Look Up Jira Transition IDs

Updated: Feb 1, 2023

This example shows you how to get transition IDs (for "To Do", "In Progress", "Done", etc.) for a Jira issue using DataPipeline.

Once you have the list of IDs, you can transition an issue by following the Transition Jira Issue example.

Java Code Listing

package com.northconcepts.datapipeline.examples.jira;

import com.northconcepts.datapipeline.core.Record;
import com.northconcepts.datapipeline.jira.client.JiraService;

public class LookUpJiraTransitionIds {

    private static final String JIRA_DOMAIN = "JIRA_DOMAIN";
    private static final String JIRA_USERNAME = "USERNAME";
    private static final String JIRA_API_KEY = "API_KEY";

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        JiraService service = new JiraService(JIRA_DOMAIN, JIRA_USERNAME, JIRA_API_KEY);

        Record record = service.getIssueTransitions("AB-12");

Code Walkthrough

  1. JIRA_DOMAIN is your Jira domain e.g https://company.atlassian.net.
  2. JIRA_USERNAME is your Jira username.
  3. JIRA_API_KEY is your Jira token which you can easily create in https://id.atlassian.com/manage/api-tokens.
  4. Create JiraService using above properties.
  5. JiraService.getIssueTransitions(String issueId) method is used to fetch all the transition IDs for a given issue ID. This method returns a record with all the transition IDs.
  6. Print this record containing all the transition IDs.

Sample Console Output

    0:[11]:STRING=[To Do]:String
    1:[21]:STRING=[In Progress]:String
