Link a file of SVN (with reference to certain line) to JIRA ticket


I searched for similar questions but found nothing.

I want to add a link to a JIRA ticket that references a certain line of the code - more precisely a link to a method of a java class.

I know I can add a link to the SVN file itself with the 'source:<rep-file-path>' macro in ticket's comment or description.

But I want more:

  1. I would be happy if I can see this link in the source tab of the JIRA ticket. And I would be excited if I can see the code lines directly (or a certain fraqment like a class method) :-)
  2. I want to link to a certain line of the source file (method, code line, etc.)

Is this possible?

PS: I have JIRA and FishEye as OnDemand.

Best regards,

Doreen Becker

The Atlassian's JIRA Subversion plug-in which has been overcome by Subversion Plus: relates JIRA issues to full commits not just to a single line in a file. @Doreen have a look at DocMiner for JIRA which supports exactly what you are looking for: it allows to relate JIRA issues to any text paragraph in any document version, including source files on Subversion.

Hi Pablo.

The DocMiner plugin seems to be exactly the tool I need.

Thanks for your advice!



You can use JIRA Subversion Plugin[]

and in Commit message should like below to get the solution you want.

Commit message with issue key like ATN-1 link of file

commit will reflect in Subversion issue tab panel.

Hi Onkar.

Thanks for the hint. I think that the DocMiner plugin (recommended by Pablo) should better meet my requirements.

BTW: Is the Subversion Plugin now available for JIRA 6?



HI Doreen,

Great , Subversion Plus[] plugin is compatible with JIRA 6.
