Is there any way to get the Jira Commit Acceptance plugin to work with Jira 6.1.6?

We are planning to upgrade Jira and it doesn't seem to make sense to upgrade from an obsolete version to an obsolete version. Unfortunately the commit acceptance plugin has not been updated in nearly two years. Is there a way to get it to work with the latest version of Jira, and if not, is there an alternative available?

We have released the Commit Policy Plugin some months ago, as a re-implementation of the Commit Acceptance Plugin, that brings in several major improvements:

  • You can check issues against JQL queries (a lot more flexible than what Commit Acceptance supported)
  • Install and upgrade with some clicks from Atlassian Marketplace
  • Auto-generated hook scripts (no need to manually edit script files)
  • Support for Subversion, plus Git, Mercurial and Bitbucket
  • Compatibility updates
  • and a lot more!

Make sure to read the manual and to give it a try!

After a detailed research we could enable plugin in version 6.1.5. We copied plugin file (commitacceptance-1.6.0.jar) into the folders listed below: -Atlassian\JIRA\atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\lib -Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA\plugins\installed-plugins
I would try this on your test system. It is like installing a version 1 plugin.
Depending on your needs, you could write the same thing without any additional code on the Jira side at all. You can use the Jira REST API from within your perl/python client script to check for if the issue key is valid or has the proper status.

Looking at the plugin documentation. Jochen Schmidt wrote a svn perl script that did use Jira's REST api for checking if the issue key exists or not. The script is in the comment section.;jsessionid=B7D77F2E56787D435CF3B5AD8025F435
