Full JIRA integration was previously exclusive to GitLab Enterprise Edition.
With [GitLab 8.3 forward][8_3_post], this feature in now [backported][jira-ce]

GitLab can be configured to interact with [JIRA Core] either using an
on-premises instance or the SaaS solution that Atlassian offers. Configuration
happens via username and password on a per-project basis. Connecting to a JIRA
server via CAS is not possible.
Each project can be configured to connect to a different JIRA instance, see the
[configuration](#configuration) section. If you have one JIRA instance you can
pre-fill the settings page with a default template. To configure the template
see the [Services Templates][services-templates] document.
Each project can be configured to connect to a different JIRA instance or, in
case you have a single JIRA instance, you can pre-fill the JIRA service
settings page in GitLab with a default template. To configure the JIRA template,
see the [Services Templates documentation][services-templates].
Once the GitLab project is connected to JIRA, you can reference and close the
issues in JIRA directly from GitLab's merge requests.
Once the project is connected to JIRA, you can reference and close the issues
in JIRA directly from GitLab.
## Configuration
The configuration consists of two parts:
- [JIRA configuration](#configuring-jira)
- [GitLab configuration](#configuring-gitlab)
In order to enable the JIRA service in GitLab, you need to first configure the
project in JIRA and then enter the correct values in GitLab.
### Configuring JIRA
First things first, we need to create a user in JIRA which will have access to
all projects that need to integrate with GitLab.
We need to create a user in JIRA which will have access to all projects that

As an example, we'll create a user named `gitlab` and add it to `JIRA-developers`
group.

### Configuring GitLab
>**Note:**
The currently supported JIRA versions are v6.x and v7.x. and GitLab
7.8 or higher is required.
---
Assuming you [have already configured JIRA](#configuring-jira), now it's time
to configure GitLab.
JIRA configuration in GitLab is done via a project's
[**Services**](../project_services/project_services.md).
To enable JIRA integration in a project, navigate to the project's
**Settings > Services > JIRA**.
Fill in the required details on the page, as described in the table below.
| Setting | Description |
| ------- | ----------- |
| `Description` | A name for the issue tracker (to differentiate between instances, for example). |
| `Project url` | The URL to the JIRA project which is being linked to this GitLab project. It is of the form: `https://<jira_host_url>/issues/?jql=project=<jira_project>`. |
| `Issues url` | The URL to the JIRA project issues overview for the project that is linked to this GitLab project. It is of the form: `https://<jira_host_url>/browse/:id`. Leave `:id` as-is, it gets replaced by GitLab at runtime. |
| `New issue url` | This is the URL to create a new issue in JIRA for the project linked to this GitLab project, and it is of the form: `https://<jira_host_url>/secure/CreateIssue.jspa` |
| `Api url` | The base URL of the JIRA API. It may be omitted, in which case GitLab will automatically use API version `2` based on the `project url`. It is of the form: `https://<jira_host_url>/rest/api/2`. |
| `Username` | The username of the user created in [configuring JIRA step](#configuring-jira). |
>**Notes:**
- The currently supported JIRA versions are `v6.x` and `v7.x.`. GitLab 7.8 or
higher is required.
- GitLab 8.14 introduced a new way to integrate with JIRA which greatly simplified
the configuration options you have to enter. If you are using an older version,
[follow this documentation][jira-repo-docs].
To enable JIRA integration in a project, navigate to your project's
**Services ➔ JIRA** and fill in the required details on the page as described
in the table below.
| Field | Description |
| ----- | ----------- |
| `URL` | The base URL to the JIRA project which is being linked to this GitLab project. E.g., `https://jira.example.com`. |
| `Project key` | The short, the identifier for your JIRA project, all uppercase. |
| `Username` | The user name created in [configuring JIRA step](#configuring-jira). |
| `Password` |The password of the user created in [configuring JIRA step](#configuring-jira). |
| `JIRA issue transition` | This setting is very important to set up correctly. It is the ID of a transition that moves issues to a closed state. You can find this number under the JIRA workflow administration (**Administration > Issues > Workflows**) by selecting **View** under **Operations** of the desired workflow of your project. The ID of each state can be found inside the parenthesis of each transition name under the **Transitions (id)** column ([see screenshot][trans]). By default, this ID is set to `2`. |
| `JIRA issue transition` | This is the ID of a transition that moves issues to a closed state. You can find this number under JIRA workflow administration ([see screenshot](img/jira_workflow_screenshot.png)). |
After saving the configuration, your GitLab project will be able to interact
with the linked JIRA project.
For example, given the settings below:
- the JIRA URL is `https://jira.example.com`
- the project is named `GITLAB`
- the user is named `gitlab`
- the JIRA issue transition is 151 (based on the [JIRA issue transition][trans])
the following screenshot shows how the JIRA service settings should look like.

### Referencing JIRA Issues
If you reference a JIRA issue, e.g., `GITLAB-1`, in a commit comment, a link
which points back to JIRA is created.
When GitLab project has JIRA issue tracker configured and enabled, mentioning
JIRA issue in GitLab will automatically add a comment in JIRA issue with the
link back to GitLab. This means that in comments in merge requests and commits
referencing an issue, eg. `PROJECT-7`, will add a comment in JIRA issue in the
format:
The same works for comments in merge requests as well.
```
USER mentioned this issue in RESOURCE_NAME of [PROJECT_NAME|LINK_TO_COMMENT]:
ENTITY_TITLE
```

* `USER` A user that mentioned the issue. This is the link to the user profile in GitLab.
* `LINK_TO_THE_COMMENT` Link to the origin of mention with a name of the entity where JIRA issue was mentioned.
* `RESOURCE_NAME` Kind of resource which referenced the issue. Can be a commit or merge request.
* `PROJECT_NAME` GitLab project name.
* `ENTITY_TITLE` Merge request title or commit message first line.
The mentioning action is two-fold, so a comment with a JIRA issue in GitLab
will automatically add a comment in that particular JIRA issue with the link
back to GitLab.

### JIRA issue closing example
Let's say for example that we submitted a bug fix and created a merge request
in GitLab. The workflow would be something like this:
Let's consider the following example:
1. Create a new branch
1. Fix the bug
1. Commit the changes and push branch to GitLab
1. Open a new merge request and reference the JIRA issue including one of the
trigger words, e.g.: `Fixes GITLAB-1`, in the description
1. Submit the merge request
1. Ask someone to review
1. Merge the merge request
1. The JIRA issue is automatically closed
1. For the project named `PROJECT` in JIRA, we implemented a new feature
and created a merge request in GitLab.
1. This feature was requested in JIRA issue `PROJECT-7` and the merge request
in GitLab contains the improvement
1. In the merge request description we use the issue closing trigger
`Closes PROJECT-7`.
1. Once the merge request is merged, the JIRA issue will be automatically closed
with a comment and an associated link to the commit that resolved the issue.

In the following screenshot you can see what the link references to the JIRA
issue look like.

You can see from the above image that there are four references to GitLab:
- The first is from a comment in a specific commit
- The second is from the JIRA issue reference in the merge request description
- The third is from the actual commit that solved the issue
- And the fourth is from the commit that the merge request created

## Troubleshooting
If things don't work as expected that's usually because you have configured
incorrectly the JIRA-GitLab integration.
### GitLab is unable to comment on a ticket
Make sure that the user you set up for GitLab to communicate with JIRA has the
correct access permission to post comments on a ticket and to also transition the
ticket, if you'd like GitLab to also take care of closing them.
