Getting Started

To install JIRA Mobile Connect into your current project:

  1. hg clone ssh:// or download the latest release:
  2. Open your project in XCode, right click on your Classes group, and select 'Add Files to YourProjectName'
  3. Browse to the jiraconnect-ios clone directory, and add the entire JIRAConnect/JCOClasses directory to your project.
  4. Select the project (top most) element in the file/groups tree
  5. Click 'Build Phases' --> Expand 'Link Binary with Libraries' --> +
  6. add the following frameworks:
    • CFNetwork
    • SystemConfiguration
    • MobileCoreServices
    • CoreGraphics
    • AVFoundation
    • CoreLocation
    • libz1.2.3
  7. Add the CrashReporter.framework to your project's frameworks: + --> 'Add Other'
  8. Browse to jiraconnect-ios then JIRAConnect/JCOClasses/Libraries/ --> CrashReporter.framework
  9. Click 'Open'
  10. Try compiling your App, and ensure there are no errors.

To use JIRAConnect in your App:

  1. Import the JCO.h header file into your ApplicationDelegate

    #import "JCO.h"
  2. Configure the [JCO instance] at the end of the ApplicationDelegate.m like so:

    - (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions method, add the following line:

    [[JCO instance] configureJiraConnect:@"" customDataSource:nil];
  3. Replace the string @"" with the location of the JIRA instance you wish to connect to.

  4. The JIRA URL you configured above, will need to have:

    • the jconnect-plugin installed
    • a project named either the same as
      • the XCode Project,
      • or the value returned by your [id<JCOCustomDataSource> project] method. This can be the project key in JIRA, or the project's name.
  5. Provide a trigger mechanism to allow users invoke the Submit Feedback view. This typically goes on the 'About' or 'Info' view. The UIViewController returned by JCO viewController is designed to be presented modally. If your info ViewController is in a UINavigationController stack, then you can use the following snippet to show both the feedback view, and the history view.


import "JCO.h"

  • (void)viewDidLoad { self.navigationItem.rightBarButtonItem = [[[UIBarButtonItem alloc] initWithBarButtonSystemItem:UIBarButtonSystemItemCompose target:self action:selector(showFeedback)] autorelease]; self.navigationItem.leftBarButtonItem = [[[UIBarButtonItem alloc] initWithBarButtonSystemItem:UIBarButtonSystemItemOrganize target:self action:selector(showPastFeedback)] autorelease]; }

-(void) showFeedback { [self presentModalViewController:[[JCO instance] viewController] animated:YES]; }

-(void) showPastFeedback { [self presentModalViewController:[[JCO instance] issuesViewController] animated:YES]; } </pre>
