Find commits against a JIRA from the command line

Assume I know a JIRA number, I would like to find all the files which were committed against said JIRA.  It looks like my option is to use grep for the commit message, is that correct?

git log --grep=JIRA-12345

Hi Mike,

From the command line that is correct. Take a look at the example in Advanced Git log:

By Message

To filter commits by their commit message, use the --grep flag. This works just like the --author flag discussed above, but it matches against the commit message instead of the author.

For example, if your team includes relevant issue numbers in each commit message, you can use something like the following to pull out all of the commits related to that issue:

git log --grep="JRA-224:"

You can also pass in the -i parameter to git log to make it ignore case differences while pattern matching.

In addition, please see Viewing the Commit History and Fun with "git log --grep."

Hopefully this helps.
