Re: it all sucks balls

It doesn't fit for devs either, but as a developer, save yourself.

Learn to use the rest api, and wrap it into a small script so you can open / close/ list and manage tasks / tickets without leaving the comfort of your vim.

This chap makes bobswift.atlassian.net available which wraps the rest api into a CLI jar

java -jar ${LATEST_VERSION_PATH}/lib/${LATEST_VERSION}.jar \

--server "$server" \

--user "$user" \

--password "$password" \

"$@"

for example java -jar xx.jar --server https://jira.example.org/ --user johndoe --password "s3KURe!" --action getServerInfo.

I literally have never logged into the jira web interface since.
