GitHub comments automatically into Jira tasks


Is it possible to take comments from github and automatically add them as comments the the JIRA task the comment / commit belongs to? Any experience of some plugins related to that etc.?

Best regards and have a nice day! :)

Hi Kristin,

I do not have any experience with Github but I have done something like this in SVN using a post-commit hook.

Basically in the post commit hook I can add a comment to a JIRA issue

Have you had a look at the Github REST API?



Excellent, thank you Nagaraj, I'll start by taking a look at those links you sent me :)

It's possible to set it up in GitHub to get an email everytime a comment is made. I'm going to try to solve this by using Mail Handlers in JIRA, and hopefully that will work since it's very easy to set up :)
