Jira Scripting Suite

JSS plug-in provides a convenient way to put custom conditions, validators and post-functions into workflow in a form of Jython scripts. Plug-in also provides an ability to create on-edit validators, on-edit postfunction, and custom listeners.

This plug-in can be very helpful in building complicated workflows.


  • Choose inline scripting or referencing a .py file. You can use a single script file in many places of your workflow, or event create your own library of useful scripts.
  • On-edit validator provides server-side validation for the standard Edit operation and utilizes standard ways to report errors.
  • On-edit post-function gives an ability to modify field values before they are applied (for example, you can easly create dependency between fields).
  • Plug-in features EditArea Javascript code editor to provide in-browser script editing with formatting and syntax highlight.
  • Scripting allows on-the-fly modifications without JIRA restart.
  • Whole JIRA API is accessible from within the script. All needed variables are injected into script context.
  • Unicode supported.

Please visit our Confluence Wiki space for installation guide, scripting samples and more (look for the Wiki link on the rigth or Learn more below) or leave a bug report or feature request ( Issues link on the right)

This is a real life saver for our workflows. I would be really keen to have this working for Jira 6.0.1.

The description fails to specify that most of this functions are incompatible with the Quick-Edit functionality in Jira. So if you want to try them, you have to disable the quick-edit in Jira.

Amazingly useful, but updates come slowly. I really need a version for Jira 5.1.x.
