Atlassian recommends using API tokens to allow third-party applications to access your JIRA Cloud account. To do this, you'll create an API token in your Atlassian account and use it as your password credential when you create a new JIRA connection in Pleexy. Read on for step-by-step instructions.
Create API token
Start by creating an API token in your Atlassian account:
Log in to https://id.atlassian.com.
Click Create API token.
Enter a meaningful name for the token.
Click copy to clipboard
For security reasons, you won't be able to view the API token after closing the creation dialog window. If you forget to copy the token, create a new one.
Store the API token securely, just as you would any password.
Connect with API token
After you copy the API token, use it to connect your Jira Cloud account:
In the New connection list on the right side of the page, select JIRA.
Enter your JIRA credentials:
- Enter the URL of your JIRA cloud (for example, https://yourcompany.atlassian.net) in the JIRA hostname or URL to JIRA site field.
- Enter your email in the JIRA username field.
- Paste the API token in the JIRA account password field.
Click Connect JIRA.
