Lynxwork JIRA Connector

 Create and visualize traceability links to JIRA Issues from within Polarion, without having to synchronize any data between the systems.


Create traceability links from Polarion Work Items to JIRA Issues, just like you to any Polarion Work Item, but without running any synchronization jobs. Only connect to JIRA information that is identified as relevant to Polarion users. Gain real-time access to JIRA information directly from the source.


Lynxwork JIRA Connector is fully compatible with Polarion’s standard functionality for Linked Data applications.

Polarion is used as a Linked Data consumer, and you can use Polarion’s standard functionality to:

  • Create a Linked Data Friend with JIRA Connector.
  • Create Linked Data Associations between specific projects in Polarion and JIRA.
  • Map the Work Item and link types that can be linked to JIRA Issue types.

This same JIRA Connector can create traceability links from any other OSLC-enabled application, such as Teamcenter, IBM Doors, etc.


The JIRA Connector provides a basic starting functionality with a predefined set of JIRA Issue types (namely, Change Request, Task, and Defect).

Use LynxDesigner’s model-based low-code capabilities to extend the Connector to fully suit your particular needs:

  • Define the specific JIRA Issue types to expose to Polarion.
  • Configure the content and layout of the Jira Issue to present to the user.
  • Control the search logic when searching for JIRA Issues.


JIRA Connector is designed to work with JIRA Cloud. It should also work with any JIRA implementation that provides a REST API V3 interface.

This JIRA Connector can be deployed as a Docker Container, or servlet containers such as Apache Tomcat, or Jetty.
