Connect Gerrit to Fisheye and/or JIRA

We have several Gerrit hosts that we would like to make visible to JIRA. Unfortunately, the Gerrit plugin for JIRA doesn't allow multiple Gerrit hosts. I am thinking that we can use Fisheye to expose the Gerrit repos to JIRA. 

Has anyone been able to configure Gerrit repos in Fisheye or have any other idea on how to accomplish this?

Gerrit is just a wrapper that sits on top of a source control system, for example, Git.  You need to create a Fisheye repo and point it to an entire repo, branch, etc in Gerrit and wait for Fisheye to index the repo.  It will scan the commit message in each changeset looking for JIRA issue numbers. Assuming you have Fisheye and JIRA integrated already, the magic will happen automatically and you will see the commits on the appropriate JIRA issue number and have clickable JIRA issue links in Fisheye changesets.  If you have multiple repos in Gerrit (likely,) you will need to create multiple Fisheye repos to correspond with the structure you want.
