Setup Repository Root Not Located in Jira Home Directory

There are three possible ways to setup a repository root that is not located in the Jira home directory:

  • Clone the repository outside of Jira then connect to it via Connect to Git Repository  >  Advanced Setup.
  • Clone the repository with the standard Connect to Git Repository Wizard into the Jira home directory.  Soon afterwards, move the cloned repository and update the settings on the repository.
  • You could symlink the {$Jira_HOME}/data/git-plugin directory to a different volume.  The standard Connect to Git Repository Wizard will still write there, but the data will reside on the different volume.  But be aware, that Git add-on treats anything in the Git-Plugin folder as a clone that it owns.
