An API wrapper for Atlassian Jira
First, you’re gonna want to do this:
pip install pyjira
You’re already halfway there!
Next, you need to set up your environment variables.
Go to your home directory (~/) and put this in “.pyjira”:
export PYJIRA_USER=put your username here export PYJIRA_TOKEN=put your password here export PYJIRA_ORG=put the organization name here
Next, add this to “.bash_profile”, also in the home directory:
On startup, these environment variables will be loaded and you will be able to use PyJira. Woot!
To use, import like so:
To get issues relating to a project:
pyjira.get_issues(“SpaceJam”) # Where “SpaceJam” is the project name
You can also limit the amount of results you get (default=50):
pyjira.get_issues(“SpaceJam”, 20) # 20 maximum results
To get a specific issue, call get_issue() with the issue’s id/key:
To get all existing fields, call get_all_fields():
To get a specific field:
pyjira.get_field(“customfield_90010”) # You can also just pass “90010”
To get all fields within an issue:
pyjira.get_issue_fields(“SpaceJam-931”) # Add False as a second parameter to get result with “customfield_#” field names
This project doesn’t have many functions at the moment, but it will be added to whenever a new one is needed.
