Many projects use Jira for managing tracking bugs, milestones, feature requests and so on, and many of these projects keep track of which commit affects which ticket. To make things even easier, we have a service called
svngit2jira, which integrates
Subversion and Git commits with Jira tickets.
Simply mention a Jira ticket in a commit, and the specific ticket receives an update indicating that the commit has been made in reference it. For example, scroll down in this CloudStack ticket to see the commit mentioned.
This service also plugs into the ReviewBoard instance if you use Jira ticket names there, as the CloudStack project does.
The most common scenario is to mention a Jira ticket in your commit, and the service updates the ticket to reflect your new commit. Some projects have a trigger set so that it only updates a ticket if the first sentence is the Jira ticket number, but we can tailor this to suit your project's needs.
To enable the service for your project, create an Infra Jira ticket. Include this information:
