Add GitHub commits to issue after commit is done

Suppose a GitHub commit is made but the JIRA issue id was not included in the comments. Is there any other way to link the commit to the JIRA issue?

You can't do that after you pushed the change, as altering the commit message would break the history of published commits. This is dangerous, and there is no explicit "link this commit to JIRA issue" feature available.

To prevent this sort of problems, use the Commit Policy Plugin and it will never occur again. See this article about implementing commit validation with GitHub.
