Jira must not be a story or epic.
Jira must be in-process status.

  1. configure JIRA access
  2. ("projectKey" can contain multiple comma-separated JIRA project keys like "projectKey = 'TST,ARP'".
  3. If you specify multiple keys, the commit will be accepted if at least one project listed accepts it.
  4. Or you can specify "projectKey = '*'" to force using the global commit acceptance settings if you don't
  5. want to specify any exact project key.)
    jiraBaseURL = 'https://jira.crossview.com'
    jiraLogin = 'SN'
    jiraPassword = 'TESTABC'
    projectKey = 'ABC'
  1. configure svnlook path
    svnlookPath = '/usr/local/bin/svnlook'
    #svnlookPath = 'C:\\Progra~1\\svn-win32-1.4.0\\bin
  1. get committer
    f = os.popen(svnlookPath + ' author ' + sys.argv[1] + ' --transaction ' + sys.argv[2])
    committer = f.read()
    if f.close():
    raise 1
    committer = committer.rstrip("\n\r")
    print >> sys.stderr, 'Unable to get committer with svnlook.'
  1. get commit message
    f = os.popen(svnlookPath + ' log ' + sys.argv[1] + ' --transaction ' + sys.argv[2])
    commitMessage = f.read()
    if f.close():
    raise 1
    commitMessage = commitMessage.rstrip('\n\r')
    print >> sys.stderr, 'Unable to get commit message with svnlook.'
  1. print arguments
    print >> sys.stderr, 'Committer: ' + committer
    print >> sys.stderr, 'Commit message: "' + commitMessage + '"'
  1. invoke JIRA web service
    s = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy(urlparse.urljoin(jiraBaseURL, '/rpc/xmlrpc'))
    acceptance, comment = s.commitacc.acceptCommit(jiraLogin, jiraPassword, committer, projectKey, commitMessage).split('|');
    acceptance, comment = ['false', 'Unable to connect to the JIRA server at "' + jiraBaseURL + '".']

if acceptance == 'true':
print >> sys.stderr, 'Commit accepted.'
print >> sys.stderr, 'Commit rejected: ' + comment

Save the programming and use the Commit Policy Plugin.

Unlike the Commit Acceptance Plugin, it can check if the issue keys included in the commit message are matching a JQL. For instance you can use a check with this JQL, and this requires exactly zero programming:

type NOT IN (Story, Epic) AND status = In-process
