A library to ease use of the JIRA 5 REST APIs.

Project description

This library eases the use of the JIRA REST API from Python


Feeling impatient? I like your style.

from jira.client import JIRA

jira = JIRA('')

issue = jira.issue('JRA-9')
print issue.fields.project.key             # 'JRA'
print          # 'New Feature'
print issue.fields.reporter.displayName    # 'Mike Cannon-Brookes [Atlassian]'


Download and install using pip install jira or easy_install jira

You can also try pip install –user –upgrade jira which will install or upgrade jira to user directory. Or maybe you ARE using a [virtualenv][2], right?


See the documentation ( for full details.
