Connectors in Klera enable you to access data from various tools used in your enterprise. For example, you can connect tools used in Application Lifecycle Management such as Jira, Bitbucket, GitHub etc. with Klera and analyze the data from them.
These connectors are bi-directional which means you can read data from these tools and write back to them as well.
Before you start using a connector, you need to configure it to connect to the instance of the tool your organization is using. Configurations usually require you to provide the endpoint details (e.g. URL, connection string) and user credentials for authentication and authorization.
For example, let’s connect with your Jira instance as shown below.
- Right-click on the Floor to connect Klera to Jira instance.
- To add a Jira Account, select Jira > Accounts > Add.
- In the form that appears on your screen, provide the Jira instance URL, Username, Password and Authentication type.
Jira provides Basic and Token-based authentication.
|Note: If you want to use basic authentication, you can provide your Jira username and password. To use token-based authentication, you have to provide the complete user name (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) and provide the generated token in place of the password.|
- Click on Submit.
Post successful validation of the login credentials, you will get notified that the account has been added.
Once connected, you can fetch and analyze data from Jira by performing various operations.
