Git service integration (Recommended)

Formerly known as Full feature auto-connect integration.

Use this type of integration to connect specific git host services to Jira. This integration supports multiple connected repositories and automates most git integration settings.

We highly recommend this type of integration for multiple repository configuration.

For more details on supported git host services, see the full feature integration section in our Integration Guides.

Support for Gitlab API v3 is deprecated. We recommend to use GitLab API v4 when adding new integrations for increased security.

Webhook indexing integration

Connect directly to a Git service by configuring webhooks to push commit, branch, pull request, and tag data to Jira Cloud.

Webhook indexing integration allows your connected git servers to work behind a firewall. However, the downside is that your integration will have limited features. For now, the supported git servers are, GitLab and Microsoft. More will be coming in the future.

Single git repository integration

Manually connect single git repositories using this setup such as git protocol, SSH, HTTP/HTTPS, etc. or simply connect one specific repository.

Connected git service integrations appear in the Manage integration configuration list.

  • Use the search option and filter to control integration list display.

  • Use the checkbox to specifically select integration/repositories from the list. Pair this with actions to perform multiple configuration for selected items.

  • Use the column headers to sort the list in ascending or descending order.

  • Use Actions to manage integration/repository settings.

The above UI descriptions also apply to the Manage repositories page since it has a similar layout.

Reindex selected (formerly Reindex All)

In the new managed user interface, the Reindex all function is further improved and superseded by selecting one or more integration/repositories using the checkboxes and thenReindex selected.

This function will perform a reindex queue of all the selected integration/repository from the list.

Reindex will ignore disabled integrations. Enable them first to run reindex on these integrations.
