Getting Started

1. Installation

Log into your Jira instance as an admin. The click Jira Settings > Apps > Find new apps. The Find new apps screen loads.

Use the search box to locate Travis for Jira and click Free trial to get started.

2. Configure Travis CI to report build information

After successful installation, edit your .travis.yaml file/s to make Travis CI report your build information to your Jira instance.

From your Jira home page go Jira Settings > Apps and then select Configure under the Travis for Jira section.

Copy the snippet and paste it in your .travis.yaml file. You can use the same snippet for all your GitHub repositories that you would like to send Travis CI build information to Jira.

3. Associate builds to Jira issues

Once you have updated your .travis.yaml start using smart commits in your Git commit messages or include the Jira issue in the Git branch names to associate a Travis CI build with a Jira issue.

If you are using GitHub for Jira app you are required to wrap the issue key in angular brackets in your commit message, e.g. [TFJ-1] A commit message. Travis for Jira does not impose this requirement but we are perfectly fine do wrap your issue keys.

When Travis CI tells the app about a new build it will try to extract one or more issues keys from the branch name or commit message and associate the build with those issues.

🎉 That's it, get productive and start releasing with confidence 😎
