    Creating GitHub branches from Jira

    Creating GitHub branches from Jira

    Creating GitHub branches from Jira

    More details

    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.

    • add the GitHub App to your account : https://github.com/apps/jira-bot
    • select which repositories you want to create branches in
    • create and view branches in a Jira ticket.

    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'.

    Org Admin sometimes are required to add plugin. Happy to help debug this with you. Could you log an issue at https://github.com/osowskit/atlassian-github-app-addon/issues

    Does not work. Fails to connect to GitHub with no explanation. This functionality should be included in the official GitHub app anyway. Also, I'm not usually a freeloader, but seriously who charges a subscription fee for a plugin??

    It looks like a new browser requirement broke this plugin for a week. This has been resolved and apologize for the delay.

    Wouldn't load the settings to let me install it. Looking at the other reviews it looks like it needs some extra functionality to set the branch name, too.

    Feel free to open a support ticket in https://github.com/osowskit/atlassian-github-app-addon/issues and we can see about getting you able to install this.

    We would also like to create the branch with some of the issue title as part of the branch name, not just the issue id.

    Pricing FAQ

    How does cloud app pricing work?

    Cloud apps are sold as a monthly or annual subscription. You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.

    When your subscription renews each month, you are automatically billed for apps based on the number of users in your instance.

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my cloud pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your Atlassian product. Jira Cloud apps are priced based on the maximum users of the Jira products on your instance. For example, if you have Jira Software (50 users) and Jira Service Management (10 agents) on the same instance, you pay the 50-user price for apps.

    The pricing structure for cloud apps is as follows:

    • Monthly subscriptions with up to 10 Atlassian product users are billed at a flat rate price.
    • Monthly subscriptions with more than 10 users are billed per user, starting at the first user.
    • Monthly subscriptions with more than 100 users are billed per user. The table above provides example pricing at various user levels.

    Annual subscriptions may offer a discount depending on the number of users purchased.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses for cloud apps?

    Yes. Academic, community, and open source licenses are available to qualifying organizations. See our Purchasing & Licensing FAQ for more information.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For cloud apps, you cannot extend your free evaluation period. All cloud apps are immediately subscribed by a user, and we provide a free evaluation period. This is a minimum of 30 days and ends on the second billing cycle after you first subscribe to the app.
