Smart Commits not working between JIRA Cloud & GitHub

I am new to both Jira and GitHub and am trying to get smart commits working from GitHub to Jira.

I have referred to the following resources and tried to follow instructions in them



In the latest version of Jira Cloud I am unable to find the option Administration > Applications > DVCS accounts, even though I am the administrator

Control whether Smart Commits are enabled for new repositories:
  1. Log in to Jira Software as a user with administrative permissions.
  2. Go to Administration > Applications > DVCS accounts.
  3. Click the  (settings) icon for the account.
  4. Click Enable Smart Commits on new repositories.

Would appreciate any guidance on how I can get this working.

I'm having the same issue. I've installed the app. The GitHub information is showing up in the developer tab. But, no smart commits. Can't create a comment, or change status or any of the things documented in Smart Commits.

The Jira documentation states that Smart Commits needs to be enabled manually for existing repositories, but I haven't found a way to do that.



The integration have been replaced with an app:

Hopefully that'll help.

Best regards,
