Hi Atlassian Community,
I work on the Jira Software product team and I am happy to share that we have just added support for third-parties, such as GitHub and GitLab in Jira Software Cloud’s Code in Jira.
Available for both classic and next-gen projects, Code in Jira enables everyone on your team to automatically view the repositories that are being worked on across Bitbucket, GitHub, or GitLab right within Jira. When a team member includes an issue key in their commit, branches name or PR summary from your source code management of choice, we will automatically parse out the repo in which that activity occurred and display it on the Code in Jira page!
We’ve brought the third-party Git connection flow right into the Code in Jira view to make integrating as frictionless as possible. To get started, following these steps:
Simply click through on the “Connect to another Git SCM tool” button.
Select the provider you wish to integrate with (or browse the list of available apps) such as GitHub or GitLab.
Click the “Get it now”and follow the app install prompts.
Once the app is installed and configured all you need to do is include issue keys in your branch names, commit messages, or pull request summaries and the repositories in which this dev activity occurred will automatically appear on the Code in Jira page.
We’ve also added a Code toggle on the Features tab for greater flexibility and control. Turn Code in Jira on or off for your entire team by visiting the Features tab.
Once you have a third-party app connected, easily navigate to your app settings from within the Code in Jira view.
Next up, we’re looking into adding more granularity to the Code in Jira tab by showing additional repository information on the cards, showing open Pull Requests, and more. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks and months!
We’re looking forward to seeing how you use these new features. Please let me know if you have any feedback or questions on this feature, we would love to hear from you!
