Git is a source code repository. Developers keep track of their source code using Git.
Git relies heavily on branching and merging. Branching is making a temporary copy of source code for a single purpose like adding a particular feature or fixing a bug. Merging is safely moving the changes from one branch back to another.
This is an add-on for Jira that mashes together data from a Git server with your Jira server. It let's people see code in Git in context with Jira issues.
Git can be complicated and daunting – especially for non-developers. Jira users want this add-on so they can work with Git in the familiar Jira interface.
In organizations with Git and Jira, it is common to have a branch for each Jira issue and branches for every version.
When developers put their work in Git, they can include a Jira issue ID in the comments. With the Git Integration Plugin for Jira installed, Jira will then show the changes in the issue.
It is a safe and well-tested plugin.
We test this on huge Git repositories in large Jira instances. Over 2000 organizations in 70 countries use the Git Integration Plugin for Jira add-on.
Some versions of the Git Integration for Jira add-on, are compatible with specific versions of Jira. For example, the Git add-on v2.9.1 is compatible with Jira Server versions 6.3 up to 7.1.9.

In the Version History page, you can try or buy the Git add-on or download it for use with manual installation.
