Jira Issues for Github opensource project

Dear Atlassian,

I need an advise how to handle our situation. Our company develops a solution, which incudes two parts - open source (Malhar) and closed source (DataTorrent). We have separate repositories at GitHub, for internal/proprietary and open source code. For internal product we use JIRA and JIRA Agile (On Demand, 25 people) and want to use JIRA for open source as well. Currently we use github issues, so all work done there by our engineers is not reflected neither in JIRA reports nor in Agile board.

What is the best way to solve this problem? Potentially there will be hundreds of external contributors to Open source product, so we can not use our corporate JIRA for it, but I really want to use JIRA and JIRA Agile for the work done by our engineers.

One of suggestions I received was to migrate to external tool, with integrations with JIRA and github, but I thought you might propose how to solve it using Jira + Jira Agile.

Please let me know if more info is required.

Open Source projects can get a free license for JIRA and you can contact sales@atlassian.com for more details.

So you can have two instances, once managing the open source stuff and another managing the internal stuff.

Since the data between these two are not to be shared (I am assuming that the internal one is not public available), this should be okay.

You can always reference between in the instances if the internal one is public (anonymous read-only)

You'll need to fill out the form at https://www.atlassian.com/software/views/open-source-license-request for open source licenses, that is the best place to start.
