Introduction

The Git Integration for Jira Cloud app offers three (3) types of integration, namely:

  • Git service integration (recommended)

  • Webhook indexing integration (special cases)

  • Single repository integration (plain git)

The Git service integration (formerly auto-connect/full feature integration) allows administrators to setup multiple repositories for integration with Jira. This is the recommended way and offers features not found in other integration types. If you are behind a firewall, you need to whitelist the app to get it to work.

The Webhook indexing integration allows administrators to integrate multiple repositories behind a firewall. However, this type of integration does not support creating branches or pull/merge request inside Jira.

The Single repository integration setup is ideal for users who are using SSH connections or only connect a single specific repository.
