  4. The gadget should now display on your JIRA dashboard but will not be authorized. Click on the "Click here to approve access now" link.
  5. If you are currently logged into Enterprise Tester the authorization screen will appear.  If you are not logged into Enterprise Tester you will need to log in first, then the authorization screen will appear.
