Introduced in v2.9.0 of the Git add-on, this feature scans a locally accessible path for cloned Git repositories and automatically imports those Git repository references into JIRA.
The Add tracked folder feature requires that JIRA and the git servers be on the same filesystem. Make sure that the user that JIRA is running with has access permissions to the path with the git repositories.
For this feature, a local path to the git repository residing on the same
server as JIRA is required. For example,
Use this path via Git Repositories configuration page > Connect to Git Repository dropdown > Add tracked folder.
In the above example repository root,
all repositories under this mask (
/home/ec2-user/repositores/<repo2>) will be handled as one entry in
the Git Repositories configuration page. For other features, these are
treated as seperate repositories.
The Add tracked folder wizard scans the local path one folder level deep.
For managing tracked folder repositories, see Documentation: Adding Tracked Folders.
