Learn more about the upcoming changes

To configure report settings:

  1. If you’re using the new navigation, select the Settings gear Gear in the top navigation bar. If you’re using the old navigation, select Administration in the left Nav menu.
  2. On the left side of the page, select Platform in the Settings section.
  3. Select the Reports tab.

The following settings can be configured on this tab:

  • External reports: Deny or allow the use of external reports in Jira Align. IFrames allow you to view embedded reports and other web content in Jira Align. If you're using the new navigation, external reports can be viewed in the Reports section of the sidebar. If you're using the old navigation, itheycan be viewed from the reports landing in the External Reports section of the Reports landing page.
    • Denying the use of external reports will permanently remove any existing approved URLs and/or URL patterns from the Approved URL and URL pattern list. It will also permanently delete any existing external reports.
    • Some sites do not work in an IFrame, including sites that have cross-scripting protection in their headers. For example, Google has
      x-frame-options: SAMEORIGIN
      x-xss-protection: 1; mode=block
      If these (or similar) are present in the response from the website, you will not be able to display the website in an external report in Jira Align. Both Google and Jira are two examples of this. For more information on whether a website will work in an IFrame, consult the documentation and support for the website you want to display.

  • Approved URL and URL pattern list: Add specific URLs and/or URL patterns that can be used in embedded reports. Only URLs and URL patterns included in the list can be displayed as IFrame content.

To add a new URL or URL pattern:

  1. Select Add URL; a modal displays.
  2. In the iFrame URL field, enter the URL or URL pattern to add to the Approved URL and URL pattern list.
  3. Click Save to add the URL or URL pattern as a list item.

To edit an existing URL or URL pattern, select the pencil Pencil_icon.png icon next to the item in the list. If you need to delete a URL or URL pattern, select the X icon next to the item. Any existing reports using the deleted URL or URL pattern will be permanently deleted.
