Smart commits allows your team to perform actions on Jira issues from a single commit. Users can enter the issue key and the desired action such as time tracking or closing an issue.
VERSION 2.6.3+ The smart commit processing is active by default and can be enabled/disabled via the git configuration page ( Actions ➜ Edit integration/repository settings):
In Jira Server, Smart Commits is a setting toggle in the Connect wizard or the git
configuration page under Actions ➜ Edit integration/repository settings.
In Jira Cloud, this setting is always enabled.
VERSION 2.13.0+ Smart commits support for project keys that has an underscore "_" character.
VERSION 3.2.0+ Smart commits support for all alphabet characters.
VERSION 18.104.22.168+ Smart commits support for case insensitive smart commits.
Smart commits configuration checklist:
The Jira DVCS Connector Plugin is not required.
The Git Integration for Jira app has the functions of the connector plugin plus more integration support and features.
Your Jira e-mail address and Git commit e-mail address matches.
The commit author’s email should match exactly with a user’s email in Jira. If they do not match, the application will add the commit as the app.
E-mail address is not shared by other Jira users.
Verify that this email address is used by only one Jira user.
Advanced: Verify that the workflow conditions and validators are able to process successfully.
The Git Integration app supports smart commit by adding a simple syntax to a commit message.
The basic syntax for a Smart commit message is:
<ISSUE_KEY> <ignored text> #<command> <optional command_params>
