I'm an independent tester. I work with a team whose program management and development is managed in gitlab. We have a section in gitlab to write software deficiencies (bugs) for visibility to the developers. But then we have a JIRA project to manage our tests and need to have the bugs synchronized there to report properly in our Zephyr test executions.
I'd like to be able to have the bugs in gitlab be automatically synchronized with the bugs in JIRA so that when a team works on a bug in gitlab; or changes a status; or someone leaves a comment; or we close a bug; then that status updates in JIRA. Is that possible?
All that I've read about JIRA-gitlab integrations relate to merges and commits; but we don't do merges and commits, just bug statuses.
Hi @Kristy Maconi -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
Please check the GitLab documentation to see if it has an API for creating/updating defects in that tool. If so, you could create an Automation for Jira rule, listening with a webhook to that API to create/update issues (e.g. defects/bugs) in Jira.
If not, please consider checking the marketplace for an addon to help integrate defect information: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/search?hosting=cloud&product=jira&query=gitlab
