Global settings

What are the global settings?

Most of Elements Publish configuration is done through recipes. However, some settings are common to all recipes. These are refered as global settings and can be configured in a dedicated page.

This page can be accessed through the app main menu.


This section lets you configure how the Elements Publish public API can be used.


Use this button to create an API token that can be used for API authentication.

Please note that, once created, a token can only be seen once. However, it is possible to create another token, which will automatically revoke the previous one.


Selecting an API actor is mandatory to use the public REST API, as all action triggered through the API will be done impersonating this Jira user. Consequently, only users with the required Jira permissions should be chosen as an API actor.
