Hi Hans,

Check out the following Blog post on the integration for more details, but as covered in the blog you will want to Install the GitHub app to set up the integration:

Using the old GitHub integration?

The legacy ability to connect Jira Software and GitHub via the Jira DVCS connector is now deprecated in favor of this new GitHub-maintained integration. Note: GitHub Enterprise customers who are using the DVCS Connector will be unaffected at this time. Stay tuned for updates on an upcoming Jira Software and GitHub Enterprise integration.

So, is that a yes or a no?


The question was:

Your answer just sends us on a wild goose chase to something that should be simply answered.


So which is it?

Hi Brandin,

Yes, if you're using GIThub's cloud deployment,, for your repos, with the caveat mentioned in the article I linked about the new connector requirement, over the legacy connector.

No, if your using a Self hosed Enterprise GIT deployment, with some additional details on this in the in the GIThub master readme file for the new "GitHub for Jira" connector app:

This app officially supports and Jira Cloud. Support for GitHub Enterprise and/or Jira server may be considered in the future.

Covered in the article, with some screenshots of the behavior for referance, when using the new connector in Next gen projects the development details are viewed in the issue card on the dashboard view.


Hi @Hans Son

Is it the integration of the source code (commits), issues, pull requests or a combination of these entities?
