The Connector provides a set of URLs that can be used by Salesforce to call on Jira functionality such as creating new issues or viewing related Jira issues from within a Salesforce object page.
These URLs are listed, for every Salesforce object mapping, under that object's mapping configuration under the Endpoints heading.
Locating the Endpoint URLs
To find the Endpoints for the Salesforce object mapping:
- Go to Cog Icon
- In the sidebar, under Cloud Connectors, click Mappings.
- Choose the desired Salesforce Object mapping and click Configure.
- At the Configure Mappings screen, you will see the > Endpoints label.
Click on the > Endpoints label to display the Endpoint URLs table.

These URLs are not editable directly in Jira.
They are only made available in the Endpoints table for the Jira admin's reference for use while configuring Salesforce.
