Git Integration for Jira Self-Managed (Data Center/Server) Documentation

Why don’t I see the Create Branch or Pull Request features?


Users cannot see the Create branch or Create Pull/Merge Request actions in the Jira issue sidebar.


The Create branch and Create Pull/Merge Requests features are enabled by connecting to one of the Auto-Connect integrations.

  1. Navigate to the Manage Git repositories screen 
  2. Select one of the Auto-Connect options (GitHub, GitLab, etc)
  3. Complete the integration connection wizard steps

See integration guides for each Auto-Connect option.

The regular Git integration option does not offer the Create branch and Create pull/merge request features.
