Has anyone successfully integrated Jenkins and JIRA to auto update issues?

I'd like to have issues updated when a build is made with a fix for an issue in Jira. I have tried this plugin for Jira but the issues aren't being updated (I do have remote API calls on). There isn't much good information out there but I imagine there are many people doing this. I have Jira 5.0 and the Marveloution Hudson integration plugin isn't supporting that version yet.

What you may be missing (because I was at first) is that the Jira issue key in the VCS commit message has to be in the first line. So, something like

Some work on this wonderful feature

won't work, but something like

Some work on this wonderful feature, GHG-87

will be discovered by Jenkins and then update the ticket. By the way, this is working for me in an OnDemand instance of Jira. There is a bug filed for it here: but since it is a plug-in issue it probably requires work from the plug-in dev.

Hi we integrate the jenkins and jira successfully and configure the auto update issue options too.

Hi, do you can help me. Mi problem is next :

Thanks for the colaboration

The plugin should be working fine. If you anyone still has trouble, please report issues via the Issues link available at the JIRA Plugin page mentioned above.


Maybe anyone could help me with this.

I want automatic transition on Jira Issue J-10, depending on the current build status in Jenkins. For example If the build in Jenkins is successful then I want Jira issue to transit in status DEV AUTOTESTING. 

I am using the Flexible Publish Plugin, in the part Post Build Actions

And when I make a build in Jenkins this error is shown. 

Unable to connect to REST service FAILURE

Bellow is given a print screen from Jenkins. Is this the right way?


I haven't done this way. But I have tried with the Multi Branch Pipeline. For your case by setting the Issue Pattern as (J-[1-9][0-9]*) should pick the issue ID from the commit and update the issue.

NOTE: You need to have the Jenkins Add-on in JIRA for this to work. One more thing. Add the Jenkins to JIRA after adding the plugin from Settings->System->Application->Jenkins Configurations

Do you get any resolution for your issue?

Even I'm also facing the same kind of issue.

can anyone help us ?

Try after removing this part "latest/issue/JP-10".

Still if it doesn't work, there may be issue in your JQL query. Try with simple JQL query to test whether connection is established successfully.
