Add Projects to JIRA

You can add projects to JIRA to manage Tenable vulnerabilities.

Note: Users who manage projects must have the following permissions selected: create issue, edit issue, resolve issue, and link issue. You can set these permissions in the permissions section of the JIRA Plugin for Tenable.io configuration page. For additional information about permissions, see the JIRA documentation.

Before you begin

  • You must have administrative access privileges in JIRA.

To add projects to JIRA:

  1. Log in to JIRA.
  2. Click > Projects.
  3. Click the Create Project button.
  4. Select Tenable Vulnerability Management (recommended) or any type that you want.

    Note: Do one of the following:

    • If you configured the Tenable Plugin for JIRA, select Tenable Vulnerability Management. Tenable recommends you use this project type for managing vulnerability issues in JIRA.
    • If you have not configured the Tenable Plugin for JIRA, select any project type.  The plugin automatically adds custom fields, issue types, and workflow when you enable the integration.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Type the information in the corresponding fields.

    Option Name Description
    Name The name of the project.
    Project Key (Optional) A unique key identifying the project in JIRA. This value is automatically populated when you type the project name. However, you can manually change it.
    Project Lead (Optional) The JIRA user who owns the project.

    Note: Depending on the project type you select, JIRA may prompt you for additional project configuration. For more information, see the Atlassian JIRA documentation.

  7. Click Submit.

    The New Project window opens.

    Note: The empty project syncs once you select this project as your Default Project on the Tenable.io Configuration or Tenable.sc Configuration page.
