field, enter the URL where your company JIRA server is located.

  15. In the JIRA Query field, enter the query for the JIRA data you want to pull into your DataSet.

    Tip: You can create a JQL query in Jira, then copy and paste it in Workbench.

    Example JQL query

    project not in (ARCHIVE, CPD, DC, DCV, DP, QA, ODD) AND issuetype in (Epic) AND fixVersion in (2015-02-17) ORDER BY status DESC, resolved DESC, issuetype DESC, key ASC

    Important: If your JIRA query is set up without specific ordering, an error may be caused during the upload to Domo. In most cases you can get around this problem by ordering your results by created ASC in your query.

    For example:

    Reporter is not null order by created ASC

  16. Click Apply.

  17. Click the Edit button under "Processing."

  18. (Optional) Add additional attributes to the list by entering them in the Add included attribute field.

  19. (Optional) Remove attributes from the list by clearing their checkboxes then clicking Yes to confirm.

  20. Click Apply.

You are now ready to execute the DataSet Job, thereby creating a JIRA DataSet in Domo. However, there are many other actions you can take on the DataSet Job before you send it to Domo. These include the following:
