Overview

JIRA Python Library

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

Quickstart

Feeling impatient? I like your style.

    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]'

Getting Started

Requirements

The library works off of Kenneth Reitz's indispensable requests library in addition to standard pieces of the Python library. See setup.py for name and version details.

Installation

Download and install using pip:

pip install jira-python

You ARE using a virtualenv, right?

Usage

See the documentation for full details.
