I am trying to integrate Test Link (version 1.9.14) with my JIRA cloud instance.

I was earlier using the JIRA (interface- SOAP) to connect with JIRA, but wasn't successful, because JIRA, has deprecated SOAP interface after version 6.

So, I tried to configure using JIRA (interface- REST)

My configuration file is :

 <!-- CRITIC - WITH HTTP getIssue() DOES NOT WORK -->
<!-- 1: User will be able to manage following attributes from GUI -->  
<!-- Issue Type, Issue Priority, Affects Versions, Components -->
<!-- 0: values for attributes will be taken FROM this config XML from  GUI -->

<!-- Configure This if you want be able TO CREATE ISSUES -->

After saving, I am seeing that the connection is still showing to be KO (not connected). The weird thing - I cannot see any error messages in the Events Logs.

I tried to check if my REST URI is correct, using SOAP-UI, . I used the URI


but it returned a 404 error.

Has anyone tried this linking before? If so, what am I doing wrong in the configuration.

  • Do you mean to say that you are not able to interact with jira's rest api using soapUI tool?

  • myjirainstance.atlassian.net is the service provided by Attlassian or you have some local instance of JIRA? If the latter you should give name of your host instead.

  • I have replaced this with my cloud instance already. Jan 6, 2016 at 10:47
  • @Rao - yes the SOAP UI shows error for this REST URI. Jan 6, 2016 at 10:47
  • @log_file, did some time ago successfully get data from jira. Have you looked at jira documentation for the same? Have you included the authentication?

We've succesfully integrated TestLink 1.9.10 with Jira in the Cloud. My configuration for the issue tracker record in TestLink is:

    <!-- Template jirarestInterface -->





    <!-- CRITIC - WITH HTTP getIssue() DOES NOT WORK -->



    <!-- Configure This if you want be able TO CREATE ISSUES -->





  • USER is a valid Jira user that has permission to create bugs.

  • PROJ is the Key of the Project in Jira where bugs are going to be created.

  • Issue type is 1 because that's the issue type for the project PROJ that corresponds to bugs.

  • "..." corresponds to "://" (I replaced it because the answer wouldn't save otherwise)

Hope this helps.





I was having the same issue. But after spending some time looking into testlink source code,I was able to connect teslink 1.9.14 with JIRA using Rest Api.

Here is what I did,

Change hoststring from "'user/search/?username='" to "'user/?username='" at line number 73 in File "/var/www/html/testlink/third_party/fayp-jira-rest/Jira.php".

As per JIRA Rest API to check whether user exist in system or not, the string should be http://Jirainstance/rest/api/latest/user/?username=JIRAUser.

Whereas Testlink is creating string as "http://Jirainstance/rest/api/latest/user/search/?username=JIRAUser. Which in result is returning a blank JSON, So testlink is returning connection as False. For me that is the cause of above problem.
