An Alfred workflow to search for Jira tickets.
- The workflow is triggered by the jira keyword, followed up by the search query.
- Under the hood the workflow uses the
/rest/api/3/issue/pickerendpoint to return a list of issues matching the Alfred query.
- It’s smart enough to return a list of issues if you’re query is a word, or a specific issue if your query is a ticket number.
The workflow setup still has a huge margin for improvement: I haven’t built an authentication flow, so it requires some manual setup (that I abstracted into three workflow environment variables).
Part of the Jira URL.
The jira API token to use for authentication.
You can generate one in your jira account settings
The jira username associated with the API token.
It also needs jq to be installed.
