When the trustFolderStat setting is set to false, the .git/objects/pack folder will be always scanned to check for new pack files. If set to true, the last-modified attribute of the folder will be used to check the folder for modifications.

The default value for Jira Data Center is false.

If your repository is stored on a network share, it is highly recommended to set this setting to false.
We recommend to leave this setting to false (default) when adding new integration. You can change this setting later on via   Actions ➜ Edit repository settings in the Manage repositories page.
The trustFolderStat setting can be configured for each repository in the integration.
