CLI support for JIRA interaction
This plugin provides command line tools for interacting with Atlassian's JIRA bug tracking software.
The interaction is all done through the web. No local installation of JIRA is necessary.
In this document, "JIRA" refers to the JIRA issue tracking server, and
jira refers to the command this plugin supplies.
This plugin supplies one command,
jira, through which all its features are exposed. Most forms of this command open a JIRA page in your web browser.
jira # performs the default action jira new # opens a new issue jira dashboard # opens your JIRA dashboard jira reported [username] # queries for issues reported by a user jira assigned [username] # queries for issues assigned to a user jira myissues # queries for you own issues jira branch # opens an existing issue matching the current branch name jira ABC-123 # opens an existing issue jira ABC-123 m # opens an existing issue for adding a comment
These calling forms are for developers' use, and may change at any time.
jira dumpconfig # displays the effective configuration
The URL for your JIRA instance is set by
$JIRA_URL or a
.jira-url file in the base of your project. You can also set
$JIRA_URL in your
~/.zshrc or put a
.jira-url in your home directory. A
.jira-url in the current directory takes precedence, so you can make per-project customizations.
The same goes with
$JIRA_PREFIX. These control the prefix added to all issue IDs, which differentiates projects within a JIRA instance.
cd to/my/project echo "https://jira.atlassian.com" >> .jira-url
(Note: The current implementation only looks in the current directory for
.jira-prefix, not up the path, so if you are in a subdirectory of your project, it will fall back to your default JIRA URL. This will probably change in the future though.)
$JIRA_URL- Your JIRA instance's URL
$JIRA_NAME- Your JIRA username; used as the default user for
$JIRA_PREFIX- Prefix added to issue ID arguments
$JIRA_RAPID_BOARD- Set to
trueif you use Rapid Board
$JIRA_DEFAULT_ACTION- Action to do when
jirais called with no arguments; defaults to "new"
Your default web browser, as determined by how
http:// URLs, is used for interacting with the JIRA instance. If you change your system's URL handler associations, it will change the browser that
