Introduced in v2.9.4 of the Git add-on, this feature tracks added or deleted repositories from a remote GitLab server (EE/CE) and automatically imports those Git repository references into JIRA.
BigBrassBand recommends a dedicated user for this integration which has access permissions to the GitLab git repositories.
This process requires an existing GitLab Server EE or GitLab Server CE.
The GitLab server is added to the repositories list as a connected server and is automatically reindexed.
Manage repositories of a connected GitLab server via the Git Repositories page under Actions > Show tracked repositories to modify tracked repositories settings. Enable/disable a tracked repository by checking or unchecking the specific checkboxes.
