Introduction

Effective issue triaging is crucial for security teams. This process ensures that all security tasks are tracked, prioritized, and completed on time. This helps in maintaining the security posture and managing the overall risk of the organization. To support security teams in this endeavor for all API Security issues, Akto lets you integrate with the most common project management tool- Jira by Atlassian!

What is Jira?

Jira is a popular project management tool used by development and security teams worldwide. It helps manage work efficiently, track issues, and provide an overall view of the project status.

But what does it have to do with API security? Well, quite a lot!

Why should you integrate with Jira?

Jira project

Integrating Jira with your API security process can provide several benefits.

It can help track and manage security issues just like any other project task. When a security issue is detected, it can be logged as a task in Jira, assigned to the right team member, and tracked until it's resolved. This ensures that no security issue is overlooked and that it's addressed in a timely manner.

Moreover, Jira's powerful reporting features can help teams understand their API security posture better. They can track trends, identify common vulnerabilities, and measure the effectiveness of their security measures.

Integrating Jira into your API security process can not only help manage security issues more efficiently but also provide better visibility and understanding of security status of your APIs.
