How to do Jira issue linking with conventional commits?

David Ham I'm New Here Jan 07, 2022

I have a new team-managed project and I want to enable issue linking so I can see Github references in Jira. I'd also like to use conventional commits. But the Jira docs on issue linking say you need to have your Jira issue number at the beginning of your commit message/PR, which would break conventional commits, which require a commit to begin with `feat:` or `fix:` or `docs:` or the like. Is there a way to have both?

Hey @David Ham 

Welcome to Atlassian Community!!

Yes it works, you can both !!

As long as you mention the Issue-key in commit message/PR it should link to jira issue and show up in Jira development panel.

Github Commit:


Jira Issue Development panel:


Hope this helps !!
