Note: You'll need the your email and and API token to add your JIRA account (more info on the popup).


  1. Once you add the credentials, add the Issue-Tracker URL.
  2. Add the Project Key. Should match the key value from Jira/Atlassian project page.

The following fields are optional:

  1. Assignee Account ID. e.g.
  2. Label should be a single word without any white spaces. If more than one label to be tagged, provide comma (,) seperated labels. label1,label2,label3

Activating the toggle button will log the vulnerabilities to Jira.

Finally, click on Test Credentials button to validate the connection has established and click Save.

If everything is setup correctly, you'll see Valid Jira Credentials message at the bottom of the screen.
