Bulk add git repositories to fisheye?

I can use an HTTP post to load repositories into the git plugin for Jira, but is it possible to do this for Fisheye at all? Or can Fisheye use the repositories already defined in Jira?

It seems to be a real shortcoming of the product suite that I have to manually duplicate all this data.

Hi there Mark,

Recent versions of Fisheye have a REST API for adding repositories: https://docs.atlassian.com/fisheye-crucible/latest/wadl/fecru.html#d2e227

Depending on your environment, you may also find this plugin useful: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.fisheye.repositron

Thanks, but the documentation there does not match what the REST API really seems to want. For example, the link shows:

{
  "type" : "git",
  "name" : "myGitRepo",
  "description" : "My GIT repo",
  "storeDiff" : true,
  "enabled" : true,
  "git" : {
    "location" : "git@bitbucket.org:atlassian/fecru-rest-examples.git",
    "auth" : {
      "authType" : "key-generate"
    },
    "blockSize" : 400,
    "commandTimeout" : "1 hour",
    "renameDetection" : "NONE"
  }
}

as the JSON string to use for creating a git repo. That syntax does not work at all. In fact, the following in needed:

{
  "type" : "GIT",
  "name" : "myGitRepo",
  "description" : "My Git Repo",
  "url" : "git@bitbucket.org:atlassian/fecru-rest-examples.git"
}

And then a series of additional calls are needed to enable and start the repository. Where do I find the documentation for what JSON is *really* used by Fisheye?

Hi Mark,

It looks like you are looking at 2 diifferent endpoints.

rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories-v1

rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories

Your first example is valid for rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories, and it looks like you are using rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories-v1

Hope it helps
