Setup guide

Step 1: Set up Jira

  1. To get access to the Jira API you need to create an API token, please follow the instructions in this documentation.

Step 2: Set up the Jira connector in Airbyte

For Airbyte Cloud:

  1. Log into your Airbyte Cloud account.
  2. In the left navigation bar, click Sources. In the top-right corner, click + new source.
  3. On the source setup page, select Jira from the Source type dropdown and enter a name for this connector.
  4. Enter the API Token that you have created.
  5. Enter the Domain for your Jira account, e.g.
  6. Enter the Email for your Jira account.
  7. Enter the list of Projects (Optional) for which you need to replicate data, or leave it empty if you want to replicate data for all projects.
  8. Enter the Start Date (Optional) from which you'd like to replicate data for Jira in the format YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ. All data generated after this date will be replicated. Note that it will be used only in the following streams: BoardIssues, IssueComments, IssueProperties, IssueRemoteLinks, IssueVotes, IssueWatchers, IssueWorklogs, Issues, PullRequests, SprintIssues.
  9. Toggle Expand Issue Changelog allows you to get a list of recent updates to every issue in the Issues stream.

Supported Streams

This connector outputs the following full refresh streams:

This connector outputs the following incremental streams:

If there are more endpoints you'd like Airbyte to support, please create an issue.

Experimental Tables

The following tables depend on undocumented internal Jira API endpoints and are therefore subject to stop working if those endpoints undergo major changes. While they will not cause a sync to fail, they may not be able to pull any data. Use the "Enable Experimental Streams" option when setting up the source to allow or disallow these tables to be selected when configuring a connection.

  • Pull Requests (currently only GitHub PRs are supported)

Rate Limiting & Performance

The Jira connector should not run into Jira API limitations under normal usage. Please create an issue if you see any rate limit issues that are not automatically retried successfully.
