How to get a list of Jira issues related to a branch



We use the Jira - BitBucket integration.

So, every GIT commit is connected to one or many Jira issues.

Assuming I would like to query all Jira issues that are" connected" to a branch.

Or, more technical terms: Query all Jira issues that are linked to a commits that are reachable by specific branch.


How can I get this information from Jira?

Hi @yaron n


You will be able to perform Advanced JQL searching on development fields reference. Please see the page Advanced searching - development fields reference

Vijay ,


Thanks for the quick response.

This will work only of I have created the brach from Jira from the development tool section?

My use case is that users creates branches using git commands.

Then apply the Jira ID at the commit message.

Hi @Vijay Ramamurthy _Appfire_  

Can you please check this comment and response?



Hi @yaron n

Yes, the above JQL search will work only if you have your DVCS connected to your JIRA instance, basically we are performing search based on the development panel available in JIRA issue and JIRA will not be able to identify the issues if you do not have them configured and search and provide you the required results.

Unfortunately I am not aware of any other native method which will allow you to get your required results.
