Connecting various applications within your organization is pivotal for fostering seamless collaboration and optimizing workflow efficiency. Getint offers a user-friendly platform made to simplify the integration process between diverse applications like Jira, ServiceNow, Azure DevOps, and Asana. This comprehensive guide will walk you through each step to establish robust connections effortlessly, ensuring smooth operations and enhanced productivity across your organization. Let's dive in!

User Account Requirements

To initiate the integration process, you'll need user accounts in both systems you plan to integrate. We highly recommend using a dedicated service account with administrative privileges. This ensures all integration functions can execute smoothly, enabling Getint to perform a wide range of actions effectively. While administrative access is preferred, the essential requirement is that the user account possesses the necessary permissions to create, update, and manage projects, types, and fields within the applications.

Role of the Service Account

The Service Account plays a pivotal role in facilitating integration operations. Here's what it entails:

  • Getint operates under the Service Account to execute various actions, including task creation and updates across integrated platforms.

  • Comments generated by Getint will be attributed to the Service Account, with clear indications of the original author in the comment footer. This practice fosters transparency and preserves context in communication threads

Providing Connection Details

To kickstart the integration process, specific details are required:

  • URL of the Instance: This refers to the web address where your application, such as Jira or ServiceNow, is hosted.

  • Username: Enter the username associated with the Service Account in the application.

  • Password/Token: Depending on the application, you may need to provide either a password or an API token for authentication.

By providing these details, Getint seamlessly connects your applications, mediating between two entities that would otherwise operate independently. It ensures smooth communication and data exchange, enabling your team to collaborate effectively across platforms and enhance productivity.

Now, let's connect with each application, generating its tokens:

Jira (Jira Software, and Jira Service Management)

Jira offers Cloud, Server, and Data Center options for integration. You may generate a Personal Access Token differently depending on the option.

Jira Cloud:

It is required to use a Personal Access Token for integration:

  • Log in to your Atlassian account and visit Atlassian Account Settings.

  • Go to Security and select “Personal API Token”.

  • Click on 'Create API token' and provide a label for your token to identify it.

  • Click 'Create' to generate the token.

  • Copy the token and ensure to store it securely in a safe location.

This API token will work as the authentication mechanism for connecting Jira Cloud with Getint, enabling seamless integration and data synchronization between the two platforms.

Connecting Jira Data Center/Server

Differently from the cloud, the Data Center will not require a Token but can work with an email and password. If Chosen to use the Token, leave the “email” option blank in the Getint platform:

  • Log in to your Jira Data Center instance.

  • Click on the Avatar on the top right of the screen.

  • Select “Profile” and then “Personal Access Tokens”.

  • Click on “Create Token”, provide a name for your Token, and select if this Token will expire and when.

  • Copy the token and ensure to store it securely in a safe location.

Jira Service Management

Jira also has the Jira Service Management option, for service tasks and projects. This can also be integrated and will use a Personal Token as a Password:

  • Log in to your Jira instance.

  • Click on the Avatar on the top right of the screen.

  • Select “Profile” and then “Personal Access Tokens”.

  • Click on “Create Token”, provide a name for your Token, and select if this Token will expire and when.

  • Copy the token and ensure to store it securely in a safe location.

Connect as you would do for a Jira Cloud, Server, or Data Center, depending on your type of access.

The permission level of personal access tokens in the Data Center is set to the level of access you currently have.
