Jenkins is used by many teams around the world and for a while now the plug-in integrating Jenkins with Jira Software has been unsupported. However now Atlassian have announced an official integration with Jenkins.

The integration itself allow build information from Jenkins to be posted throughout Jira Software Cloud. This is similar to other CI/CD tools where you can automatically send build and deployment information from Jenkins and display it across Jira issues, boards and query it via JQL. In addition to this Atlassian also have built in a new way to integrate using OAuth Credentials.

"In addition to the Jenkins integration we also build a brand new way to integrate your behind-the-firewall apps with Jira Software Cloud. You can now generate OAuth Credentials (2LO) to securely connect these tools without having to open any holes in your firewall. The credential is tied to a specific Jira site, can be generated by Jira admins, and is used to communicate between a self-hosted application (e.g. a Jenkins server) and your Jira Software Cloud site."

Using OAuth Credentials is interesting since it will allow for secure connections even through firewalls to connect to Jira Software Cloud.

"You can now generate OAuth Credentials (2LO) to securely connect these tools without having to open any holes in your firewall. The credential is tied to a specific Jira site, can be generated by Jira admins, and is used to communicate between a self-hosted application (e.g. a Jenkins server) and your Jira Software Cloud site. The OAuth credential is currently scoped to only send build and deployment information via the Jira APIs."

This is great news for all Jenkins users and good news for all Jira Software Cloud users.
