Once installed, configure your account:
List all projects:
List all issue types:
accountable issuetypes or accountable issuetypes DEV
List metadata for an individual issue:
accountable issue DEV-101
Add a comment to an issue:
accountable issue DEV-102 addcomment "[~tpm] I'm BLOCKED"

Currently, only Basic Auth is supported. Running accountable configure will prompt you to enter your username, password, and the your Jira domain.
Since every account can be setup differently you might want to view custom fields for an issue. By default, the following fields are displayed when examining an issue:
Reporter - Display name
Assignee - Display name
Issue type - name
Status - Status category - name
These defaults can be changed by editing your ~/.accountable/config.yaml. Nesting fields is supported. Check out the Jira documentation here for information on fields in the payload.

Jira already supports robust triggers, like changing a ticket’s status based on a pull request, or a branch being created. You can also transition tickets with commit messages.
However, there are times when these automated triggers aren’t enough.
Often, you’ll start work locally, and forget to put the ticket in progress. Or you’ll forget to add a transition to a commit message. Multiple actions listed in your commit message also aren’t relevant to the project’s history.
