Cannot integrate Jira Cloud with Self-hosted Gitlab

In DVCS Account section, there is no option for Gitlab.

I used Github Enterprise as an workaround, when account was linked, Jira cannot read repositories from my self-hosted Gitlab, even though I change `scope` to `api` or `read_repository`

I have another issue, I uninstalled the application, and now when I add https://<>/-/jira_connect/app_descriptor.json in manage apps, it says: 

The app failed to install. Please try again later or contact the app vendor.
Anyone has any idea why?

After setting the communication ports open to the JIRA cloud which should generally be the list of IPs (14) listed here -->


Also, please set your JIRA cloud to the development mode (Enable Development Mode from settings under "Manage apps") and Upload app (Eg: - Self-hosted GitLab.

For the App descriptor URL  --> https://<>/-/jira_connect/app_descriptor.json

Refer link -->


You should have a success..!

Make sure your self hosted Gitlab is hosted/accessible over internet with SSL certificate.

You may have to use "Git Integration for Jira" plugin.

Thank you, Reddy. I will consider this solution.

I have no idea why Jira Cloud stopped support Gitlab in its DVCS.
