Jira GitOps integration

Codefresh has native integration for Atlassian Jira, to enrich images with information from Jira. Codefresh can monitor a feature all the way from the ticket creation phase, up to when it is implemented and deployed to an environment.

For information on adding a Jira GitOps integration in Codefresh, see Issue-tracking GitOps integrations.


  1. Get your Jira instance credentials by following the Atlassian documentation.
  2. Note down the following as you will need them to complete the integration with Codefresh:
    • Jira URL
    • Jira username/email to be used for the integration
    • Jira password/token created for this user
