Authorising JIRA to Display Bamboo Gadgets

Icon
When you add this gadget to your JIRA dashboard, you may see a message similar to this:

The website (container) you have placed this gadget on is unauthorised. Please contact your system administator to have it approved.

To fix this problem, you will need to configure your Bamboo site to allow JIRA to draw information from it via gadgets on the JIRA dashboard. To do this, your JIRA administrator first needs to define your JIRA site as an OAuth consumer in Bamboo. You will then be required to perform a once-off authentication before your gadget will display correctly.
