A collection of tools for managing patch-based workflows between Git and JIRA, designed for use with Apache's JIRA installation.



git-jira-attacher exports patches from Git using git format-patch, then attaches them to a JIRA issue using the SOAP API.

Run without arguments for usage. GIT_RANGE is a commit range, like master..HEAD. git-jira-attacher expects commit messages to begin with (e.g.) PROJECT-123. in order to identify the relevant issue. If all of the commits apply to a single issue, only one needs to have the tag. Otherwise, every commit needs a tag.


This utility imports patches created by git-format-patch or git-jira-attacher (see above). You can think of this script as an analog to git-am(1).

Run without arguments for usage.


This utility imports patches attached to a Jira issue. You can think of this script as an analog to git-apply(1) or patch(1).

Run without arguments for usage.


Each of the above utilities accepts arguments for your Jira username, and each interactively prompts for the password, but it is possible to configure one or both of these values to keep from typing them repeatedly.

Create or edit the file ~/.git-jira-tools and set values for username and password. For example:

username = jsmith
password = 4unkym0nk3y
