Create an agent-based scanning integration for Jira Cloud

Setting up the Veracode Software Composition Analysis agent-based scanning integration for Jira Cloud allows your organization to create Jira issues from within the Veracode Platform.

If you also use Veracode Static Analysis, Veracode recommends you use the Veracode Integration for Jira Cloud, which offers additional features and greater customization. To integrate your agent-based scan findings with Veracode Integration for Jira Cloud, you must link your project to an application profile in the Veracode Platform.

  7. Click Create New Link.

  10. From the Application Type dropdown menu, select Generic Application.

  11. Click Continue.

  12. Click the pencil icon to the right of the newly created application.
