How to make Jira number mandatory in the 'Title' of 'Pull Request'?

Raj Goel I'm New Here Dec 06, 2017

Want that the developers should always specify the Jira number while raising a Pull Request, better if it can be made mandatory in Title of the Pull Request. Are there any rules/configuration available to make it mandatory?

Hi Raj,

I think OOTB is not providing that feature but there are hooks which can help. This one for instance is free: 

https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.isroot.stash.plugin.yacc/server/overview

It allows you to add a hook to check if commits are linked with a Jira issue (a valid one), you can even restrict with JQL what kind of issues are eligible for that rule.

Hope this helps!
