JIRA Webhooks: leave us your URL and we’ll call you back

JIRA 5.0 was a massive (yes, massive) release for the Atlassian ecosystem and everyone building integrations with JIRA. We introduced all sorts of goodies for developers building JIRA plugins, and created new possibilities for remote developers.  For the first time, remote applications could: Fully create and modify JIRA issues with a stable REST API Create links from JIRA issues to their remote application using remote issue links Post activities into the JIRA activity stream with the Activity

I'm not a huge fan of most notifications, especially the ones that vie for my constant attention -- like badge notifications on my iPhone. However, there is a time and place for focused and timely notifications that have increased my productivity. Many people who've never used HipChat before are quick to dismiss it as a simple group chat application. However, once you use it, it becomes apparent that it's a lot more than a group chat app. One of my favorite features of HipChat is the ability to

JIRA 5 Deep Dive – Remote Integrations

With the release of JIRA 5, we made significant improvements to the JIRA REST API. The full featured JIRA REST API allows you to create, update, and search for issues. You can even take advantage of JIRA 5's newest features by creating remote issue links and adding custom events to the activity stream. Developers love this because it's much easier to use REST than the previous SOAP, XML-RPC, and JSON-RPC interfaces for JIRA. Plus, with all of the great resources out there – like the REST API

The GreenHopper Rapid Board was built to fulfill our most-voted customer requests, including the notorious support for multiple JIRA projects. This and other features, like swimlanes and ranking performance improvements, led to a change in the underlying technology stack as well. Old to new Since we had access to some new technologies, the previous combination of WebWork-actions, Velocity templates and PropertySet-based storage has been replaced by a slim REST service implementation, using

Now that JIRA 5 is out, let's talk about one of my favorite features of this new release, JIRA's new REST API. JIRA has supported remote APIs for many years with SOAP, XML-RPC, and JSON-RPC. However, telling developers that you support SOAP (and only SOAP) is like saying that you like writing applications with COBOL -- it's out of style. Today's cool kids gravitate towards REST. It's clean, simple, and highly portable across languages and frameworks. JIRA introduced its REST API in JIRA 4, but was

It all started as a bit of a "joke" ShipIt project. A few of us play Minecraft together on a multi-player server and, after some customary ShipIt pizza and beer, decided that a Minecraft mod for creating and resolving JIRA issues would be a shoe-in for a crowd-pleasing ShipIt winner. Given that, if taken in proportion, the size of a Minecraft world is roughly equivalent to eight times the surface of the Earth, we all agreed it's pretty easy to lose track of all the great ideas you get while playing.
