The Jira integration in CloudDefense allows your team to seamlessly link security findings directly into your Jira projects, improving collaboration between security and development teams.



How Jira Integration Helps


  • Centralized Issue Tracking: Create Jira tickets directly from security findings in CloudDefense.

  • Prioritized Remediation: Prioritize security issues based on severity and assign them to the right teams.

  • Streamlined Collaboration: Enhance communication between security and development teams for quicker resolution.



Setting Up Jira Cloud


Go to the Integrations tab in the navigation bar. Look into Team Tools and select Jira from the available options.



On the Jira integration page, click the green New Integration button on the right side of the screen.

In the final step, you'll need to specify the vulnerability levels for which you want tickets automatically created in Jira.



When a scan detects new vulnerabilities tagged as "new", tickets will be generated for those marked as high priority, provided this setting is enabled in your Jira configuration.

This integration operates at the team level, ensuring that all applications within the team benefit from this streamlined process.
