Overview

# JIRA Python Library

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

# Quickstart

Feeling impatient? I like your style.

:::python

from jira.client import JIRA

options = { 'server': 'https://jira.atlassian.com'} jira = JIRA(options)

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

# Installation

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

You ARE using a [virtualenv][2], right?

# Usage

See the documentation (http://readthedocs.org/docs/jira-python/) for full details.
