Setup repository root not located in Jira Home directory

There are three possible ways to setup a repository root that is not located in the Jira home directory:

  • Clone the repository outside of Jira then connect to it via Connect to Git Repository ➜ Advanced Setup.

  • Clone the repository with the standard Connect to Git Repository wizard into the Jira home directory.  Soon afterwards, move the cloned repository and update the settings on the repository.

  • You could symlink the {$Jira_HOME}/data/git-plugin directory to a different volume. The standard Connect to Git Repository wizard will still write there, but the data will reside on the different volume. But be aware, that Git Integration app treats anything in the git-plugin folder as a clone that it owns.
