App Support

The Git Integration for Jira app currently supports Jira 8.0 to 9.0!

UPDATE
Starting v4.0 of the Git Integration for Jira app, support for Jira 7 is entirely dropped.

We are committed to provide you with an efficient and reliable support. Scroll down to see helpful tips to get started.

What’s on this page:

Migrating to Jira 9

Administrators should deselect the "Reverse commit tab sort order" option in General settings when Jira 8 is migrated to Jira 9. If this is a new Jira 9 installation then nothing is required.

After upgrading from Jira 8 to Jira 9, administrators must re-create all indexes using the "Reset index" Action command for all repositories or integrations.

Quick Installation Video

No changes necessary to your Git server. This Jira app acts as a regular Git client.

Using Atlassian’s marketplace system, a Jira administrator can install the Git Integration for Jira app without ever leaving the web browser.

Retiring IE11 Support

With the release of the Edge browser since 2015, IE has not been receiving major updates. Atlassian has stated in their blog that they will withdraw support for IE11 on all Jira products.

In view of this, BigBrassBand LLC will also follow this decision effectively:

  • For all Atlassian Cloud products, support will end on 31 March 2020.

  • For Atlassian server and data center products, the last version to support IE11 will be released between September 2019 and March 2020.
