JIRA-Python: How can I pass user inputs in Jira issue search?

I'm trying to get information based on the input provided by user and then passing it in a function which gives back the issues created. But I'm not able to pass the objects in search_issue query?

def issuecreated(projectname, reportername, datefrom, dateto):
print projectname, reportername, datefrom, dateto
for i in jira.search_issues('project = projectname AND reporter = reportername AND created > datefrom and created < dateto'):
return i

projectname=raw_input("Please give the project name: ")
reportername=raw_input("Please provide the name of creator: ")
datefrom=raw_input("Please provide the time interval for which you want issues: From ")
dateto=raw_input("Please provide the time interval for which you want issues: To ")
print projectname, reportername, datefrom, dateto
issuecreated(projectname, reportername, datefrom, dateto)

 

I'm able to see the inputs in the function by it is not getting passed in jira.search_issues.

Please help.

Thanks!

Create a string that is made up of the JQL you know and the input from users. Then pass that string to jira.search_issues()

"Static text %s" % variablename

 

Thanks for the input!

I tried to pass the string into jira.search_issues(), but it throws error, jira.exceptions.JIRAError on jira.search_issue() line. Here is what I did.

query = 'project = projectname AND reporter = reportername AND created > datefrom and created < dateto'

for i in jira.search_issues(query):
print i

 

I have given the encoding magic comments to convert Unicode.

It works now, thanks!
