Jira Integration

qjira - Query Jira

The qjira program uses a private ssh to encrypt the jira username and password

Create a ssh private key called mykey

Create a private key to encrypt and decrypt your jira username and password

~/.ssh$ ssh-keygen
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/home/marc/.ssh/id_rsa): mykey
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
Enter same passphrase again:
Your identification has been saved in mykey2.
Your public key has been saved in mykey2.pub.
The key fingerprint is:
SHA256:XuHQ0li2SilfQn7kfeZUkysrxyqgrkdSoLszdRbgqtY user@localhost
The key's randomart image is:
+---[RSA 2048]----+
|.           oo   |
|..         ..    |
| ..       =. .   |
|o  .     =0o.    |
|+.o   . S.=.     |
|o.o .o =+=+      |
|o= E..=+*=       |
|+o+  ++=+        |

Set Jira Password

Then enter your username and password into the jirapass command using the "write" option in the form <user>:<password>. In theis example demo:test123 was entered

~/.ssh$ jirapass -w
Enter value to encrypt  : ************
Confirm value to encrypt: ************
Credential jirapass written

This will store your username and password encoded and encrypted in a jirapass file in your ~/.ssh directory. 


Set the JIRA_SERVER in qjira.conf file

vi scorch/etc/qjira.conf

~/scorch/etc$ cat qjira.conf


Run qjira

~/.ssh$ qjira -j DEP-1

~/.ssh$ qjira -h

 Using /tmp/scorch/bin/../etc/qjira.conf to locate the JIRA Server: http://jira-nas

 # Query Options
    -j <ticket number>       Jira Ticket ID
    -u <user:password>

 # Help
    -h | --help                          Show help
    -v | --verbose                       Display version

 # Future features and development
    create, assign, transition, comment
    -c | --create            Create a ticket
    -d description
    -s state
    -a assignee

Behind the scenes

~/.ssh$ ls -l jirapass
-rw-rw-rw- 1 user group 74 Nov 18 18:46 jirapass
~/.ssh$ cat jirapass

This encoded password can be read using the same command in "read" mode

~/.ssh$ jirapass -r
