Lewe Jira Connector


The Lewe Jira Connector plugin allows you to connect to a Jira host (Server, Data Center or Cloud) and display issue information from there on your WordPress site.

In the backend, you can create one or more Jira hosts to connect to. After setting them up, you can use shortcodes to retrieve issue or filter information from these hosts and display them on your WordPress pages and posts.

Lewe Jira Connector supports Bootstrap colors. If you do not like the Jira status category colors, you can replace them with a Bootstrap color.

The button, inline and panel displays of Jira issues are also based on popular Bootstrap visuals like alerts or badges.

Jira filter results are displayed in a table that allows column sorting.

Shortcode Examples

[jco-issue host="1072" key="MYPRJ-112" format="button"]

[jco-filter host="1072" jql="project=MYPRJ AND resolution=unresolved"]
