Pre-commit svn hook in JIRA cloud

Is it possible to put a pre-commit svn hook with JIRA on cloud, which will check for a valid JIRA open issue before allowing to commit ?

If such a feature is not available, is anyone doing it any other way ?

thanks and regards

We have been using client side svn pre-commit hook through tortiosesvn.for this purpose.   You just need to

    1) create/use a JIRA user(s) that can access your JIRA instance through the REST API
        The user/password should have limited access 
    2) Create your pre-commit hook
        1) use svnlook to get the description
        2) use your scripting language's regex to get JIRA issue identifiers
        3) use the REST API to lookup the JIRA issue identifiers.  We used curl
        4) Return messages and exit statuses for each error or just the exit status for siuccess

OnDemand used to have this feature. I'll try to look up how Atlassian did it.

If you have your own svn server, you can then use a server side pre-commit hook instead.   I pretty sure Atlassian dropped subversion repository support except through fisheye  for JIRA Cloud.   It was part of the move to BitBucket.  Maybe a new Atlassian connect plugin might exist now.
