Github Sync to Jira -could an update to the Jira Scheduler speed up sync with Github?

Github Sync to Jira -would an update to the Jira Scheduler speed up sync with Github?

Has anyone had experience in changing the sync interval with GitHub?

The scheduler documentation state it is possible to edit scheduled jobs on the backend.
Has anyone edited scheduled Jobs on the Backend, would you recommend this?


The Scheduler administration page displays scheduled administrative jobs in Jira, their triggers, and properties.

Scheduled jobs in Jira include repetitive tasks and events executed by cron at regular intervals. For example:

  • cleanup tasks
  • update tasks
  • analytical tasks and events

The following image shows an example of the Scheduler administration page:

The page contains two tabs — Groups and Jobs:

  • The Groups tab lists the packages of scheduled jobs. You can see the status of each group, how many jobs each group includes, and the schedule of each group’s execution.
  • The Jobs tab lists individual scheduled jobs. You can see the status of each job, the duration of each job’s last run, and the schedule of each job’s execution.

You can’t edit scheduled jobs on this page. But you can do it on the backend. 



we would like to speed up the sync between Github and Jira, would change the scheduled interval of  one of the scheduled jobs shorten the interval?
The above link states that it is possible on the backend.

Has anyone dealt with the sync interval with GitHub?

@eleanor m kerman , thanks for pointing this out. It's a specific assessment that might require some time to be completed. We're working on it. However, our tool does support the Data Center.

@eleanor m kerman hi there! It is possible to shorten the sync interval between the two systems. Do you plan on using any external help for the integration (a 3rd party one), perhaps? If so, i'd like to propose you take a look at ZigiOps. It's a no-code platform that can help you connect Github and Jira, transfer (branches, comments, etc), and sync various data (projects, versions). It's fully customizable so you can tweak it to fit your use case -  in your case, that would be to shorten the sync interval to only a few seconds. Feel free to explore it and if you think it would be beneficial to your project, you can book a demo to see how it actually works.

Diana (ZigiWave Team) Hello,

Thank you for responding, in general we strive to find solutions sometimes we implement various Pugin's,  specifically the ZigiOps app is not supported in Data Center.

@eleanor m kerman hi, ZigiOps does support Jira Data Center. Center compatibility

A Data Center approved version of this app is not currently available. Only apps meeting a set of performance requirements for large, clustered environments are approved for Data Center.

Trying server apps

While Server apps are built for single-server deployments, many customers successfully install them in Data Center environments. Atlassian recommends you contact the vendor to determine compatibility at scale.
