[FishEye Knowledge Base]
JIRA Software is Atlassian's issue-tracking and project-management application. You can connect FishEye to JIRA Software for one or both of the following:
Configuring those two aspects are separate processes, and are described on this page. Note that you can link FishEye with one or more instances of JIRA Software. If you're linking FishEye to an Atlassian Cloud JIRA instance, please see Link to server applications from Cloud.
Your user tiers don't need to match between JIRA Software and FishEye/Crucible in order to integrate them. JIRA Software users that are not FishEye users will see the same view as FishEye users within JIRA Software, but will not be able to log in to FishEye to view the source/reviews.
You should check that the instances of JIRA Software that you wish to link to FishEye are configured to accept remote API calls; in each JIRA Software instance, go to Administration > System > General Configuration and turn on Accept remote API calls (under 'Options'). A restart is not required. See options for more details.
When you are installing FishEye, the setup wizard allows you to configure the JIRA connection automatically. This is a quick way of setting up your integration with JIRA for user management. See Configuring JIRA integration in the Setup Wizard.
If you did not set up JIRA integration during FishEye setup at install time, you can still configure that from the FishEye administration area as described below.
See JIRA Integration in FishEye for an overview of the benefits you get when FishEye and JIRA are integrated.
See Linking to another application for details about linking FishEye and JIRA servers to get those integration benefits.

We do not recommend the use of project links with FishEye 2.9 and later, if you have JIRA 5.0 or later as well as the latest version of the JIRA FishEye Plugin. This is because application links now provide all of the functionality previously available with project links. However, project links are retained for the following reasons:
