Bridge To JIRA - show all fields of an issue

Sometimes it may be interesting to show an issue in its entirety...

... or maybe just some of the fields.

Example: a newly introduced short-code can show just some of all the fields of the issue with key DBTJ-14. Below we see assignee's progress on an issue nicely rendered as a progress bar.

[btj-issue fields="key, assignee, progress" issue="DBTJ-14"][/btj-issue]

This issue is about a browser bug

... or we can show all the issue fields by not mentioning and field.

[btj-issue fields="" issue="DBTJ-14"][/btj-issue]

This issue is about a browser bug

Bridge To JIRA - Attachments Widget

In order to quickly manage your JIRA issue attachments in WordPress you can use the Bridge To JIRA attachment widget:

  • it allows seeing attachments of all issues from the current project;
  • allows adding attachments to an issue.

Check the animated GIF below for a short sample of what the widget can do.

Security is covered. All the usual configuration options in WordPress can be used in order to choose for which users the widget is shown.

Bridge To JIRA - configure datetime format

Configuring of a particular format for the datetime displayed by the Bridge to JIRA plugin is done using a classic WordPress filter.

The easiest is to have a parallel plugin of a few lines of code that will just add and implement the filter.

Bridge To JIRA - paginated tables

It may happen that there are lots of JIRA issues that match the filter you set in order to display them as a table. In that case retrieving and displaying all issues can take a long time and it doesn't offer a good end-user experience.

A new feature in the Bridge To JIRA plugin allows you to paginate the rendered table by just giving two simple arguments to the [btj-table] short-code:

  • rowsperpage specifies a maximum of number of lines that a table can have in a single page;
  • id specifies an arbitrary unique id for this table ideally into the whole WordPress blog.

Both these arguments are mandatory.

If the whole table has more lines than rowsperpage a familiar page index will appear under the table allowing one to quickly go to the needed page.

Bridge to JIRA - create new issues

With Bridge to JIRA you can create new issues directly from WordPress.

This has the advantage that you don't need to expose your JIRA instance to Internet.

This is as simple as including the following short-code in the post or page from where you wish to be able to create a new issue.

Bridge To JIRA - present issues from JIRA directly in WordPress

The Bridge To JIRA plugin allows you in an easy manner to present issues from a live JIRA instance by using a familiar JPQL filter.

The example below is live: the table will change automatically when the JIRA issues change.

The table is generated using the following WordPress short-code that the Bridge to JIRA plugin parses. It simply presents the summary, assignee and the status for all existing JIRA issues. Here, no JPQL filter is used.
