Integration Guide

tracked folder logo Tracked Folders

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.

warning
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.

Connecting to a Tracked Folder

For this feature, a local path to the git repository residing on the same server as JIRA is required.  For example, /home/ec2-user/repositories/*.

Use this path via Git Repositories configuration page > Connect to Git Repository dropdown > Add tracked folder.

Add tracked folder dropdown

In the above example repository root, /home/ec2-user/repositories/*, all repositories under this mask (/home/ec2-user/repositores/<repo1>, /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.

fyi
The Add tracked folder wizard scans the local path one folder level deep.

For managing tracked folder repositories, see Documentation: Adding Tracked Folders.
