This plugin uses https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/server/.

Plugin Version 2.0.0.2021092727 Revised on Jul 16, 2021

Supported versions

The following JIRA versions are supported:

  • 6.x

  • 7.x

Configuration

Plugin configurations

Plugin configurations are sets of parameters that apply across some or all of the plugin procedures. They reduce repetition of common values, create predefined parameter sets for end users, and securely store credentials where needed. Each configuration is given a unique name that is entered in designated parameters on procedures that use them.

Creating plugin configurations

To create plugin configurations in CloudBees CD, do these steps:

  1. Go to Administration > Plugins to open the Plugin Manager.

  2. Find the EC-JIRA row.

  3. Click Configure to open the EC-JIRA Configurations page.

  4. Click Create Configuration.

  5. To enable CloudBees CD server to communicate with the API, enter the following information:

The EC-JIRA Configurations page now shows the new configuration.

Editing plugin configurations

To edit plugin configurations in CloudBees CD, do these steps:

  1. Go to Administration > Plugins to open the Plugin Manager.

  2. Find the EC-JIRA row.

  3. Click Configure to open the Configurations page.

  4. Find the configuration that you want to edit.

  5. Click Edit.

  6. Edit the parameters in the configuration.

  7. Click OK to save the modified configuration.

Procedures

CreateIssues

Creates one or several JIRA issues.

This procedure is compatible with the old procedure "CreateDefects" from EC-DefectTracking-JIRA plugin. If no summary is provided, it looks for the property sheet named /myJob/ecTestFailures. The property sheet should have the following format:

/myJob
    /ecTestFailures
        /Test Case Name, e.g. "My Case"
            /stepName -> Step Name (e.g. My Step)
            /testSuitName -> Test Suite Name (e.g. My Test Suite)
            /testCaseName -> Test Case Name (e.g. My Case)
            /testCaseResult -> Error (e.g. "Something failed")
            /log -> Log (e.g. Test "My test" failed)
            /defectId -> ID
            /defectResult -> DefectResult

At least one of the properties should be provided. The best way to fill the properties is to use Post Processors. Look at the example of a Post Processor for JUnit.

If the "Summary" field is filled, only one issue is created.

If there is no summary and no predefined properties, no issues are created and the procedure finishes successfully.

ParameterDescription

Configuration Name

Provide the name of your EC-JIRA plugin configuration.

Project Key

JIRA project Key. A project key is the all capitals part before the issue number in JIRA.

Version Name

JIRA version to be created.

CollectReportingData

Gathers reports from the specified JIRA instance.

ParameterDescription

Configuration Name

Provide the name of your EC-JIRA plugin configuration.

JIRA Filter ID

JIRA filter used to find the issues or defects in JIRA.

JIRA query

JQL to select issues. Either this parameter or "JIRA filter ID" must be specified.

Field mapping

JIRA fields that identify the release that the feature or defect is associated with. E.g., "fixVersions.name:releaseName, projectName:releaseProjectName". The identified fields will be used to populate the target fields identified in the report object association from feature to release. The record projectName:releaseProjectName means that field "projectName" from the JIRA will be mapped to field "releaseProjectName" into the reporting system.

Report object type

The type of the report object. Available values are feature, defect.

Fields to aggregate

The JIRA fields to aggregate on. For each group based on the status field and additional group by fields, the sum of each of the specified fields will be calculated and stored as separate fields. These fields are expected to be numeric fields. Each field can be optionally specified as "fieldName:featureFieldName" in which case the value will be stored as "featureFieldName".

Allow missing fields

If checked, the missing fields in Fields to aggregate the value will be considered as 0. For missing fields in Field Mapping the value will be set to null.

Metadata property path

Property sheet where run metadata will be stored. Optional field. If omited, /mySchedule/EC-JIRA-%JobName%-%Report Object Type% will be used for schedule contest. For all other contexts root is /myProject.

Transformation script

Allows user to provide perl script for payload customization. This method will be invoked by plugin with 3 parameters. 1st parameter is context object, 2nd is payload object, 3rd is the refined issue fields. Method should be named "transform", and should return payload object. In this example myTimestamp field will be added to payload object:

# This method will be called for each payload after aggregate and mappings processing
sub transform {
    my ($context, $payload, $refined) = @_;
    $payload->{myTimestamp} = $context->one();
    return $payload;
}

# Example of the method added to the transformScript context object
sub one {
    my ($context) = @_;
    return time();
}

Preview

If checked, no data will be sent to the reporting system. Use this option to preview gathered data.

Debug

If checked, the debug level will be set to "Debug".

The procedure retrieves issues from the JIRA, groups them by the specified fields, creates report payload and sends the payload into the reporting system. To associate issues with Feature or Defect object, "Field mapping" parameter must be specified.

Field mapping has a format of "jiraField:featureField", where "jiraField" is the name of the field in JIRA (e.g. "projectName") and the "featureField" is the name of the field in Feature/Defect, e.g. "releaseProjectName". Most common fields are:

  • projectName - the name of the JIRA project

  • statusName - string representation of the issue status, e.g. Opened

  • versions.name - string representation of Fix Versions field, e.g. 8.0

  • epicName - The name of the bound Epic, e.g. Reporting

  • issueTypeName - string representation of the issue type, e.g. Bug

Field names are case-insensitive. All available JIRA fields can be seen in the procedure logs, but some of them has type that is not compatible with mappings. If you need special handling, use transformScript with an additional (third) parameter.

Custom fields defined by the user will apear in the list of JIRA Fields based on the custom field name, lower cased and without spaces. In example, if custom field is:

    {"id": "customfield_10100",
    "key": "customfield_10100",
    "name": "TEST Custom Field",
    "custom": true,
    ...

It will appear as testcustomfield in the list of JIRA Fields.

To gather some summary data, like sum of storyPoints in the grouped issues, "Fields to aggregate" parameter must be specified. In case the parameter is empty, each issue will be sent as a separare report payload. Any field with numeric data can be used in this parameter. Mostly used fields are:

  • storyPoints - story points of the issues (stories, epics)

  • timeEstimate - estimated time for the issue

A refined issue can look like below:

To put a top-level field into a payload, simply use its name, e.g. "projectkey:projectKey". To put a value from an array, use the dot syntax: "operatingsystem.value:operatingSystem" will result in {"operatingSystem": "All"} in the payload.

Result format

Several procedures support result saving. They save the list of issues created/updated/queried in two formats: JSON and Property Sheet.

If "Property Sheet" format is chosen, the result will be saved in form

%property%
    /issues
        /key -> MYJIRA-1
        /summary -> "Some summary"
        /type -> Bug
        /status -> Closed
        /assignee -> Admin
    /issueKeys -> MYJIRA-1

If there are no issues to save, the property is not created.

Here is the sample:

If JSON is chosen, the raw JSON response from JIRA API will be saved, e.g.

[
   {
      "fields" : {
         "versions" : [],
         "labels" : [],
         "duedate" : null,
         "timespent" : null,
         "timeoriginalestimate" : null,
         "updated" : "2017-10-24T00:32:32.000+0000",
         "description" : null,
         "lastViewed" : "2017-10-25T18:17:39.778+0000",

Examples

Updating issues based on SCM logs

Create a procedure with three steps:

  1. The first steps checks out code from Git

  2. The second step is LinkIssues procedure from EC-JIRA plugin:

It reads the property "/myJob/ecscm_changeLogs", which is to be set by the previous step, and writes it’s results into "/myJob/issueLinks" property sheet. . The third step is UpdateIssues procedure from EC-JIRA plugin:

It reads issue keys from the property "/myJob/issueLinks/issueKeys", which is to be set by the previous step and uses these keys as a part of JQL.

Run the procedure:
