This release also has major improvements for JIRA and Confluence support, cross product improvements, and covers new product releases.
This is a simultaneous release of all CLI clients and Run CLI Actions add-ons. The Atlassian Command Line Interface (CLI) distribution contains current CLI clients plus the atlassian script and additional examples and help text shipped with the distribution.
Run CLI Actions add-ons
There is now a family of Run CLI Actions sdd-ons supporting Atlassian CLI actions from within Confluence, JIRA, and Bamboo to enable tight integration of Atlassian products in new ways! This compliments (but should not be confused with) the original ACLI clients.
All Run CLI Actions add-ons bundle all the Atlassian CLI capabilities within the add-on for easy UPM based upgrades.
Note that Atlassian CLI from a client does not require the installation of these add-ons! The add-ons provide additional capabilities.
The Atlassian Command Line Interface (CLI) supports a large range of product releases. The matrix below provides compatibility guidelines based on testing, API compatibility information provided in Atlassian, and community feedback. User's are encourage to help improve compatibility information through discussions and issues. The CLI also works with releases not officially listed here since in many cases it uses remote APIs provided by Atlassian that have been stable for many years. Check previous versions of the CLI for coverage of earlier releases. Users should verify their usage scenarios on new releases. Support normally is limited to minimum releases indicated. Client requires Java 1.6 (recommended) or above. Testing is only done on Java 1.6. In some cases, new actions are only available on against later versions of the server - these are usually noted in the documentation.
See also Compatibility for overall information on supported Atlassian releases.
Some of the newer JIRA CLI actions and other improvements are based on JIRA new REST apis. These APIs started being available with JIRA 4.2 and were significantly enhanced in JIRA 4.3 and later. Attempts to use these actions prior to the supporting JIRA release will result in appropriate error messages. Existing functions will still work on releases prior to 4.3, but releases earlier than 4.3 will no longer be automatically tested.
JIRA 4.4 incompatibility bug regarding some custom field handling - see JRA-25034 and JRA-25732. JIRA 4.4.5 or higher is recommend if you plan to use JIRA 4.4.x
Bamboo 3.3 or higher is required for action dealing with tasks
Bamboo 3.4 is recommended for artifact handling due to BAM-9990
- Limited support, no longer tested. Most actions should continue to work, but use with caution. Recommend upgrading.
- Supported releases.
Add-ons install and run an Atlassian product server
4.4 requires a unique build of the Bamboo add-on. When installing SNAPSHOT releases, ensure you get the correct version.
License Terms Changed
With 3.0.0 and later, the license terms for all the CLI products have changed to a commercial license. See Atlassian CLI License for details.
Highlights of Atlassian Command Line Interface (CLI) 3.2
Introducing: Stash Command Line Interface (CLI)
A consistent CLI implementation supporting the major remote REST APIs provided by Stash. This is the initial release. We encourage feedback to ensure future improvements are prioritized to best meet your needs. This is released as 3.2.0 to be consistent with all the CLI client release naming conventions. Thanks go out to Adam Parkin for his requirements and suggestions.
In addition to supporting the new Bitbucket Command Line Interface (CLI) in the Atlassian CLI distribution, a major improvement was made in process automation of the delivery of CLI releases and snapshots.
Improved automated updates of documentation, examples, and help text. Documentation has been automatically generated for many releases and automatically uploaded using the Confluence Command Line Interface to a staging area. Later it was copied to this site. Now, updates go directly from the Bamboo build process to this site. This now includes SNAPSHOT documentation. SNAPSHOT documentation is located in the CLI specific Version archive section.
CLI client SNAPSHOT delivery has been automated using the Run CLI Actions in Bamboo so that all CLI distributions are uploaded to this site for every build that passes all integration tests. This makes the latest and greatest improvements and fixes available more quickly! This includes all the corresponding documentation. Snapshots are work in progress and may contain incomplete improvements. Refer to the JIRA items for more information on the content of the snapshot release.
Run CLI Actions add-ons' SNAPSHOT delivery has been automated using Run CLI Actions in Bamboo so that these add-ons can be updated with last CLI client support and other improvements. Add-on snapshots will be uploaded to this site for every build that passes all integration tests for all the CLI clients and the Run CLI Actions add-ons.
