Jira Cloud Alert Source
- A valid Squadcast cloud / On-Premise subscription
- A user account in JIRA Cloud with Administrator privileges
Follow the steps below to configure a service so as to push related alert data from Jira onto Squadcast.
Squadcast will then process this information to create incidents for this service as per your preferences.
Using Jira as an Alert Source in Squadcast
(1) From the navigation bar on the left, select Services. Pick the applicable Team from the Team-picker on the top. Next, click on Alert Sources for the applicable Service
(2) Search for Jira Cloud from the Alert Source drop-down and copy the Webhook URL
For an Alert Source to turn active (indicated by a green dot - Receiving alerts against the name of the Alert Source in the drop-down), you can either generate a test alert or wait for a real-time alert to be generated by the Alert Source.
An Alert Source is active if there is a recorded incident via that Alert Source for the Service in the last 30 days.
