How automation DevOps triggers support self-managed gitlab?

We want to use DevOps triggers to monitor the activity of self-managed gitlab, such as 'Commit created', 'Pull request merged'.

But we do not know how to configure the integration of Gitlab and Jira.

As we know,  the Jira app ' for jira'  only supports GitLab saas.


Do Jira DevOps triggers support self-managed Gitlab? If the answer is yes, how to configure it?

@Sandesh Shetty 

Thanks for your help. It works for me to integrate Gitlab with Jira. We can see git commits in the JIra comments section.

But the Jira automation rule could not be triggered after the git commits were created.

Here is my Jira automation rule.


I found this guide about how to configure the app in the Jira cloud. But it does not tell us where to get the file of 'jira_connect/app_descriptor.json'.


Do you have any suggestions for me to solve this problem?

I have already found the answer here.

> The app descriptor is built into GitLab meaning it is also available in our self-managed GitLab instance. 

> The app descriptor file will be generated by GitLab and can be found at https://your.domain/your-path/-/jira_connect/app_descriptor.json

If our gitlab site is https://self-managed-gitlab-domain, the app_descriptor.json file is available under https://self-managed-gitlab-domain/-/jira_connect/app_descriptor.json
