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]'

Installation

Download and install using pip:

pip install --upgrade jira-python

You ARE using a virtualenv, right?

Usage
