Integrating BMC Helix Innovation Studio applications with third-party applications by using BMC Helix iPaaS, powered by Jitterbit
As a developer or an application business analyst, you can use BMC Helix iPaaS, powered by Jitterbit, to integrate BMC Helix Innovation Studio applications with third-party applications. BMC Helix iPaaS is an Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), used to connect BMC products with on-premises, cloud, and legacy third-party applications. Learn more about BMC Helix iPaaS in documentation.
In BMC Helix iPaaS, define the APIs that you want to use to establish a connection to transfer data between BMC Helix Innovation Studio and an external third-party application. You can then reuse these APIs in the business processes of your applications without having to rebuild the integration for each application or use.
For example, if you want to connect to a JIRA REST service to get details of a JIRA issue in your application, you can connect to BMC Helix iPaaS and add the APIs required to connect to JIRA. After you add the APIs, you can leverage the iPaaS Jitterbit activity element in a process to access the details of the Jira issue in your process.
