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?

Jira Service Management has an email integration with Uptrends. Use the integration to send Uptrends alerts to Jira Service Management's API with detailed information. Jira Service Management acts as a dispatcher for these alerts and determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

How does the integration work?

When an alert is created in Uptrends, an alert is also created in Jira Service Management automatically through the integration.

Set up the integration

Uptrends is an email integration. Setting it up involves the following steps:

  • Add an Uptrends integration in Jira Service Management

  • Configure the integration in Uptrends

Add an Uptrends 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 an Uptrends 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 “Uptrends”.

  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 email address.
    You will use this email address while configuring the integration in Uptrends 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 Uptrends

To configure the integration of Uptrends with Jira Service Management, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Uptrends portal, select Alerts > + Add alert definition.

  2. Select Escalation level and configure the escalation rules.

  3. Paste the email address copied previously into Send to additional e-mail addresses.

  4. Select Save.
