Frequently asked questions

Why is the Connector installation taking a long time?

Click here to expand...

This may happen if you have a large instance and may also happen if you are upgrading from a previous version. We advise you to wait it out especially if your instance contains large amounts of data.

What does Dual Licensing mean?

Click here to expand...

This add-on supports Dual Licensing. This means you may choose to use this add-on by purchasing either a ServiceRocket license or an Atlassian Marketplace license.

If you have an existing valid ServiceRocket license and want to switch to an Atlassian Marketplace license, you need to uninstall the ServiceRocket license first.

Likewise, if you have an Atlassian Marketplace license and want to switch to a ServiceRocket license, you will need to uninstall the Atlassian Marketplace license as well.

I have questions about purchasing licenses.

If you have questions about our add-on licenses, consult our Purchasing FAQ page .

What if the Jira instance can not access the Atlassian marketplace?

Click here to expand...

MyAtlassian is a site to manage your Atlassian-related licensing and orders. If you have a valid license for the designated add-on, the license key would be stored on MyAtlassian.

Copy the license key and manually paste the key in the Universal Plugin Manager:

  1. Go to the Cog Icon > Add-ons.

  2. Then, expand the add-on details and paste the license key in the text box.

Before proceeding with the Connector configuration

There are several things you should consider when configuring the Connector. We offer 3 different types of functionality for linking Jira with Salesforce and you should consider which one best suits your needs before proceeding.
