Atlassian JIRA


The Rally JIRA Rest connector provides bi-directional creation and updates of defects between Rally and JIRA. This provides an efficient means of using a separate defect tracking system without entering information twice.



  • Runs five update and copy services:
    • Create defect from Rally to JIRA
    • Create issue from JIRA to Rally
    • Update defect from Rally to JIRA
    • Update issue from JIRA to Rally
    • Update Rally fields and JIRA fields
  • Updates the name, description, state, priority, and owner fields
  • Abides by the (default) JIRA Workflow
  • Supports proxy servers
  • Creates a weblink between the Rally defect and the JIRA issue

See the JIRA Installation & User Guide for information on installing, configuring, and using the connector.

Note: For Mac and Linux, this integration requires Ruby 2.0.0-p247.

Supported Version: JIRA versions 5.2 and 6.0
Cost: Free
