EventListener - External docker app subscribing to Jira Cloud Issue Events - New/Update


So i need to build a small piece of middleware in Kotlin that will run in a Kubernetes container in our AWS infrastructure and i want it to listen for issue events such as new or update. SO basically a pub/sub model orchestrated by this small app (not a Jira app - not installed in Jira Cloud). Won’t be using webhooks - want to use events.

I’ll be doing this in Kotlin/Java. What dependencies should i use? Is there a design pattern i should use? and is there an example of someone doing this?

Some guidance on where to start would be great. Thanks.

Welcome to the Atlassian developer community @DaveChandler,

I don’t follow your requirements.

What do you mean by “events not webhooks”?
