Snap type:



This Snap provides the functionality to execute HTTP Post method to a JIRA REST API service endpoint to link JIRA issues.

For more information about the JIRA Issue Link API,  refer to the official JIRA Rest API document for the Link Issue Resource.


The user must have the link issue permission in JIRA.

This Snap uses account references created on the Accounts page of SnapLogic Manager to handle access to this endpoint. The Snap supports the JIRA basic auth account. The JIRA sites may or may not allow anonymous access.



This Snap has exactly one input view and receives documents in the view. Each document contains data needed to create a link between two issues at the JIRA REST API service endpoint. The Snap provides schema on the input view.

Example input:

Code Block
        "type": { "name": "Duplicates" },
        "inwardIssue": { "key": "JIRASNAP-1" },
        "outwardIssue": { "key": "JIRASNAP-2" },
        "comment": { "body": "Linked related issue!", "visibility": { "type": "role", "value": "Users" } } }

Note that the "visibility" part is optional. See the Examples section below for more information.

OutputThis Snap has at most one output view and produces documents in the view. Each document contains the response data from the JIRA REST API service endpoint.
