About Arc-JIRA

This package provides Arcanist extension that allows integration between Differential code review tool and JIRA issue tracker.


Arcanist configuration

Put arc_jira_lib directory somewhere inside your project and update your .arcconfig to look similar to this one:

  "project_id" : "myproject",
  "conduit_uri" : "http://my.phabricator.instance/",
  "phutil_libraries" : {
    "arc_jira_lib" : "somewhere/arc_jira_lib"
  "arcanist_configuration" : "ArcJIRAConfiguration",
  "jira_api_url" : "http://my.jira.instance/"

Apache projects

For Apache projects jira_api_url should be set to

Phabricator configuration

Arc-JIRA requires that used Phabricator instance has a user named JIRA with email pointing to email interface of your JIRA instance. This user will be used to push comments from Differential to JIRA.

If you want to automatically attach patches to JIRA revisions when someone updates a diff in Differential, you just have to set metamta.differential.attach-patches option to true in Phabricator configuration file.

Apache projects

Email interface address of Apache JIRA instance is

JIRA configuration

JIRA will automatically create a user for your Phabricator instance, first time it gets email from it. If you don't have administrator access to used JIRA instance you won't be able to change name of the Phabricator user. It is a good idea to send an email manually (using sendmail for example) from Phabricator email address (set in Phabricator configuration as metamta.default-address) before using Arc-JIRA so you can set the user name. Example email will look like this:

To: jira@my.jira.instance
From: Phabricator user name <noreply@my.phabricator.instance>
Subject: [jira] [PROJECT-123] Create new JIRA user.

Setting Phabricator user name.

where PROJECT-123 is a name of some JIRA issue.


Arc-JIRA workflow differs only minimally from the standard Arcanist workflow.

First time you issue arc diff you should add --jira switch with JIRA issue ID, for example arc diff --jira PROJECT-123. That's all, other steps are the same as in standard Arcanist workflow.
