Hi Atlassian Community,
I work on the Jira Software product team and I'm excited to introduce a new and better way to connect GitHub Enterprise and GitHub Cloud with Jira Software Cloud. We've just launched the GitHub for Jira app, which offers a complete solution with improved efficiency, security, and performance.
App features and improvements
GitHub for Jira is the only GitHub Enterprise enabled integration in the Atlassian Marketplace that deeply connects deployment data with your Jira project. This allows you to view deployment data in Jira issues and unlocks valuable insights from the deployment frequency report and deployment timelines.
The app allows you to create branches directly from Jira issues. This is more convenient for end users and helps avoid common mistakes like malformed or forgotten Jira issues.
The app supports Jira Automation, so you can build if-this-then-that rules based on events in GitHub. This improves processes, saves time, and helps keep your Jira project up-to-date.
Once you migrate, the app can backfill all your deployment data. We have also reduced the time it takes to run a backfill, helping large organizations get up and running sooner.
And more on performance… pull request, commit, and branch data will display in Jira issues in seconds, rather than minutes.
What about DVCS Connector?
GitHub for Jira has feature parity with the DVCS Connector, so your day-to-day workflow will remain the same once you migrate—plus the added benefits mentioned above. And with active development on the app, you can be sure to get even more value out of it in the future.
As part of this launch, we decided to disable new DVCS connections for new organizations, as we eventually plan to deprecate the DVCS connector for GitHub Enterprise but we will phase it out slowly and give plenty of time to migrate to the new GitHub for Jira app. Until then, the existing connections continue to work as usual, but it will not be possible to add any new organisations. You'll see a link on the new DVCS connection page for a guide (https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-articles/Everything-you-need-to-know-about-migrating-from-the-DVCS/ba-p/945910 ) on how to set up the GitHub for Jira app. Don’t worry about existing connections, everything will continue to work as normal for existing organizations.
We hope you enjoy taking this new integration for a spin! Please let me know if you have any feedback or questions on this integration, we would love to hear from you!
