External feeds provide a read-only set of items based on parameters
that you define when the feed is created. Items from an external data feed are
not added to
they are only displayed on your Kanban board for you to view and track.
To use an external feed for your Kanban board:
Open the Kanban
New Feed wizard:
- From the Kanban Boards page, click
Create Kanban Board. Click New, and then
- Click the user icon in the upper right corner, select
Settings, and then select the
Feeds page. Click
New Feed, and then select
External Data tab, select the data source that
you want to use for this feed. Use the drop-down list to filter by application
if there are multiple applications available in your current context. If a
documentation URL has been specified for the data source, you can click the
help icon for more information about the service.
Parameters tab, configure parameters and
values as necessary to customize the data returned by the feed. You can sort
the list by parameter or search for a parameter by name. You can also add new
parameters and values if they are not currently provided.
Save Feed tab, provide the following
information for your feed:
Provide a name for your feed.
Set the feed as private or public. Private feeds are visible
only to the author; public feeds can be viewed by others users, but only the
author and administrators can modify public feeds.
Note: If you plan to share a view with other users, the feeds in
that view must be set to public.
Text provided here is shown to users when they select feeds
for their views.
Save your changes.
You can now add the feed to a Kanban board. If you created the feed
while you were editing a Kanban board, the feed is automatically added to the
board when you save your changes.
