Integrating Extension Designer with Third-party Software

You can integrate Extension Designer with third-party software, such as issue tracking systems, to increase team productivity and streamline software quality processes.

This article demonstrates how Extension Designer can communicate with JIRA using http request and http response nodes. In this simple flow, Extension Designer will query JIRA for bugs and display the PR count in a DTP pie chart grouped by priority.

The following steps describe the overall process:
1. Prepare a query to filter the JIRA issues.
2. Search for JIRA issues using http request node.
3. Transform the data for Pie chart.
4. Create a Pie chart.
5. Add Pie chart in DTP to view the results.
