We recently installed a new GitHub for jira app (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1219592/github-for-jira?hosting=cloud&tab=overview&_ga=2.79036369.413830701.1579034920-1535139634.1576535068) and have noticed during configuration that it seems to require a READ access to the code. If that is true, does anyone know why and if this is safed to do so.
It's possible to disable smart commits from Jira if connected using DVCS method.
Since GitHub doesn't allow DVCS method, we have to use the GitHub for Jira app which is owned and managed by GitHub.
For GitHub integration, it's not possible to disable smart commits in Jira side or Github for Jira app side. However, we can configure the app access to specific repositories.
It's worth checking with GitHub support (using below link) if there is a way to use the app without granting READ access to code.
Olga, this is an excellent question. I was dealing with GitHub APIs and it seems that they want you to obtain access to the code as a developer even if you don't really need it. I would blame here less Atlassian and more GitHub, but this doesn't really change anything.
