Jira/Eclipse integration

Is there a Jira plugin for eclipse?  Would like to see all the work assigned to me my development tool but don't see to see a plugin.  If not what is the typical work flow of associating a task with a commit in git.  Placing a the number in the comment of a commit?

I do not think such a plugin exists. There is a similiar plugin for IntelliJ but the latest version of the plugin is dated to 2015.

I actually never used the plugin.

If you have Bitbucket then you can make an application link with your Jira and on committing your changes you can enter an issue key to the commit comments and you will be able to see your commit in the issue. You can find more info here:

Thanks, we have an enterprise atlassian licence.  Apparently you can go into Jira admin and add the GIT url and this allows association for a issue with a commit.  Is there a document on setting up the integration this way.  Thanks, sorry new to the whole suite of tools.

You would need a GIT server like Bitbuket, GitHub or something like this. If you have Bitbucket, then you can create an application link to your Bitbucket server. 

If you do not use Bitbucket, then you can use a plugin. For example, this one:

To associate a Git commit with a Jira issue, all you have to do is entering the issue key (like MYPROJ-123) in the Git commit message.

Can you please give some more details?

Well, our app called Better Commit Policy helps you to implement this.

Basically, you'd create a policy with the "commit message must contain issue keys" condition and configure that accordingly:
