In this tutorial, we integrate Jira work items into a value stream and control value stream data with DQL queries.
All non-trivial value streams that you create require integration with external tools. You integrate external tools into the product by using plug-ins. UrbanCode™Velocity provides numerous plug-ins for you to use. In this tutorial, we demonstrate how to use the popular issue-tracking system, Jira. If you do not use Jira, the concepts that you will learn in this tutorial apply to other issue-tracking tools, and most other external tools as well. Additionally, the DQL queries that you define to control tutorial data are similar to those that you will use in all value streams that you create.
In this tutorial, you learn how to complete these tasks:
- Create a value stream.
- Customize a value stream by modifying its associated JSON file.
- Integrate external tools into a value stream.
- Use DevOps Query Language queries to manage the items that appear in a value stream.
Time required: 2 hours
This tutorial takes approximately 1 hour to finish. If you explore other concepts that are related to this tutorial, it might take longer to complete.
To run this tutorial, you must have installed the UrbanCodeVelocity application, version 1.2.6 or later
To complete this tutorial, you need:
- A user ID with a role that enables you to create value streams and configure plug-in integrations.
- Access to a Jira project and a Jira user ID that allows you to create and modify Jira issues. Experience with Jira workflows is useful but not required. If you do not already have access to a Jira project, the next lesson describes how to create a free-to-use project.
