AlienApp for Jira Orchestration

As USM Anywhere surfaces events, alarms, and vulnerabilities, your team determines which items require the opening of a new Jira issue. Rather than manually opening each issue in the Jira UI and entering the relevant alarm, event, or vulnerability information, you can use the AlienApp for Jira response actions to enhance and simplify your workflow.

Action Function

Create a new issue from an alarmAlarms provide notification of an event or sequence of events that require attention or investigation.

Run this action to generate a new Jira issue directly from an alarm.

This action is available when you launch a response action directly from an alarm or a response action in an orchestration rule.

Create a new issue from a vulnerabilityA known issue or weakness in a system, procedure, internal control, software package, or hardware that could be used to compromise security.

Create a new issue from an eventAny traffic or data exchange detected by AlienVault products through a Sensor, or through external devices such as a firewall.

Run this action to generate a new Jira issue directly from an event.

Create a new issue from event based orchestration rule

Run this action to generate a new Jira issue directly from an orchestration rule that triggers from a matching event.

Upon execution of a response action, USM Anywhere generates the Jira issue and passes the associated information to that new issue.

Note: Before launching a Jira response action or creating a Jira response action rule, the AlienApp for Jira must be enabled and connected to your Jira instance. For more information, see Configuring the AlienApp for Jira.
