Installable with the Extension Manager


Allows configuring JIRA instances (URL, username/password) for your wiki. These configuration can the be used by other JIRA components such as the JIRA Macro or the JIRA Scripting API.

To use it, just go the Administration UI and click on "JIRA". You'll get the following screen in which you can add JIRA server configurations:


The Id field is a free-form field that you can fill with any name you wish for that JIRA instance. It can then be used, for example from the JIRA Macro such as in the screenshot example:

The password field is either the user password or a user token (in Atlassian Cloud of JIRA Data Center). To create a token for Atlassian Cloud click here

{{jira id="xwikiorg"...}}...{{/jira}}

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki
