I have published a Jenkins plugin that consumes JIRA webhooks to trigger Jenkins builds. It is published via Jenkins official plugin center. You can check what features it is currently supporting and the setup steps here: jira-trigger-plugin.

Hi Wisen, I am trying to configure the plugin now and I found out that the sample url on 8080 you used on summary is not allowed as a webhook. only 80 and 443 are allowed.

@Viorel Mirea I believe this port restriction is only applicable when you are on JIRA Cloud. So unfortunately you have to configure your Jenkins server to use 80 or 443.

The format of the HTTP request generated by a JIRA webhook and the format of a HTTP request expected by Jenkins to initiate a build will very likely have a lot of differences.  Therefore, you cannot send the webhook directly from JIRA to Jenkins.  You would need to develop an intermediary service that listens for JIRA webhooks and generates subsequent requests to Jenkins.

I had a look around online and it seems that someone has built a Jenkins plugin to do this: https://github.com/ivanoronee/jenkins-jira-builder


I did open link above it has src/main -- enable building of all project types that are buildable gitignore added code for job quering and matching license initial commit readme.md initial commit pom.xml added code for job quesring and matching but dont know what code need to copy and where to place that code can you please let me know steps how i can use this to run builds from jira

It's not my code, so I'm not sure how it works. It looks like a Jenkins plugin that you will need to compile and install in Jenkins.
