Jira Destination
Configuring Jira as an alert destination in your Panther Console


Destinations are integrations that receive alerts from rules, policies, system health notifications, and rule errors. Panther supports configuring Jira as the destination where you will receive alerts.
When an alert is forwarded to a Jira Destination, a bug, story, or task is created and assigned to the specified assignee in the specified project.
