Is it possibe to link Jira and AWS CodeCommit (GIT) to create workflow?


I've found a post regarding linking Crucible and FishEye to AWS Codecommit but is it possible to do the same between JIRA and CodeCommit(Git)? 

This is a similar question and so is this but they're both for JIRA Server and appear to be outdated (2013). 

What I'm trying to do from JIRA Cloud is ...

to allow somebody like a tester to log a bug on Jira and then a developer annotate the git commit message to automatically cue Jira to modify that issue status (called 'Smart Commits' in Jira).

e.g. My AWS CodeCommit commit message includes : "JRA-090 #close Fixed this today" ; and auto-magically the issue is closed out in jira.

How can this be achieved between the two tools?

We're expanding our AWS presence and would like to integrate our JIRA Cloud instance with our AWS CodeCommit instance but there doesn't seem to be a connector like they have with GitHub. 

Atlassian, could you add a connector to AWS similar to what you have with GitHub?


Any help on this would be appreciated.

The fact that its a paid app is upsetting to me. I understand GitHub is probably the #1 Cloud Git Repo, which is why its integration is possible out-of-the-box with JIRA cloud, but this "add-on" is based on the same underpinnings: GIT.

Why I can't point a GIT connector to a GIT repo brand of my choice seems to me to be a a huge misalignment here.

IT feels like discrimination because I am using AWS CodeCommit. GIT is GIT is GIT, no? What about Bitbucket and GitHub score them a free connector for JIRA users?

If AWS is doing something that's preventing a nice clean generic integration like all the other GIT repo's you support, I'll bring it up with them.

Let me know why this is. Thanks.

Hi Alec - I know we've chatted before - but I wanted to put this answer out there for others. Our add-on the Git Integration for JIRA Cloud support AWS CodeCommit (once connected new repos will be automatically added): https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.xiplink.jira.git.jira_git_plugin/cloud/overview




Hi Adam,

The page at the URL you provide doesn't mention anything about AWS CodeCommit. Does it still need updating?

We currently use Jira + Bitbucket. We do smartcommits in order to log work, and especially time spent, to Jira tasks.

We would like to switch from Bitbucket to CodeCommit, because we are planning on using CodePipeline in AWS.

Will the smartcommits and time logging functionality still work if we use your plugin together with CodeCommit?

Best regards,
