To connect JIRA with Taco, from the Connectors page, click “JIRA.” Taco will present a settings page like the one below. Provide your JIRA account credentials to Taco in the settings below.

Note: We don’t like having account credentials. JIRA does not have the concept of an API token and enabling OAuth access requires administrative privileges (as well as jumping through an impractical number of hoops; details). If JIRA supports an API token or simpler OAuth, Taco will attempt to use it.

Here’s how to find your local (“Atlassian Cloud”) password: Atlassian OnDemand with Google Apps
