GitHub Enterprise Behind Firewall (F5)

We are interested in connected our JIRA cloud instance to our on-premise GitHub Enterprise system, we already identified the need to open a port on the firewall but I'm curious to know if the IP addresses that Atlassian uses are set so we can only allow inbound access from those IPs? Our security team is not ok with us opening the port to all internet IPs...

I answered my own question, for those who may be seeking the same answer, there is a great article on this from Atlassian. It's not really referenced for JIRA but applies to JIRA and Confluence.

Thanks - this is exactly what I've been looking for for a while now, and I hadn't come across this page before. Why is it so hidden??

Did you find the integration was useful? Did you compare it at all to the add-on that does presumably the same things?  I have no affiliation with them, I'm just looking at the addon and wondering if it's worth the additional price vs the built-in DVCS feature. 

I already got our infosec to approve opening the single IP for the addon, and now I just found this with like 100 more things to open in the firewall, I hope they go for it.

@Jay Collett, did you find that you need to open all of those ports and domains? I imagine that your infosec group balked at the scope of the request. My guess is that the domains, ports and IPs listed in that doc are for all of Jira's UX to be accessible through a firewall. But what is necessary only to enable the GitHub DVCS integration?

It's ironic that the plugin i linked to above only requires a single IP to be whitelisted, which my infosec approved. Then I had the brilliant idea to try the native - and free, more specifically - DVCS integration first, which brought me to this page, and that huge list of ips, and now of course infosec is thinking twice about it.
