jira-client

Build Status

jira-client is a simple and lightweight JIRA REST client library for Java.

The goal of the project is to provide simple and clean English idiomatic expressions for interacting with JIRA. In pursuit of this goal, jira-client lacks the usual verbose and cumbersome contortions often found in Java applications. And since the implementation isn't buried under 57 layers of complicated abstractions, jira-client is easy to extend and debug.

jira-client depends on Apache HttpComponents, json-lib, and joda-time.

Features

jira-client is still under heavy development. Here's what works:

  • Retrieve issues by key
  • Search for issues with JQL
  • Create issues
  • Update issues (both system fields and custom fields)
  • Finding allowed values for components and custom fields
  • Transition issues to new states
  • Add comments to issues
  • Add attachments to issues
  • Vote on issues
  • Add and remove issue watchers
  • Add and remove issue links
  • Create sub-tasks
  • Retrieval of Rapid Board backlog and sprints

Maven Dependency

Point your settings.xml at Maven Central and add jira-client to your project.
