Call Jenkins job through jira by passing issue key in the URL through custom post function

I am new to Jenkins and jira tools. I am trying to call Jenkins job from jira tool when ticket has been closed using custom post function(using Groovy script) in jira and I want to pass issue key in the Jenkins URL but I am unable to do that. I tried with webhook but I was unable to do it.  Can any one please give me suggestion in this problem.

i have a sample groovy script to do the same


import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option;
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager=ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager();

CustomField customField_component=customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("component");
CustomField customField_version=customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("version");

Issue issue = issue;

def component=issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField_component);

def version=issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField_version);
def Issueid=issue.getKey()

def curl = "C:/Softwares/curl/curl.exe http://Jenkins_job_url/buildWithParameters?Components=$comp&Version=$version&Issueid=$Issueid"
def output = curl.execute().text



here Component and version are the custom field values.... if you are good in groovy, you can modify the script accordingly as per your requrement

Thanks Arju,
I am new to groovy script and I used the following script to trigger jenkins job
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
def launch= ["wget", "--auth-no-challenge", "--user=username", "--password=password", "${issue.key}"].execute().text;
println launch

this will trigger when the issue has been closed. I need status of issue and assignee to pass in jenkins url.
Any suggestions .

Hi Arjun,


I'm using below script to call the jenkins build but it's having problem when I use https  protocol for jenkins url.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.view.CustomFieldParams
import groovy.json.JsonSlurper
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

import org.apache.log4j.Category

def Category log = Category.getInstance("invokeJenkinsBuild.groovy")

try {
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def key = issue.getKey()
def domainApplication = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Domain/Application")) as CustomFieldParams
def values = domainApplication.toString().replace("{","").replace("}","").split(", ")
def domain = values[0].toString().split('=')[1]
def application = values[1].toString().split('=')[1]
def svnRevision = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("SVN Revision"))
def svnLocation = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("SVN Directory")).toString()
def releaseVersion = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Release Version"))
def developmentVersion = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Development Version"))

log.debug("Jenkins domain code: $domain")
log.debug("Jenkins application code: $application")

if (svnLocation != "trunk") {
svnLocation = svnLocation + "/" + issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("SVN Sub-Directory"))

def performRelease = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Perform Release")).getValue().toString()

if (performRelease == "Yes") {
buildType = "release"
} else {
buildType = "snapshot"

def jenkinsJob = ""
def params = "SVN_REVISION=$svnRevision&ISSUE_NUMBER=$key&DOMAIN=$domain&APPLICATION=$application&SVN_LOCATION=$svnLocation&MAVEN_BUILD_TYPE=$buildType&RELEASE_VERSION=$releaseVersion&DEVELOPMENT_VERSION=$developmentVersion"
//def jenkinsBuildUrl = new URL("$jenkinsJob" + "buildByToken/buildWithParameters?job=xxxxxxxx$domain-$application&token=JIRA")
def jenkinsBuildUrl = new URL("$jenkinsJob" + "buildByToken/buildWithParameters?job=xxxxxxxx&token=JIRA")
log.debug("Jenkins build code: $jenkinsBuildUrl")
def connection = jenkinsBuildUrl.openConnection()

log.debug("LCM number is $key")
log.debug("Jenkins connection code: $connection")


def responseCode = connection.getResponseCode()

log.debug("Jenkins response code: $responseCode")
if (responseCode == 404) {
throw new InvalidInputException("No Jenkins automated build job was found for this Domain/Application. Please contact.")

} catch (e) {
throw new InvalidInputException(e.getMessage())

Does this work with JIRA 4.3 version? I have written similar script, but it is not executing job in Jenkins
