IrisAgent Installation Guide for Atlassian Jira and Confluence


IrisAgent provides AI-powered correlations between Jira issues and support tickets using the Atlassian Jira integration. It enables cross-functional teams to better prioritize product issues based on support and business impact. IrisAgent provides AI-powered answers to support tickets from internal knowledge base in Confluence using the Atlassian Confluence integration.

Connect with Atlassian

  1. Login to the IrisAgent dashboard. This step assumes that you have already connected IrisAgent to your ticketing provider.
  2. Click on Manage Integrations option on the bottom left menu.
  3. If you are using Atlassian cloud instance, click on Connect with Atlassian/Jira Cloud. Else, if you are using Atlassian on-prem instance, click on Connect with Atlassian/Jira Server. Give the OAuth permissions and click on Allow. This will automatically connect IrisAgent with Jira and Confluence.
    • [Atlassian Cloud] If you are connecting with Atlassian Cloud, a follow-on page will show up that asks for the Atlassian cloud token, email address, and base URL. Here are the steps to create the token.
    • [Atlassian Server] If you are connecting with Atlassian Server, a follow-on page will show up that asks for the Atlassian server token and base URL. Here are the steps to create the token.

The above steps will complete the integration of IrisAgent with Atlassian. Please email us once these steps are completed, and our team will start setting up the machine learning models for your account.

Details on IrisAgent's Atlassian Connection

IrisAgent only ingests data from Atlassian from the last 3 months (can be configured). It make POST and GET API calls to fetch data while ensuring that the Atlassian's rate limits are not exceeded. The frequency of API call can be configured based on customer's preference.

Permissions of the Atlassian Token

The Atlassian token generated by a user has the same access level as that user’s permissions within jira. It is recommended that a service user be created and that user’s token be entered in the IrisAgent dashboard, so that permissions can be easily granted/revoked as and when new functionality is introduced.

  1. Read all blogs
  2. Read all pages

Granting Access only to either Jira/Confluence
