JIRA is now available as three separate applications, JIRA Software, JIRA Service Desk, and JIRA Core. For more information on administering these applications, refer to the Administering JIRA Applications documentation.

Adding the Clover Coverage Gadget

The Clover Coverage gadget displays the Clover coverage of plans from a particular Bamboo server.

What does it look like?

The Clover Coverage gadget should appear as follows on the dashboard:

Your JIRA administrator must have configured the Bamboo plugin on your JIRA server (), if you want to add the Clover Coverage gadget to your dashboard. If you have added multiple Bamboo servers in JIRA there will be one Clover Coverage gadget available per server, e.g. 'Clover Coverage Gadget from', 'Clover Coverage Gadget from', etc. ()

Adding the 'Clover Coverage' gadget to your Dashboard

  1. Go to your JIRA dashboard and click 'Add Gadget'.
  2. The 'Gadget Directory' will appear. Locate the 'Clover Coverage' gadget and click the 'Add it Now' button. Then click the 'Finished' button at the bottom of the Gadget Directory. The 'Clover Coverage' gadget will appear on your dashboard as follows, ready for you to configure.
  3. Click the arrow in the top right corner of the gadget to open the configuration menu and click 'Edit'. Configure the information to be displayed on your gadget as follows:
    • 'Select Plans' — Select the Bamboo plans for which you would like code coverage information displayed on your gadget.
    • 'Refresh Interval' — Select how often you would like the information on the gadget to update.
  4. Click the 'Save' button.

To move the gadget to a different position on the dashboard, simply drag-and-drop. You can also change the look and behavior of the gadget.

Authorising JIRA to Display Bamboo Gadgets

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.

    Looks like the Clover Coverage Gadget is broken when using JIRA 4.2 and Bamboo 2.7.1:

       The resource /rest/api/latest/build/-LATEST.json, cannot be found.

    It should probably be pointing to:

      It should be <bamboo_URL>/rest/api/latest/build/<PLAN_NAME>.json
