I'm writing a JIRA integration in my client application. My application is able to list and show Jira issues, and we also have setup a custom field to include custom info in the issues.
Now, I want to include some custom information in the custom field. That information is an URL, but the URL must be defined by the JIRA administrator. So, I need the following:
1) I need the JIRA administrator to configure a "variable" in JIRA server. For example: http://myurl/view/$id$
2) Then, I need the client to read that URL value, then replace the variable fields with a valid id, and will write it in the custom field. For example, if we're processing the item 54, the URL that will be posted to the custom field will be http://myurl/view/54
My questions are:
1) Where should the administrator store the URL?. I tried the application properties, in the jira-config.properties file but the problem is that I need a WebSudo to get the properties. An starndard client normally uses a non-admin account
2) What API call should the client use to retrieve this configuration value?
Thanks in advance
This new url is not as simple as just adding a variable - you'll need to create a plugin that adds the variable url, allows the administrator to configure whatever it is, and then provides the url to non-admin accounts. You'll also need to write all the API segments to expose it internally.
I suspect you might be best off with a more simple approach - write a scripted custom field that gets and displays the data. Your admin can set the url in the script they write, and as it's displayed directly on screen, anyone who can see the issue can fetch it (even REST lets you grab custom field data)
It can be done with the help of katl-commons plugin, see section http://confluence.kepler-rominfo.com/display/SIL/KRedi+-+The+Redirect+Assistant
Your URL will be in the form: <base_url>/secure/KRedi.jspa?key=TST-1234&urlid=9876
and your script:
number ikey = argv["key"]; number lid = argv["urlid"]; //replace with your own customfield id %ikey%.customfield_12345 = "http://foo.com/my/path/" + lid; //the return below doesn't matter return "/browse/" + ikey;
Katl-commons is free and it can be used to do all these sort of integrations.
