ticket: create and manage tickets

Ticket is a generic tools to create items with metadata and states (where state can be queued, done, etc). This can be used for many things, from TODO list to bugs management.


Retrieve one or more tickets and display them. A project may use magic string in README to indicate PubSub service and node to use, in which case use just need to be in the directory of the project.


Retrieve last 5 tickets (ordered by creation) from a project using magic string in README:

$ jp ticket get -m 5 -o creation

Retrieve the ticket with id 123 on service pubsub.example.org:

$ jp ticket get -s pubsub.example.org -i 123


Import tickets from an external source. This works in the same way as import: you need to specify an importer and a data location. If you let both positional argument empty, you’ll get list of importers, if you specify importer but not data location, you’ll get a description on how the importer works.

If you want to see a progress bar for the import, use the -P, --progress option, this is recommended for most imports.

Some importers may have specific option (check description for details), you can specify them with o NAME VALUE, --option NAME VALUE

When you import a ticket, the ticket will be created according to the schema of the PubSub node. By default, the metadata of the original ticket will be put to the one of the same name in the dest PubSub item. But of course the schema of your destination PubSub node may differ from the original metadata. In this case, you can use -m IMPORTED_FIELD DEST_FIELD, --map IMPORTED_FIELD DEST_FIELD to specify how the mapping mus be done (IMPORTED_FIELD is the name of the field in the original ticket, while ``DEST_FIELD if the name of the field in your node schema).


Get list of ticket importers:

$ jp ticket import

Get description of ticket importer for Bugzilla:

$ jp ticket import bugzilla

Import tickets from a Bugzilla XML export file at ~/bugzilla_export.xml to the pubsub.example.org PubSub service. We use default tickets node and want a progression bar:

$ jp ticket import -P -s pubsub.example.org ~/bugzilla_export.xml

Same import, but this time we want to map the field assigned_to_name from Bugzilla to the field assigned_to in our schema:

$ jp ticket import -P -s pubsub.example.org -m assigned_to_name assigned_to ~/bugzilla_export.xml
