The feature described in this article is currently rolling out to some Jira Service Management Cloud customers. It may not yet be visible or available on your site.

What does the integration offer?

Use Jira Service Management's Evident.io Integration to forward Evident.io alerts to Jira Service Management. Jira Service Management determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

How does the integration work?

When a signature is created in Evident.io, an alert is created in Jira Service Management automatically through the integration.

Set up the integration

Evident.io is an API-based integration. Setting it up involves the following steps:

  • Add an Evident.io integration in Jira Service Management

  • Configure the integration in Evident.io

Add an Evident.io integration

If you're using the Free or Standard plan in Jira Service Management, you can only add this integration from your team’s operations page. To access the feature through Settings (gear icon) > Products (under JIRA SETTINGS) > OPERATIONS, you need to be on Premium or Enterprise plan.

Adding an integration from your team’s operations page makes your team the owner of the integration. This means Jira Service Management only assigns the alerts received through this integration to your team.

To add an Evident.io integration in Jira Service Management, complete the following steps:

  1. Go to your team’s operations page.

  2. On the left navigation panel, select Integrations and then Add integration.

  3. Run a search and select “Evident.io”.

  4. On the next screen, enter a name for the integration.

  5. Optional: Select a team in Assignee team if you want a specific team to receive alerts from the integration.

  6. Select Continue.
    The integration is saved at this point.

  7. Expand the Steps to configure the integration section and copy the API URL.
    You will use this URL while configuring the integration in Evident.io later.

  8. Select Turn on integration.
    The rules you create for the integration will work only if you turn on the integration.

Configure the integration in Evident.io

To configure the integration of Evident.io with Jira Service Management, complete the following steps:

  1. In Evident.io, go to Control Panel > Integrations.

  2. Select Webhook.

  3. Paste the API URL copied previously from Jira Service Management into URL.

  4. Enter the maximum number of alerts that may be sent through this integration every minute into Throttle Rate.

  5. Check the alert types and signatures to receive.

  6. Select Submit.

  7. Fill in the Integration Configuration form.

  8. Select Save.
