JIRA DVCS Connector with self hosted GitLab

Mateusz Janus April 30, 2021

Hello community!

Does anyone know if JIRA has a plan to provide connetor between JIRA and GitLab selfhosted? In DVCS there is no such a option right now. Right now I am not able to create sync between jira project and gitlab MR :(

Hi there.

What is the version of Jira you have?

DVCS received a major update on Jira 8.14, which includes the connector to GitLab.

Take a look at https://confluence.atlassian.com/jiracore/integrating-jira-with-gitlab-1019398724.html for more information on that.


Just noticed you are using the Cloud deployment.

Currently it's not an out of the box feature, but there's information in this link for that integration: https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/integration/jira/index.html

Kind regards

Thanks for that but it does not solve my problem. I have GitLab seflhosted instance. 

So it means that right now I am not able to integrate JIRA with GitLab (on advance level which allows developer panel). That is sad :(

Hi, I'm having the same need. Did you find any solution ?

Hi , I have the same problem. Found a solution to link Gitlab as Github , however afterwards other problems arose : https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWSERVER-21417

It worked for me by using webhooks. DVCS is not applicable for this version.

@Nastaran Modarres how did you perform the integration? I feel like the documentation to link a on prem gitlab server with a jira cloud is not upd to date.
