After Streak Connector for Jira has been successfully installed, the next step you should consider is configuring the plugin.
Configuration screen can be accessed in 2 ways:
1. By pressing on a ‘Configure’ button within a plugin box:
2. By pressing on a ‘Pipeline Configurations’ link on the navigation menu on the left:
This is how the configuration screen looks like when you access it for the first time:
Currently, there are no configurations. To add a new one, press on an ‘Add pipeline configuration’ button.
What we see next is an empty form with some input fields:

Should you change any values of fields on Streak side you have an option to update relevant values on JIRA Side
Available options in your dropdown columns on Streak side:
-all available statuses within the current default project (see the screenshot above);
-all available priorities all over the project;
-all assignable users in the following format: Peter Griffin (pgriffin), where Peter Griffin is a user’s full name taken from JIRA and pgriffin is his JIRA username:
That’s all that it takes to have JSC up and running. You can wire as many projects and pipelines as you wish as long as they are all within the same Streak account.
