Where is the DVCS Accounts entry?


I have installed the Jira DVCS Connection Plugin (v.1.0.3) and followed the instructons from here on how to link a github account.

In my Manage DVCS Accounts (Administration > Plugins > DVCS Accounts) I can see the repository and last commit.

When I attempt to link this reposityory to a project, I find that there is no DVCS Accounts under the

Summary > Settings section.

Please let me know if I am missing something.

Thank you

Hi Victor,

I notice that you are trying to connect to a Github account, so have you configured the OAuth settings for GitHub before attempting to connect to your repositories?

  1. Log in a user with administrator access to your JIRA instance.
  2. Choose username > Administration from the dashboard menu.
    The Administrator page appears.
  3. Open the Issues tab and click Source Control > GitHub OAuth Settings.
  4. Follow the instructions on the page.

Hope that helps,

Thank you for your reply John, I have configured Github OAuth Settings, this enabled me to add the GitHub account and the repository.

The issue is related to the fact that I cannot link the repository to the project, under the Settings Panel on the Project Summary I don't have any DVCS option. I do have an "CVS Modules" but nothing relating to DVCS

My "fealing" is that the plugin is installed, the repository is connected, but how do I link the project to the repository I just added.
