Configuring OSLC Remote Application

This configuration section is aimed for the OSLC Remote Application administrator, contains the tasks required for completing the configuration of OSLC Connect for Jira. These tasks however are not explained in detail as it is not the scope of this guide to provide procedures of all possible products out there being compatible with this connector; instead, it is expected readers be familiar with configuring friends, consumers and project associations of their own managing product(s). If this is not the case, please refer to the corresponding official documentation before continuing.

Most configurations ahead require a collaborative work with the Jira Server administrator who will ask you to [1]:

  1. Configure a consumer/friend for Jira in each OSLC Remote Application they require.
  2. Register associations for Jira project in each OSLC Remote Application project they require.

Additional configuration might be necessary or useful for some specific OSLC Remote Applications, as detailed below.
