@viquaralam - As the error message says, have you tried granting permission. This is basically a permission issue. Extension should have shown popup while trying to integrate the first time.

Have a look at #214 where I have already explained the steps to manually grant permission. Refer to heading "Check if Permission is granted for Jira Assistant:" in the above mentioned ticket.

Another simple option in chrome is to do the following.

  • Open your Jira site and then right click on the extension icon
  • Either select "On all sites" or select your site from this option:
