See Favro Jira Proxy for general considerations when using the Favro Jira Proxy.


Download the Favro Jira Proxy:

Chose a location where you want to run the Favro Jira Proxy and create the folder. Run cmd.exe  as Administrator (right click on it in start menu) and run:

mkdir "C:\Program Files\FavroJiraProxy"
cd /d "C:\Program Files\FavroJiraProxy"

Extract the distribution you downloaded in the folder you just created. Change the version number to the version you just downloaded. If you have an older version of Windows installed you might have to download a tool to extract the tar.gz archive. For example 7-Zip.

tar -xf "%USERPROFILE%\Downloads\FavroJiraProxy-1.0.17.tar.gz"

Add the integration to run as a daemon. This will automatically create the necessary files depending on your operating system and then launch the daemon.

FavroJiraProxy.exe --daemon-add


User your favorite editor to edit the configuration file for the proxy.

cd /d "C:\Program Files\FavroJiraProxy"
notepad FavroJiraProxyConfig.json

You can paste this example config as a starting point.

"JiraURL": "",
"JiraUser": "favrointegrationproxy",
"JiraUserPassword": "SECRET"

After you have edited the configuration file you need to restart the Favro Jira Proxy for changes to take effect.

FavroJiraProxy.exe --daemon-restart

To check your configuration for errors check the contents of the log file.

type Log\FavroJiraProxy.log

See Sync Jira issues to Favro for how to connect Favro to your Jira Server now that you have configured the Favro Jira Proxy.


To upgrade the server simply stop the daemon extract the new package and start it again.

cd /d "C:\Program Files\FavroJiraProxy"
FavroJiraProxy.exe --daemon-stop
tar -xf "%USERPROFILE%\Downloads\FavroJiraProxy-1.0.17.tar.gz"
FavroJiraProxy.exe --daemon-startYou can find more information about our Jira integration on our website.
