Self-hosted gitlab integration issue


Hi guys,

I have setup gitlab-jira integration on my gitlab repo. Now, I can see all git commits and merge events on Jira ticket.


Gitlab: self-hosted(Private IP)

Jira: cloud hosted(Public IP)

However, my company gitlab is self-hosted with private IP address(VPN). When I push my commits to gitlab, some Jira web links will be created automatically like below.

 When I click on these links, the browser will try to connect to a unreachable server gitlab-server which is a default setting for gitlab integration on Jira end.

But actually my gitlab server is self-hosted in my company VPN with private IP address. I suppose there should be a way to modify the default gitlab-server to a specified private IP address.

If anyone know how to modify the integrated gitlab server IP address please help.

Thanks in advance.

Hello @Andrew Guo ,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

If I understand correctly what you are saying the integration with Gitlab is only working one direction because, every time you try to open a pr, commit, etc link in Jira this tries to open the below url that is not reachable:



In this case, since it is not possible to configure a VPN in Jira Cloud, I would suggest to edit the hosts file in your Operating System so that it will always resolve gitlab-server to the internal IP address you desire.

For details and instructions on how to do so please see below links:


 I hope this helps.



Thanks Dario, after adding an entry in my hosts file, it works for me.
