Since WatchTower version 2.0.0, the app can add Jira Server sources accessible via SSO. The app accesses such sources using Personal Access Token.

  • Available natively from Jira 8.14.0 and above
    With the Resolution SSO addon for versions below 8.14.0


Personal access tokens (PATs) offer a secure way to integrate external applications with your WatchTower app, providing a safe alternative to using username and password for authentication. 



Creating PATs for your Jira

  1. In Jira, select your profile picture at the top right of the screen, then choose Personal Access Tokens .
  2. Select Create token.
  3. Give your new token a name.
  4. Optionally, for security reasons, you can set your token to automatically expire after a set number of days. 

    The EXPIRES SOON status appears 5 days before the actual expiration date. Once the token expires, you can't reactivate it. You must create a new token.

  5. Click Create.

Your personal access token is created. Copy the token and store it in a safe space.    Learn more
