App registration in Azure

Learn how to register Azure AD Attributes in Azure Active Directory

In order to connect Azure AD with Jira you need to register the Azure AD Attributes app in Azure AD. During this process, you’ll generate following identification keys that are necessary for the further steps:

  • Directory (tenant) ID
  • Application (client) ID
  • Client secret value

Adding the app to Azure AD

Steps

To register the Azure AD Attributes app in Azure AD:

  1. On the Azure portal, open Azure Active Directory.

Generating a client secret

Directory (tenant) ID and Application (client) ID are ready. The last thing necessary for a successful Jira-Azure integration is a client secret.

Client secret values can be viewed only immediately after creation. Make sure to save the value before leaving the page.

Steps

To generate a client secret:

  1. Navigate to Certificates & secrets.
