JIRA Integration for Grafana Cloud

JIRA is a tool for planning, tracking, and releasing software. This integration focuses on showing overall health and utilization of a JIRA instance.

Use the walkthrough in Grafana Cloud to install the JIRA Integration.

Requirements

This integration will only work for JIRA Server or JIRA Data Center instances. It will not work for JIRA Cloud. This is because the required Prometheus Exporter for JIRA cannot be installed on JIRA Cloud instances.

Post-install configuration for the JIRA Integration

The following agent configuration defines a scrape job that pulls the metrics from a JIRA instance on localhost on the port defined in the example config above. If cAdvisor is running on a different host the address must be adjusted to match.

prometheus:
  wal_directory: /tmp/wal
  configs:
    - name: integrations
      scrape_configs:
        - job_name: 'jira'
          scheme: http # Change to https if used
          metrics_path: '/plugins/servlet/prometheus/metrics'
