Can I use a github repo in the on-demand version of fisheye?

On the product details page for fisheye it suggests that github and mercurial can be used - however other documentation I've seen suggests otherwise - can you please clarify?

The actual answer to your question is "no"

This hasn't been answered particularly well by Atlassian. If you have an hour or so take a look at the epic comments on and try to work out what the answer is (or even the question).

To clarify:

  • you can make your jira ondemand connect to a github account. This scans commit messages for text that looks like a jira number, and makes a link in the "commits" tab at the bottom of the jira issue page.
  • you can't make your ondemand crucible talk to your github, which is what a lot of people seem to want to do/expect so they can do code reviews.

Hi Abidemi,

We are sorry about that mistake. The team in charge has been contacted for update.

Our FishEye is currently configured only with SVN. However, we expect an integration with other repos such as GitHub in the next coming months as the OnDemand Product Manager stated in the ongoing request to include these repos.

Please do watch the ongoing request about this matter at:

In the other hand, JIRA OnDemand includes a bitbucket & GitHub Connector plugin, that you may want to try while waiting. Below links provide more details:



Hope that helps.
