Smart Commits linking, but commands not working, with github integration

I'm using Jira OnDemand along with GitHub, and trying to make the smart commits work. My Github email and my Jira email are the same.

The commits link to the issue - when i go to the Commits tab, i do see them. But when i do something like this:

CUR-1184 #comment testing out the github jira integration

I don't get any comment on the issue. I have commenting permissions, they are linking together, I have FishEye plugin enabled (though it's not clear that that's necessary with the OnDemand instance).

One odd thing. My default github email always matched my jira email - but I had another email listed first in my github account. I deleted that other email address, so now my only github email is the same as my jira email. But now when I look in the commit tab of the issue, the username on the first few test commits (before i changed emails) link to my github profile. The next few test commits, however, link to In both cases, the actual full commit link still goes to the right place.

Okay, I've now filed a ticket. Would love to hear more about the workaround.


Okay, Atlassian Support helped me figure this out. THe problem was that while my email matched in github, it did NOT match in my local git config. So i changed it by using git config "<JIRA email>" and that covered it.
