I see only questions and no answers. Does anybody answers these questions? Otherwise what is the point to ask?


This is a Jenkins plugin which updates issues in Atlassian JIRA (by changing their status, adding a comment or updating fields) as part of a Jenkins job.

Jira-Issue-Updater-Plugin can search for issues to update using a flexible, user-definable JQL which can contain arbitrary variable values from the Jenkins Build, and update the contents of the JIRA.

The plugin can be called during a Post Build Step and/or as a Post Build Action.

Common Use Cases:

  • Update a JIRA when a build passes/fails, for example to keep an audit trail in JIRA
  • Update Fixed Versions in JIRA
  • Fail a build if a JIRA cannot be found
