Press the blue "Connect" button to save your credentials.

Connecting to Jira

Once your users have connected their Jira account, you can use the Paragon SDK to access the Jira API on behalf of connected users.

See the Jira REST API documentation for their full API reference.

Any Jira API endpoints can be accessed with the Paragon SDK as shown in this example.

// You can find your project ID in the Overview tab of any Integration

// Authenticate the user
paragon.authenticate(<ProjectId>, <UserToken>);

// Create Issue
await paragon.request("jira", "/rest/api/3/issue", {
  method: "POST",
  body: {
    "fields": {
      "summary": "Main order flow broken",
      "issuetype": { "id": "10003" },
      "project": { "id": "10000" }

// Get Issue
await paragon.request("jira", "/rest/api/3/search", { 
  method: "GET",

Building Jira workflows

Once your Jira account is connected, you can add steps to perform the following actions:

  • Create issue

  • Update issue

  • Get issue by issue key

  • Search issues

  • Search issues by JQL query

  • Get projects

When creating or updating cards in Jira, you can reference data from previous steps by typing {{ to invoke the variable menu.
