API for Jitter Plugin ?

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Oct 23, 2012

Hi all,

is it possible to create new Jitter posts via an API ? Idea is: Our Hudson Buildserver should create a Jitter post everytime a new version was released.

Is this possible with the Jitter Plugin ?

It is possible through REST but is currently not documented as the idea was to improve the API design before documenting it. But if you want to try it out here is what you can do:

Do a POST request to $jiraURL/rest/jitter/1.0/project/$projectKey with a parameter "content" that contains the message.

You have to authenticate your request with a JIRA user and the authenticated user will be the author of the post. The user also has to have neccessary permissions to post to the project. I recommend that you create a user for your Hudson server and give it a nice avatar using the Hudson icon :)

Checkout the JIRA REST documentation if you need help with authentication.

Let me know how it works out for you.
