Build Status

This is a command line client for jira, because no one likes their terrible interface.

Getting Started

  • Install the module with: npm install -g jira-cli
  • Run it with jira

What does it do?

  • Lists all a user's issues
  • List all a user's projects
  • Finds an issue by Key (AB-123) or Id (123456)
  • Opens an issue
  • Allows user to add a new ticket to different projects
  • Transitions an issue (shows all available transition states)
  • Adds a worklog to an issue
  • Allow searching to be limited by project id


  • MOAR testing


GitHub Documentation


jira -l

jira -f AB-123


If you use https: for jira, add "protocol": "https:" to your .jiraclirc.json If your ssl certs are also self-signed add: "strictSSL": false to your .jiraclirc.json


Using jasmine-node with grunt currently. Tests are a bit silly, but they helped me learn jasmine spies. So that's good.


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
