Problems in Integrating jira and github using DVCS plugin

Tarun Sapra Community Champion Mar 09, 2014

Hi,

I am trying to integrate JIRA and github but I am facing a issues which I am not sure how to fix. I am using DVCS connector.

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/Linking+Bitbucket+and+GitHub+accounts+to+JIRA

A github enterprise user gave me the client ID and client Secret, now on the JIRA admin page, when i give the client ID, Client secret and HIS username, the click next then I am redirected to the github page where it shows my username and it says whether I want to allow this application to connetc to my github account or not?

I don't get this part as I am giving his username and client id and client secret from his account but why am i redirected to my page on github enterprise?

Thanks,

I was able to integrate github and jira by following the documentation https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/Linking+Bitbucket+and+GitHub+accounts+to+JIRA, few things to keep in mind

1) You need to generate cliend id and client secret and copy them in your dvcs plugin configuration

one of the problems I experienced is that sometimes it didn't work and I had to generate the client id and client secret again in order to integrate the github enterprise repo. with my JIRA.

2) Also, you need to have Admin rights for JIRA and for github is it's an organization account then you need to be the member of that organization. so that you can register a new application generate client id and client secret.

I think you're supposed to generate a client ID and key for your account, and then provide those together with his username to allow the system to access his account's repos on your behalf.

Is this true? It doesn't seem clear from the documentation. I have had the same experience as Tarun and I have the same question.
