Github integrate to one specific repository

How can I link up Jira to a specific repository? We are working with an outside firm who is hosting the github repo. They have set up a repository and granted us access to the repository. We would like to integrate this repository to our Jira project. How can we do this?

It is easy to integrate with an entire Github team, but not to a specific repository. Is this possibe?

Indeed its possible and establishing an oauth connection via the DVCS connector is straight forward:

You can link as many individual and/or team accounts as needed. The main thing to note is that the person in JIRA linking to github needs to have admin rights to the github account.

Got it. So if I don't have admin rights to the repo I am out of luck. Bummer.

Thanks!
