This is necessary to enable 2-way integration between Jira and Microsoft Teams for Advanced Microsoft Teams Jira Connector app.
2-way integration provides data flow in both directions. Your team not only can receive data in Microsoft Teams from Jira, but also send data to Jira from Microsoft Teams.
If your team is going to use only 1-way integration and set up notifications with Incoming Webhook URLs please skip this step and proceed direcrly to notifications set up.
