Feature request Jira connector

Answered

Hi,

A year ago already Atlassian has abandoned its IntelliJ-Jira connector development:

https://developer.atlassian.com/blog/2015/06/discontinuing-ide-connectors-support/

Now, we can observe more and more problems with the last version of Atlassian Connector (v. 3.016) and recent version of Jira and PhpStorm and other JetBrains products what is nasty. Perfect integration with development stack is a main feature of each and every IDE - without appropriate connector it to one of the most popular tracking system some area of disadvantage opens.

Please notice, Atlassian has "open sourced" it's Jira connectors including IntelliJ one, so it is possible to fork and continue as you will. Or you may develope your own one as already Microsoft did (http://www.the-connector.com/index.aspx).

So, my feature request to JetBrain is to take over Atlassian Jira connector development! Please notice - this specific integration plugin joins two commercial products, so it is really hard to believe it will be taken over by some "independent" developer. If Atlassian has abandoned it - JetBrains has to carry on the burden!

Please vote for this feature !!!

Hi there,

Note that we have our own integration with JIRA shipped with all IntelliJ-based IDEs as part of "Task Management" plugin. It's by far not as feature-rich as the plugin developed by Atlassian, but you might find it useful nonetheless. I'll definitely take a look at their sources, but I'm afraid we don't have enough resources to continue full-blown development of another connector, though we could incorporate some of its features into ours (and possibly in integration with other bug trackers as well).

Hi Mikhail,

FYI - I was unable to integrate Jira with PhpStorm using integrated "Task Management" system. Precisely - though I could see Jira tasks in the task panel - I was unable to change statuses or add workload information. This integration is simply illusory in case of Jira.

Please notice - Attlassian Connector offers very fine integration and it seems only some minor adjustments need to be done to bring back full compatibility between new versions of IntelliJ and Jira... But I am not a Java programmer :-(

Rgs,

The integration was still working until this week, and now it's getting 500 errors from JIRA. I had a glance at the source but it's a bit dense for me. I suspect some of the JIRA endpoints probably changed name, or passing of some parameters is going down a now-untested codepath on Atlassian's side triggering server errors.

This is a killer feature for me, letting me work uninterrupted from IntelliJ/PyCharm to automatically create git branches and switch context based on assigned tasks. I don't think I'll figure it out anytime soon, but I hope someone does.

I started to try to compile the plugin.

But i'm struggling with resolving some dependencies :

com.intellij.idea:tasks-core:jar:117.117:11.1.1,
com.intellij.idea:jira-connector:jar:117.117:11.1.1,
com.intellij.idea:util:jar:117.117:11.1.1,
com.intellij.idea:icons:jar:117.117:11.1.1,
com.intellij.idea:extensions:jar:117.117:11.1.1,
com.intellij.idea:jgoodies-forms:jar:117.117:11.1.1,
com.intellij.idea:forms_rt:jar:117.117:11.1.1,
com.intellij.idea:idea:jar:117.117:11.1.1,
com.intellij.idea:openapi:jar:117.117:11.1.1,
com.intellij.idea:bootstrap:jar:117.117:11.1.1,
com.intellij.idea:trove4j:jar:117.117:11.1.1

I didn't find some "org.jetbrains" equivalents.

 

WIP : I make it compilable.

Sources :
- https://github.com/lepirlouit/connector-idea
- https://github.com/lepirlouit/connector-commons

Next step : fix the bug and fix the dependencies.
I'm a newbie in jetbrains plugins development.

I noticed that Atlassian's Plugin stopped working with never releases of JIRA.

Now I'm really looking for an alternative and what Mikhail Golubev is not enough: the task management lacks a panel where it lists open tasks - the Tasks & Contexts menu is clearly not visible enough compared to a toolpanel

The current IntelliJ connector does not support a Jira Instance which has two factor authentication enabled. It would be great if a login to a two factor secured server would work.

Hi Georg,

Could you please create a feature request about two factor authentication in our tracker?

If we want to build the connector ourselves, where do we get the dependencies like com.intellij.idea:tasks-core?  The following aren't available in the normal places online:

com.intellij.idea:annotations:jar:95.627:9.0.4
com.intellij.idea:tasks-core:jar:117.117:11.1.1
com.intellij.idea:jira-connector:jar:117.117:11.1.1
com.intellij.idea:util:jar:117.117:11.1.1
com.intellij.idea:icons:jar:117.117:11.1.1
com.intellij.idea:extensions:jar:117.117:11.1.1
com.intellij.idea:jgoodies-forms:jar:117.117:11.1.1
com.intellij.idea:forms_rt:jar:117.117:11.1.1
com.intellij.idea:idea:jar:117.117:11.1.1
com.intellij.idea:openapi:jar:117.117:11.1.1
