We’re at Atlassian Summit 2010 this week where we’ll be showing a new RPM feature that we’ve been working on with our friends over at Atlassian. We’ve built an integration module for JIRA that lets you monitor any Java web app (including JIRA) from within the JIRA console. Now you can have visibility into your application development project throughout the app lifecycle. You can manage projects, track bugs, and gain essential visibility into post-deployment application performance. The integration is available today and instructions for implementing it are included later in this post.
JIRA provides issue tracking and project tracking for software development teams to improve code quality and speed application development. Combining a clean, fast interface for capturing and organizing issues with customizable workflows, OpenSocial dashboards and a pluggable integration framework, JIRA is an essential tool for thousands of development teams worldwide. The addition of RPM’s production application monitoring capabilities in the JIRA console creates a closed-loop system for ensuring the delivery of superior-performing web applications by allowing development and deployment teams to track application development projects end-to-end from development through production.
Mike Cannon-Brookes, Atlassian co-founder and CEO said today “We have had a terrific time using New Relic in our own development. By offering around-the-clock application monitoring from within JIRA, we have found even greater control over our development projects throughout the application lifecycle.”
Atlassian customers, try New Relic RPM today!
Application monitoring with RPM in JIRA is available today and is easy to implement. Using Google’s OpenSocial API, we’ve built a gadget that you can use to watch your Java web app within the JIRA console. Current New Relic customers can get started by simply selecting the “API and Web Integration” tab under “Account Settings,” then choosing “Atlassian JIRA.” After that just follow theses instructions:
- Activate the Atlassian JIRA integration. You are then presented with a list of custom URLs for your applications
- Click on the clipboard icon corresponding to the application to monitor. This copies the URL to the clipboard.
- On the JIRA dashboard, click on the “+ Add Gadget” link.
- On the Gadget Directory popup window, click on the “Add Gadget to Directory” button.
- Paste the URL copied from step 4, and click “Add.” This adds the gadget to the directory.
- The new gadget will be highlighted on the page. Click on the “Add it Now” button for the new gadget, then click “Finished.”
Visit us at Atlassian Summit for a live demo
To see a live demonstration of RPM’s integration with JIRA, Atlassian Summit attendees can visit New Relic at Booth 4 the evening of June 9th or at anytime during the Summit on June 10th and 11th. New Relic CEO Lew Cirne will also demonstrate this capability during his LaunchPad session on Thursday June 10, at 10:30 am Pacific Time.
Atlassian JIRA customers not currently using RPM can take advantage of the integration by signing up for a free or paid RPM subscription, then following the instructions above. We are offering a special RPM promotion at the show this week so stop by Booth 4, say hello, and get a t-shirt while your at it.
