Creating GitHub branches from Jira

This add-on offers the convenience of creating branches in GitHub from a Jira ticket. Create and view GitHub branches directly from a Jira issue. Designed with security in mind.

  • add the GitHub App to your account or organization:
  • select which repositories you want to create branches in

This plugin will create a branch with the full issue key, eg. 'SENG-1234', off of the master branch. Optionally, this can support the GitFlow pattern creating a branch off of Develop, such as 'feature/SENG-1234' or setting a custom branch name, e.g. 'SENG-1234/my-fav-branch'.
