Creating Reindex Triggers for a Single Repository

To create a webhook that triggers the reindex of a single repository, the following requirements are required:

  1. The git_http_url matches the Repository Origin URL from the Jira git configuration page (Git > Manage repositories > Actions > Edit integration settings).
  2. The Content-Type request header is set to application/json.
  3. Use the webhook secret key from the git configuration page > Webhooks.

The webhook is a POST request with the following JSON body:

    { "git_http_url": "https://gitlab.com/bbb-dev/bbb-testrepo.git" }



The repository is placed in the indexing queue.
