Custom field. Select bitbucket branches from drop down list when create issue



Is there a way or script to list bitbucket branch into a dropdown list that related to a Project Key.

The plan is that when create Jira Issue bug, we can select a branch from the list and it will appear in detail section. 

Product used is JIRA Server & Bitbucket Server.

Thanks in advance.

Let us know if you have solution for this. We are looking for a similar functionality.

Hello @Prashant Bagewadi 

You can accomplish this with the app Elements Connect (previously called nFeed).
(Disclaimer: I am the product manager of Elements Connect, I work for Elements)

Here is how:

  • Create an Application link between Jira and Bitbucket (preferred) OR create an Elements Connect datasource of type URL that point to Bitbucket REST API - Read the doc
  • Create an Elements Connect field of type "Live text" or "Snapshot text" (see the difference)
  • Configure the field, select the "Bitbucket" datasource
  • Field configuration is:
    • Query:
      where  PROJECT-KEY is the bitbucket project key and REPO-NAME is the bitbucket repository nam
    • Root element:
    • 1 json column:
      • Name: displayId - JSON Path: $.displayId
    • Key: 0 (if you selected "Live text")
    • Editor: Autocomplete (can be any type expect "Read only")
    • Template:

This is the configuration of a bitbucket repository picker. The text typed by the user in the autocomplete field is used to filter the query. ($userInput variable).

You can adapt this configuration to your needs and explore the Bitbucket configuration here:

Hope it helps
