Doxygen in Atlassian JIRA® Integration

Supports JIRA 5.4 - 6.x



What is Doxygen?

"Doxygen is a popular documentation generator and tool for writing software reference documentation. The documentation is written within code, and is thus relatively easy to keep up to date. Doxygen can cross reference documentation and code, so that the reader of a document can easily refer to the actual code.

Doxygen supports multiple programming languages, in particular C++CC#Objective-C,JavaPerlPythonIDLVHDLFortran and PHP. Doxygen is free software, released under the terms of the GNU General Public License."


What does it cost?

While Doxygen and this integration are both technically free, just as with Doxygen, donations are accepted to help sustain this plugin's support needs.
