Update JIRA issue status with Bamboo Build


We have a couple of workflows set up - both are about the same as far as bamboo builds go:

Code Complete > Bamboo Build > Ready for QA

Ready for Deploy > Bamboo Build > Deployed

Currently this is done manually by our build engineer

Seems fairly simple. Bamboo just needs to send a signal to JIRA with each ticket number telling any matching ticket in the left status should be moved to the right status.

I've seen this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16505433/can-bamboo-change-status-of-tickets-in-jirabut find it hard to believe that it's not integrated into the bamboo jira add-on already.

I've seen another post on atlassian like this one but it appears there's nothing new? Maybe I'm just not reading the documentation?

Thanks in advance!

You can transition JIRA issues through its REST api (https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#d2e2802) and you can add scripts in your Bamboo plans. Therefore you should be able to create a script at the end of your plan to call JIRA on its api and transition the issues. Of course, the issue needs to be in a state that accepts the transition

Either code de script from within Bamboo or call it via this plugin https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.sysbliss.bamboo.plugins.prepost-build-commandmade by Atlassian themselves and free
