A helga plugin that can be used to store responses that can be returned from a question

Project Description

A helga plugin for providing links and/or descriptions of JIRA tickets. For example:

<sduncan> can you look at API-123
<helga> sduncan might be talking about JIRA ticket

Regular expressions for this plugin are stored as the project key without any numbers. So in the example above, the regular expression for ‘API-123’ is stored as ‘API’. This plugin also responds with multiple tickets should they be found:

<sduncan> i'm working on API-123 and API-456
<helga> sduncan might be talking about JIRA ticket,

Optionally, this plugin can use JIRA’s REST API in order to show full ticket descriptions if the setting JIRA_REST_API is set and JIRA_SHOW_FULL_DESCRIPTIONS is set to True:

<sduncan> can you look at API-123
<helga> [API-123] Make a new version of the API

This plugin also includes a command for adding or removing JIRA ticket patterns. Usage:

helga jira (add_re|remove_re) <pattern>

For example:

<sduncan> !jira add_re API
<sduncan> API-123
<helga> sduncan might be talking about JIRA ticket
<sduncan> !jira remove_re API
<sduncan> API-123


This plugin requires database access


A URL format string for showing JIRA links. This should contain a format parameter ‘{ticket}’. (default: ‘http://localhost/{ticket}’)
A URL string, if non-empty, for a JIRA REST API for the JIRA plugin to use. Much like JIRA_URL, this should contain a format parameter ‘{ticket}’. Note that this requires a minmum JIRA version to work, one that has the updated REST api. See (default: ‘http://localhost/api/{ticket}’)
A boolean, if False, only the formatted JIRA_URL will be returned for JIRA links. If True, a full ticket title will be shown. This requires JIRA_REST_API to be set. (default: False)
A two-tuple of JIRA credentials, username and password. If empty, no authentication is used. (default: (‘’, ‘’))
