Is there a way to "unlink" a git-commit from a jira-item?

Leonard Chew Aug 04, 2016

Sometimes a developer writes the wrong jira-issue key in a comment of a git-commit, which results in a git commit linked to a wrong user story or bug.

As the git-comment is part of the commit-hash-tag, it is nearly impossilbe (or at least very costly and unwise) to change the wrong comment within git.

  • Is there at least a way to remove (unlink) the git-commit from the wrong jira-item?
    (i.e. delete and blacklist the specific git-commit on the jira-side from the assinging index)

Hi Leonard,
We have a feature, which allows user to associate a commit with additional issues - see Git Notes documentation
Unfortunately now it's impossible to disassociate a commit with an issue. It's possible just in Git Plugin version for Cloud JIRA. But this is the kind of feature that we'll definitely do.
Please contact us at for any questions in the future.
