Using GitHub webhooks for Fisheye

Themis Atlassian Team Nov 19, 2020

I am using the marketplace app Github Webhooks for Fisheye 

  • The plugin is installed and within Fisheye we have defined a GitHub webhook.
  • On Github  we have also defined a webhook that uses the parameters (URL and secret) provided by the plugin.
  • We push changes to the GitHub repo  and see the GitHub webhook fires with  success.
  • Yet the fisheye repo does NOT update (indexing is not triggered)


- How can I troubleshoot this further?

- What could be a possible reason for the indexing not starting?

Please do the following:

  1. Check the json payload from GitHub and find fields: ssh_url, clone_url, git_url.
  2. Navigate in Fisheye to Administration/Repositories/repo name/SCM Details and find Repository Location

Location must match one of the fields from (1), make sure there is no typo, slash at the end or similar little difference.

If you use defined repository location over https with user/password authentication (for example you can't match with url sent from GitHub ( In that case consider switching to ssh.
