How to connect a GitHub account to Jira Software

Hello Atlassian Community members!

Jira Software and GitHub have created free apps in their marketplaces that allow you to view activity in your source code repository inside of your Jira tickets. Linking between these accounts gives you quick, direct access to branches, commits, pull requests, builds and deployments while viewing Jira Software tickets in planning and during stand ups.

Here are some simply steps to connect a GitHub account with Jira Software:

  1. Install the (free) GitHub for Jira app from the Atlassian Marketplace and follow the instructions to complete the installation.

  2. Select Get started.

  3. Select Add an Organization.

  4. Find the GitHub account you want to integrate with and select Install.

You’ll see the GitHub configuration page in Jira:

  1. Install the (free) Github for Jira app from the Atlassian Marketplace and follow the instructions to complete the installation
