Authenticating with a Jira Instance

Once you've created an app link, it's time to authenticate Workflow Steps for Jira with your Jira instance. 

  1. On the app home page, click Jira Server/DC.

    The Authentication wizard opens.

  2. Select the Jira instance you want to authenticate with from the dropdown, then click Submit to initiate the request.

  3. Click Authenticate to open Jira and finish the setup there.

    Jira opens in a new browser tab. You must be signed in to continue the authentication process.

  4. Click Allow in Jira when prompted to give read and write access to Workflow Steps for Jira.
    This permission allows workflows automated by the app to use your credentials as Jira interactions occur.

    A success message appears once the authentication is complete.

  5. Return to the Workflow Steps for Jira app home in Slack.
    The new authenticated Jira instance appears in the My Jira Connections list.
