How to Connect
1. Create JIRA application
The first step would be to create an application in Jira to connect it later to Everhour. Below we guide you step by step how to do this.
Go to Settings > Applications > Application Links
or add “/plugins/servlet/applinks/listApplicationLinks” to your base URL.
Type “https://everhour.com” and press the Create new link button.
You will see a warning that the Url is invalid. Please ignore the message and click Continue.
Now you need to configure your application. Please, fill in the same fields as you see on the screenshot (may copy the same info under the screenshot) and check the mark near Create incoming link:
Application Name: Everhour Application Type: Generic Application Service Provider Name: Everhour Consumer key: YAZm8KTbuwuK7ZJ Shared secret: FqgB5IfGdT1btiGT Request Token URL: / Access token URL: / Authorize URL: / Create Incoming Link: CHECKED
Click Continue and enter Consumer Key, Consumer Name, and Public Key ( you may copy the same info under this screenshot).
Consumer Key: YAZm8KTbuwuK7ZJ (or any other password-like string) Consumer Name: Everhour Public Key: MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQCx7Cx3zTGotRBwjO1YwLrFny+N VyIqK0mSasuCxpgi+CW9lDKYFj9IRaeDkeOYUSgGclZdMyU5iy7+cdZ5GYiwCXm0 5iFjn5cdU1/qifp3mTFs9uC5z9u0FilnifJdueP8kXn1/6sbfxWa4FbXKohxqTwd Y/YCvcFAQymzch5FwQIDAQAB
Click Continue to finish the setup. You should now see Everhour on the application list.
2. Connect with Everhour
Now you should go to your Everhour account > Integrations and click Add More Applications. Select JIRA from the application list and fill your Name (any title of your account), the Url (leading to your Jira account) and the Consumer key (the same you entered above).
Click Connect to finish setup.
3. Enable connection for other members.
Now, when you’ve already connected with JIRA application, other team members can select this configuration.
What’s get connected
When you connect Jira, Everhour will sync all your projects across all organizations and issues that belong to these projects.
Everhour usually syncs information every 15-30 minutes, but some rare changes (e.g. update priorities or milestones) occur less frequently. We do a force sync every 24 hours to ensure that we update everything.
We do not place a timer on issues of projects that are from business type. We also don’t place a timer on your issues when you have a self-hosted Jira.
We don’t connect with archived projects. The reason is that we no longer see such project connected to Everhour, so time entries from it disappear from your Time page but remain in reports for team admins.
We don’t sync Jira custom fields now as in some other integrations due to technical challenges to do that.
