How to set up the Jira or Jira Server application for your organization

Introduction

This guide will show you how to set up the Jira or Jira Server application for your organisation on Blink.

There are a few small differences in setup between Jira Server and Jira that are highlighted in this guide. You should set up the 'Jira Server' app if you are running Jira on-prem. You should set up the 'Jira' app if you are running Jira as part of an Atlassian Cloud package.

In your Jira instance, navigate to the 'Application Links' page in the Appliciations tab in Settings

In the text box, enter app.joinblink.com and click 'Create new link'

In the modal that appears, tick 'Use this URL' and click 'Continue'

On the new modal that appears, put Blink in the 'Application Name' field, then click 'Continue'

Make a note of the value in 'Application URL' with the Jira icon next to it at the top of this modal. This is your Jira instance URL. This is what you provide Blink on the app setup page.

You will now have an Application Link called 'Blink' in your list of Application Links

Click the pencil icon on the right hand side of the Blink Application Link.

In the modal that appears, navigate to 'Incoming Authentication'

On this page fill in the form with the following values:

Consumer Key: blink-86596795-944a-4e05-914f-d83b201c699d

Consumer Name: Blink

Public Key: MIIBIjANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAAOCAQ8AMIIBCgKCAQEAp8qgPsXPsR0ffE1Zsdan+8dUKEI+hUpxXVaZ5ynfaFSi34Zp+yRvIZXpjH5VEeMtA9jH6VsjTxoRpT911gb+ms02xGdMS+hXZW+j4TsfTtU9kOU2e/+qrMOCA1Hc0UCSBXXbrd3AYckJz+mt7TxTVNWXcBiPcBQIJzqaRDixwjMsSW1aKlZHUXlVRrVgL2UmfjwoZZXmHqIiHarRoJ7TOgixczyeYEC06cH59JvIwdNZfXHjpVX+PNMylr3QnJpNUqzomfaxTwEAu6OX6x/MhKCDOd0nupiH+FysBGZn3d1FOb3XSBiSjAN1oL85NixQkw/huh31uBZyeqYOqnMwbwIDAQAB

Consumer Callback URL:

Please note this...

Make sure that you use the correct URL depending on whether you're setting up the Jira or Jira Server application.

Jira: https://api.joinblink.com/connector/l-2ce01695-b60e-456f-8a2f-df1369496665/oauth/callback/


Jira Server: https://api.joinblink.com/connector/l-b25599f7-52f2-469a-ac88-d3616685ba28/oauth/callback/


Then click 'Save'

Now navigate to the Settings > System > Webhooks page

Click "+ Create a Webhook" on the top right of the page

On the following page set the following:

Webhook Name: Blink


Please note this...

Make sure that you use the correct URL depending on whether you're setting up the Jira or Jira Server application.

Jira: https://api.joinblink.com/connector/l-2ce01695-b60e-456f-8a2f-df1369496665/webhooks


Jira Server: https://api.joinblink.com/connector/l-b25599f7-52f2-469a-ac88-d3616685ba28/webhooks


And select Issue created, updated and Comment created as events to send. Then scroll to the bottom of the page and click save.

Congratulations, you have now connected Jira to Blink.

The final step is to point Blink to your Jira instance.

Either select Jira or Jira Server in the apps tab and put the instance url for your Jira instance into the textbox, then click save.

Users in your organization can now connect their Jira accounts to Blink and get cards from Jira in their feeds.
