The Dashboard Hub Connector apps are special apps to easily and securely retrieve information from some Atlassian cloud products like Jira (Core, Software, Service Management), Confluence and Bitbucket (which includes Pipelines).
You do NOT need any Dashboard Hub Connector app to start using Dashboard Hub for Jira, but you do need a Dashboard Hub Connector app to connect certain products, namely:
External Jira instances. Install the free app Dashboard Hub Connector for Jira. There is no need to install a connector to display information from your current Jira instance, only if you want to retrieve information from a external Jira instance.
Confluence. Install the free app Dashboard Hub Connector for Confluence.
Bitbucket (which includes Pipelines). Install the free app Dashboard Hub Connector for Bitbucket.
See Dashboard Integrations: Datasources to check the different available integrations and what type of datasource is needed (read first Learn about Datasources if you have no clue what we are talking about).
Dashboard Hub Connector apps are free apps!
This app is a bridge to bring data from others other Atlassian products, keeping users and security privileges configured on every instance. This means that users can access data from other Atlassian cloud products only if their Atlassian accounts have the right and sufficient privileges.
Thus, it is possible to grant access to other datasources in a fast and easy way, while maintaining data security without additional configuration. The main characteristics are:
Data access managed on and by each Atlassian Cloud product instance.
It just requires an admin to install the app and you are ready to go!
It requires Dashboard Hub for Jira (paid app) to be installed in the main instance, but the Dashboard Hub Connector apps are free apps!
