Integrate with Honeycomb

This article highlights a new alerting feature that's natively available in Jira Service Management which is gradually 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 the Honeycomb integration to forward Honeycomb triggers 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, iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until they are acknowledged or closed.

How does the integration work?

When a dataset query creates a trigger with the integration, it creates an alert in Jira Service Management.

Set up the integration

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

  • Add a Honeycomb integration in Jira Service Management

  • Configure the integration in Honeycomb

Add a Honeycomb integration

Bidirectional integrations aren’t supported in Free and Standard plans. All the other integrations are supported at a team level in Free and Standard; however, for their outgoing part to work, you need to upgrade to a higher plan. To add any integration at a site level through Settings (gear icon) > Products (under JIRA SETTINGS) > OPERATIONS, you need to be either on Premium or Enterprise.

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 a Honeycomb 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 “Honeycomb”.

  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 integration URL, which includes Jira Service Management’s endpoint and the API key.
    You will use this URL while configuring the integration in Honeycomb 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 Honeycomb

To configure the integration in Honeycomb, complete the following steps:

  1. In Honeycomb, from the bottom of the left menu, select Usage.

  2. Go to the Integrations tab.

  3. In the Trigger Recipients section, select Add Integration.

  4. Select Webhook for Provider.

  5. Enter values for Name and Team-oncall.

  6. Paste the URL previously copied from Jira Service Management into Webhook URL.

  7. Paste the API key previously copied from Jira Service Management into Shared Secret.

  8. Select Add.

  9. Select Test to check your integration.

Sample webhook message from Jira Service Management

When you select "Test" for integration, it does not send "result_groups" and "result_groups_triggered" in the JSON. You can test these using a Trigger Test.
