I would like a github EE user to be able to create/update a specific type of issue in JIRA...

...from a commit message and via the creation of an 'issue' in git

 

Shall I write my own plugin? Only if it allows me to expose a custom Jira REST API endpoint that I can hit from a github webhook.

 

Is there some other Jira construct that allows me to create a custom REST API endpoint in Jira?

Hello,

REST API is available in Jira. 

You can find available Jira REST API here:

https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/server/

If you want to create issue you should use POST /rest/api/2/issue. If you want to update issue you should use PUT /rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}

You can install Atlassian REST API browser plugin for making your life easier while palying with Jira REST API.

I know very well about the API thank you. But since I am not in control of the github webhook post, then I need to fabricate a REST API endpoint of my own design, that will consume the requests from the external system. And then yes, handle them by processing them into jira issue updates.

You can use Adaptivist Scriptrunner to develop a custom REST Endpoint. It will be less time consuming then developing a plugin.
