Programmatically connect to Bitbucket/Bamboo from Jira for REST API use

Hi All,

As far as i saw, many people (include me) use REST API calls from Jira to GET/POST data from/to Bitbucket/Bamboo.

Most people are using hard coded credentials with Base64 Encode.

However, putting your credentials  hard coded (even in Base64 Encode format) is not the best practice, so i will share here a way that many users are not familiar with.

By using the following, you will be able to perform your REST API calls from Jira without putting credentials.

This will use the current login user credentials in Jira, to connect to Bitbucket/Bamboo

import com.atlassian.applinks.api.ApplicationLinkRequestFactory;
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.ApplicationLink;
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.ApplicationLinkService;
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.application.bamboo.BambooApplicationType;
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.application.bitbucket.BitbucketApplicationType;

In order to use this technique you will have to link Bitbucket/Bamboo to your Jira link applications.

And here is an example for how to use it:

/*to get the Bitbucket link*/
private
ApplicationLink getPrimaryBitbucketLinkLink() {
ApplicationLinkService applicationLinkService = ComponentLocator.getComponent(ApplicationLinkService.class);
final ApplicationLink bitbucketLink = applicationLinkService.getPrimaryApplicationLink(BitbucketApplicationType.class);

return bitbucketLink;
}

/*to get the Bamboo link*/
private ApplicationLink getPrimaryBambooLink() {
ApplicationLinkService applicationLinkService = ComponentLocator.getComponent(ApplicationLinkService.class);
final ApplicationLink bambooLink = applicationLinkService.getPrimaryApplicationLink(BambooApplicationType.class);

return bambooLink;
}

/*REST API GET request*/
private JSONObject getJsonData(ApplicationLink applicationLink, String restURL) throws Exception {
ApplicationLink appLink = applicationLink;
ApplicationLinkRequestFactory authenticatedRequestFactory = appLink.createAuthenticatedRequestFactory();

final Response[] res = new Response[1];

authenticatedRequestFactory
.createRequest(Request.MethodType.GET, restURL)
.addHeader("Content-Type", "application/json")
.execute(new ResponseHandler<Response>() {
@Override
public void handle(Response response) {
if (response.getStatusCode() != HttpURLConnection.HTTP_OK) {
try {
throw new Exception(response.getResponseBodyAsString());
} catch (Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
res[0] = response;
}
});

JSONObject jsonObject = new JSONObject(res[0].getResponseBodyAsString());

return jsonObject;
}

/*call the getJsonData function to get data from where we want*/
getJsonData(getPrimaryBitbucketLinkLink(), "/rest/api/latest/....")

 

Hope this will serve you well as it served me.

Feel free to reply my article and ask questions or share your thought with my methods.

 

Thanks,

Thanks for this - I'd been banging my head against the right way to make rest calls via the applinks for way too long today!

Nir Haimov Community Leader Jan 24, 2019

I was looking days till i figured it out.

That's why i felt like i have to post this article .

Glad it helped you :)

Hi Nir Haimov,

 Thank you for sharing this, if I can ask some more help, 

our requirement is to fill a JIRA custom field by accessing Bitbucket;  compare two tags in Bitbucket using REST API and get the JIRA issues used to commit between those tags. This fill may be required during a workflow transition.

So, how I can add your REST End point to a field behavior or to a Listener which will fill the JIRA custom field?

Thanks in advance

with warm regards

PS: in another use case I have one behavior to a single line text custom field like this

getFieldByName("Product 1 Branch").convertToSingleSelect([
ajaxOptions: [
url : getBaseUrl() + "/rest/scriptrunner/latest/custom/frnversions",
query: true,
formatResponse: "general"
]
])

 

which is accessing own JIRA dB and getting the projectversion based on user input. frnversions is the JIRA REST END Point for me in this case; I am looking for similar use case with Bitbucket access

Hi @Ramakrishnan S ,

As I understand you are using Scriptrunner,
I think it will be better and more simple if you use scripted field.

The method I mentioned in my article simply let you connect to Bitbucket/Bamboo without hard coded credentials, getting data with rest api and compare is pure code that need to be written.

Hi Nir Haimov,

 Thank you for the response, yes I am using script runner.

Let me try and give it a shot with your code as base

 

with warm regards

Use Case: from Atlassian Bitbucket server get commit data between two tags of a given Project and repo in that project; 

Use Script Runner - script console  to run this script

Assumption: JIRA issue entry is mandatory in commits. ; JIRA is configured with BITBUCKET server application link and user has required accesses

Use Case: get all repos of a given Atlassian Bitbucket PROJECT and show them as single Selects in JIRA

Use : Script Runner - REST END POINT and Behavior on that custom field

Assumption: ; JIRA is configured with BITBUCKET server application link and user has required accesses

Create REST END POINT g2_get_repos

Note the line  import javax.ws.rs.core.Response as coreResponse; aliased import so that two different Responses work together; (it could be my understanding issue, I could not make them work together without this aliasing)

html : repoName,
label: repoName,
]
},
footer: "Choose repo from BB for this G2 Issue's project"
]

return coreResponse.ok(new JsonBuilder(rt).toString()).build()

}

 

Create a single line text field and add a behavior to that filed in initialiser section of the behavior; take care of Project, Issue Type mapping

behavior on custom field where the repos have to be presented as Single Selects

// assumption is JIRA Project Key and Bitbucket Project Keys are same
// this pkey is Bitbucket Project key sent from here
def pkey = underlyingIssue.projectObject.key
//pkey="PROJECT"
//"Select BB Repo." is custom single line text field converted to Single Select by this behavior
getFieldByName("Select BB Repo.").convertToSingleSelect([
ajaxOptions: [
url : getBaseUrl() + "/rest/scriptrunner/latest/custom/g2_get_repos?query="+pkey,
//because we are sending the pkey from here in full, query is set to false
query: false, // if true, keep going back to the sever for each keystroke
formatResponse: "general",
]
])

 

Hi @Ramakrishnan S ,

I never tried to get diff commits between tags.

I did managed to get diff commits between 2 branches on the same repo.

Any way, retrieving the data has nothing to do with the method I published here.

My method simply let you perform REST API calls without the need to hard code your user name and password for authentication.

If what you need is help with getting specific REST response, you should rise a question in the community.

Use Case: get JIRA issues used between two Tags from Atlassian Bitbucket Server into a scripted field in JIRA

Assumption: JIRA issues are entered in all Bitbucket Commits; JIRA is configured with BITBUCKET server application link and user has required accesses

Use Script Runner Scripted Field to create a custom field; add the below scirpt in that script field code section 

Note: you can create two other custom fields in JIRA where the Tag Names are entered; read those values and pass them to TAG NAME A and TAG NAME B here; same for BITBUCKET PROJECT and BITBUCKET REPO NAMEs

log.info(jira_issues_list)
def uniq_sorted_jira_issues_list = jira_issues_list.unique().sort()
log.info(uniq_sorted_jira_issues_list)
return uniq_sorted_jira_issues_list

Thanks to Nir Haimov, I added more code here what I could achieve with his initial code; I posted some of the scenarios here, not extensively tested, thought it might be helpful to anyone looking further.
