JQL query - development section, commits related to a JIRA issue


In JIRA UI we can see a “development” section with very interesting data:

I want to be able to run queries that also access this data.

More specifically, what I want to be able to do now is run a query to find resolved tickets that do not have a commit related directly to them.

Is it possible via JQL?

This is not possible in a plain JIRA instance.

You could try something with this plugin: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.kintosoft.jira.subversion-plus

But that's only for subversion.

Best regards,


Hi Peter,

I tried this, but didn't able to get the JIRA issues list in my project having commits info as part of their Development section of the JIRA issues.

As I am using SVN, it should be OK to use this add-on.

Thank you!

Have you tried using . . .


or sample JQL. . . .

project = ABCXYZ AND issue.property[development].commits < 1



Hi Khanh,

Yes, we are using issue.property[development].commits > 0 to verify whether Jira issues is linked with commit info or not before closing it in our JQL query - it's working perfectly right.

But in extension to this, is it possible to get the SVN branch name in which commit has been done?

when we click 2 commits, it gives one pop window and shows the Repository names, Author, commit id, commit Message and Branch details, Date, Files, etc(Please refer the attached snapshot for the same) - in which we would like to check which are all branches the Jira issue work has been committed.

And also is this possible to check the review status i,e Open, Closed using JQL query along with commit branch info details?

The below is the sample "Development" info linked against one of my Jira issue::
