Manage Jira credentials

Contrast saves the most recent credentials for a Jira integration to help you set up new connections faster. The username, API key or password, and Jira URL values that you enter in your first configuration are the default credentials for the next Jira integration. Contrast will pre-populate the next Jira configuration with the default credentials, but you can modify these values, if you want. You can also manage saved sets of Jira credentials to update all affected configurations.

To create or edit a single configuration with credentials that are different from your default set:

  1. Go to the user menu > Organization Settings > Integrations.

  2. Select Show configurations to see the list of existing Jira integrations. Select the one you want to update.

  3. Select Manage credentials to see the Jira connection configuration details.

  4. In the URL field, use the dropdown to choose a set of saved credentials, or manually update the URL, username, and API key or password.

  5. Once you've updated the fields, select Test connection to be sure the changes work.

  6. Select Save.


    If you're using new credentials, you must choose to override the existing set of credentials under the given name, or save the new values as a new credential set under a different name.

To edit multiple Jira configurations at the same time:

  1. In Contrast, go to the user menu > Organization settings > Integrations.

  2. Select Manage credentials in the Jira Integration.

  3. In the Manage Jira credentials form, use the dropdown to select a set of saved credentials.

  4. Edit the username, API key or password, or Jira URL.

  5. Select Rename if you want to use a different name for the edited credentials.


    Any updates to a set of credentials will affect all configurations using that set.

  6. Select Test connection to be sure the integration works.

  7. Select Save.


    Any updates to a set of credentials will change all configurations that use this set.
