Introduction

The Git Integration for Jira open in new tab app is intended for displaying list of commits linked with a particular Jira issue.  It is often useful to figure out real issue progress as well as contributors involved in the real work of an issue.

The Git Integration add-on pulls data from a Git source code control repository.  Your Jira users will be able to see code in Git in context with Jira projects and issues.  Even non-technical users without Git access will be able to work with Git in the familiar Jira interface.

New tabs are added to the Issue view called Git Roll Up and Git Commits.  The Git Commits tab is also added to the Project view.  Users who access these tabs will see the Git activities.

The Git dropdown is added to the Jira dashboard menu.  This feature is available starting v2.5+ of the Git Integration for Jira app.

Ask your Git administrator if you need access to the Git repository just like a regular developer would have. Click here open in new tab  to send an e-mail using the default email program to the Git administrator.
If you are the Git administrator, define a new Git user for this Jira server/cloud.
