Go client library for Atlassian Jira.

Go client library for Atlassian Jira

Features

  • Authentication (HTTP Basic, OAuth, Session Cookie)
  • Create and retrieve issues
  • Create and retrieve issue transitions (status updates)
  • Call every API endpoint of the Jira, even if it is not directly implemented in this library

This package is not Jira API complete (yet), but you can call every API endpoint you want. See Call a not implemented API endpoint how to do this. For all possible API endpoints of Jira have a look at latest Jira REST API documentation.

Requirements

  • Go >= 1.8
  • Jira v6.3.4 & v7.1.2.

Installation

It is go gettable

go get github.com/andygrunwald/go-jira

For stable versions you can use one of our tags with gopkg.in. E.g.

package main

import (
	jira "gopkg.in/andygrunwald/go-jira.v1"
)
...

(optional) to run unit / example tests:

cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/andygrunwald/go-jira
go test -v ./...

API

Please have a look at the GoDoc documentation for a detailed API description.

The latest Jira REST API documentation was the base document for this package.

Examples

Further a few examples how the API can be used. A few more examples are available in the GoDoc examples section.

Get a single issue

Lets retrieve MESOS-3325 from the Apache Mesos project.

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"github.com/andygrunwald/go-jira"
)

func main() {
	jiraClient, _ := jira.NewClient(nil, "https://issues.apache.org/jira/")
	issue, _, _ := jiraClient.Issue.Get("MESOS-3325", nil)

	fmt.Printf("%s: %+v\n", issue.Key, issue.Fields.Summary)
	fmt.Printf("Type: %s\n", issue.Fields.Type.Name)
	fmt.Printf("Priority: %s\n", issue.Fields.Priority.Name)

	// MESOS-3325: Running mesos-slave@0.23 in a container causes slave to be lost after a restart
	// Type: Bug
	// Priority: Critical
}

Authentication

The go-jira library does not handle most authentication directly. Instead, authentication should be handled within an http.Client. That client can then be passed into the NewClient function when creating a jira client.

For convenience, capability for basic and cookie-based authentication is included in the main library.

Token (Jira on Atlassian Cloud)

Token-based authentication uses the basic authentication scheme, with a user-generated API token in place of a user's password. You can generate a token for your user here. Additional information about Atlassian Cloud API tokens can be found here.

A more thorough, runnable example is provided in the examples directory.

func main() {
	tp := jira.BasicAuthTransport{
		Username: "username",
		Password: "token",
	}

	client, err := jira.NewClient(tp.Client(), "https://my.jira.com")

	u, _, err := client.User.Get("some_user")

	fmt.Printf("\nEmail: %v\nSuccess!\n", u.EmailAddress)
}

Basic (self-hosted Jira)

Password-based API authentication works for self-hosted Jira only, and has been deprecated for users of Atlassian Cloud.

The above token authentication example may be used, substituting a user's password for a generated token.

Authenticate with OAuth

If you want to connect via OAuth to your Jira Cloud instance checkout the example of using OAuth authentication with Jira in Go by @Lupus.

For more details have a look at the issue #56.

Create an issue

Example how to create an issue.

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"github.com/andygrunwald/go-jira"
)

func main() {
	base := "https://my.jira.com"
	tp := jira.BasicAuthTransport{
		Username: "username",
		Password: "token",
	}

	jiraClient, err := jira.NewClient(tp.Client(), base)
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	i := jira.Issue{
		Fields: &jira.IssueFields{
			Assignee: &jira.User{
				Name: "myuser",
			},
			Reporter: &jira.User{
				Name: "youruser",
			},
			Description: "Test Issue",
			Type: jira.IssueType{
				Name: "Bug",
			},
			Project: jira.Project{
				Key: "PROJ1",
			},
			Summary: "Just a demo issue",
		},
	}
	issue, _, err := jiraClient.Issue.Create(&i)
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	fmt.Printf("%s: %+v\n", issue.Key, issue.Fields.Summary)
}

Change an issue status

This is how one can change an issue status. In this example, we change the issue from "To Do" to "In Progress."

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"github.com/andygrunwald/go-jira"
)

func main() {
	base := "https://my.jira.com"
	tp := jira.BasicAuthTransport{
		Username: "username",
		Password: "token",
	}

	jiraClient, err := jira.NewClient(tp.Client(), base)
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	issue, _, _ := jiraClient.Issue.Get("FART-1", nil)
	currentStatus := issue.Fields.Status.Name
	fmt.Printf("Current status: %s\n", currentStatus)

	var transitionID string
	possibleTransitions, _, _ := jiraClient.Issue.GetTransitions("FART-1")
	for _, v := range possibleTransitions {
		if v.Name == "In Progress" {
			transitionID = v.ID
			break
		}
	}

	jiraClient.Issue.DoTransition("FART-1", transitionID)
	issue, _, _ = jiraClient.Issue.Get(testIssueID, nil)
	fmt.Printf("Status after transition: %+v\n", issue.Fields.Status.Name)
}

Call a not implemented API endpoint

Not all API endpoints of the Jira API are implemented into go-jira. But you can call them anyway: Lets get all public projects of Atlassian`s Jira instance.

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"github.com/andygrunwald/go-jira"
)

func main() {
	base := "https://my.jira.com"
	tp := jira.BasicAuthTransport{
		Username: "username",
		Password: "token",
	}

	jiraClient, err := jira.NewClient(tp.Client(), base)
	req, _ := jiraClient.NewRequest("GET", "rest/api/2/project", nil)

	projects := new([]jira.Project)
	_, err = jiraClient.Do(req, projects)
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	for _, project := range *projects {
		fmt.Printf("%s: %s\n", project.Key, project.Name)
	}

	// ...
	// BAM: Bamboo
	// BAMJ: Bamboo Jira Plugin
	// CLOV: Clover
	// CONF: Confluence
	// ...
}

Implementations

Code structure

The code structure of this package was inspired by google/go-github.

There is one main part (the client). Based on this main client the other endpoints, like Issues or Authentication are extracted in services. E.g. IssueService or AuthenticationService. These services own a responsibility of the single endpoints / usecases of Jira.

Contribution

We ❤️ PR's

Contribution, in any kind of way, is highly welcome! It doesn't matter if you are not able to write code. Creating issues or holding talks and help other people to use go-jira is contribution, too! A few examples:

  • Correct typos in the README / documentation
  • Reporting bugs
  • Implement a new feature or endpoint
  • Sharing the love of go-jira and help people to get use to it

If you are new to pull requests, checkout Collaborating on projects using issues and pull requests / Creating a pull request.

Dependency management

go-jira uses go modules for dependency management. After cloning the repo, it's easy to make sure you have the correct dependencies by running go mod tidy.

For adding new dependencies, updating dependencies, and other operations, the Daily workflow is a good place to start.

Sandbox environment for testing

Jira offers sandbox test environments at http://go.atlassian.com/cloud-dev.

You can read more about them at https://developer.atlassian.com/blog/2016/04/cloud-ecosystem-dev-env/.
