This feature is displayed on the following locations:

  • INTEGRATION Manage integration page ➜ (blue star) Actions ➜ Edit integration ➜ Feature settings.

Restrict to projects  –  One or more projects can be mapped to this repository or integration to make Git Commits tabs available in the Issue pages of the associated projects. Disable Associate with all projects option to gain access to this field.
