As part of the original ActiveControl / JIRA integration build back in 2017, a custom user exit solution was delivered to enable a customer to automatically populate a Web UI URL into a custom field on the JIRA ticket.
ActiveControl 8.2 adds this functionality into ths standard product via a User Exit solution. Additionally, the format of the URL has been improved to make it a more actionable URL (ie a link to the Business Task within the Web UI from which an Approval or Test signoff can be performed) than was possible back in 2017.
1. Configure custom field in JIRA ticket screen where the ActiveControl URL has to be populated via the integration.
2. Add standard user exit /BTI/TE_EXIT_BTLINKJIRA_0040 into /BTI/TE_EXITC table in the Domain Controller.
3. Configure /BTI/TE_TVARV with the following variables:
AC_JIRA_BTURLFLD: Low value should be the JIRA custom field number in format customfield_NNNNN
AC_JIRA_SYSTEM: Low value should be the system number of the JIRA Integration (as per what is configure din /BTI/TE_INT_SYST)
Example configuration in /BTI/TE_TVARV
