Custom Activity for Activity Stream

I am wondering if I am able to post a custom activity to the activity stream

(e.g. I would like developers to be able post something to the stream when they deploy a new version of the app) NOTE: we don't use atlassian to manage the code just JIRA & Confluence.

Basically I'd just like them to be able to post a 'status update' of sorts that can appear in the activity stream.

You're OnDemand? There's nothing much you can do customized wise.

Sorry I didn't mean I wanted to customise JIRA OnDemand, I was more meaning is there a way to post something directly to the activity stream without it being an activity with a issue, etc. E.g. like posting a status update to facebook

Sorry. The answer is still no. Activity stream picks things from issues.

i am not sure but it may help you,

Hi Ryan,

There is one outside-of-the-box solution available. JIRA instances can be updated via REST API. You could have a program/interface available to your users using the API to send 'status updates'/comments to an open issue in a 'Updates' project.

You could then have a separate 'Activity Stream' that only monitors the 'Updates' project.

For more details on the JIRA REST API feel free to check out:
