Frequently Asked Questions

Most important question we have at the moment is - do you plan to continue supporting Gerrit in a long-term perspective, or are you considering deprecating this feature?

We plan to support Gerrit long-term. We just added the support in 2022.

When it comes to Gitlab repositories. Is there any limit to how many repositories can be linked via this plugin?

There is no limit. We use REST APIs to access the data. So if the connection can access all repositories, our app can display those. We do recommend connecting a few repos in one connection rule.

Do you have any internal test results showing the impact on Jira performance with a growing number of linked Gitlab repositories?

We have customers like Apple, Boeing, and Amadeus, as there is not much impact. We also have done Atlassian Data Center certification.

Can you confirm no source code is stored on an OS level? Many other plugins clone the git repository to Jira’s home folder.

Our app does not have access to the source code; it does not clone anything. It uses REST APIs to access the commits and commits history. It results in longer initial indexation times because we have to over the commit tree.

What is the relationship between Atlassian and Move Work Forward?

Move Work Forward is an independent Atlassian Marketplace Vendor. We do not have any affiliation with Atlassian.

Will Move Work Forward have access to any information or data when we use Server or Data Center products?

Move Work Forward does not collect any data and we do not know how you use our products or what data is stored, so we rely on your feedback.

Do you support Jira Cloud / Server / Data Center?

Jigit supports Jira Server and Data Center only.

Can I schedule a demo of Jira GitHub & GitLab integration?

Yes, you can schedule the video call here.

Can I trial Jira GitHub & GitLab integration for free before purchasing it?

Move Work Forward provides a fully functional of Jigit for 30 days.

Once the trial period is over, the cost of the app will automatically be included in your next bill unless manually deactivated via the Manage Apps page under the Jira Administration menu. Evaluation licenses can be extended.

You can generate an evaluation license here, or by logging into your my.atlassian.com account and searching for Jira GitHub & GitLab integration by Move Work Forward.

How does the pricing of Jira GitHub & GitLab integration work?

Data Center and Server: You can find the cost to purchase Microsoft Teams Jira Connector on your Jira Server instance here or your Jira Data Center here. Microsoft Teams Jira Connector for Server or Data Center is sold as a perpetual license, and the purchase price includes 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price here.

How do I connect GitLab or GitHub to Jira Server or Data Center?

You can use Jira GitHub & GitLab integration by Move Work Forward in 1 way:

Uni-directional. With the uni-directional way all data is stored in your Jira's database, and you use Incoming Webhook Connector in Microsoft Teams to receive notifications, alerts and reports in a particular Microsoft Teams channel directly from Jira. You cannot interact with those cards in Microsoft Teams, because data flows only one way from Jira to Microsoft Teams. This way is the most secure and provides you with more control over your data that sent outside. The messages are going from your Jira Server to Microsoft Teams servers directly.

Does Jigit have access to the code and what is the App architecture?

You can find more information in our Security and Architecture guide.

Note: Jigit uses REST API of GitLab and GitHub to read the commit history without accessing the code. The App works via HTTP/S and does NOT clone the repositories.What data is stored?

You can find exact details in the Jigit Storage guide.

How do I revoke my access in Jira?

To revoke the access, you need to delete the rule in Jigit which is inrevertable, so be careful.

Does the app store Jira login details I have entered?

Microsoft Teams Jira Connector does not receive or store your credentials.

Could I use the Jira GitHub & GitLab integration without Jira admin rights?

Definitely yes, you can use Microsoft Teams Jira Connector without being the Jira administrator. However, you may need some help from your Jira administrator to configure the application in some circumstances.

What to do if I do not receive replies for my support requests?

We usually reply within two business day, so please make sure our email has not hit your spam filters. If you haven't seen a reply within 48 hours or it is super urgent - please contact us at support at move work forward dot com.

Why is the app paid?

We are humans who have families and hobbies, on top of this, we inspired to provide the best integration between Microsoft Teams and Jira, which requires time and effort to execute well. Notwithstanding these arguments, we s

How do I get help?

Please use our Jira Service Portal (called F1) to submit a support request, feature request or just an enquiry. Do not forget to describe your problem in great details and attach the debug log if possible. We cannot guess about your issues.

How can I extend my trial license?

At this stage, only Jira Server and Jira Data Center customers can extend their evaluation licenses. You can do this by completing this form and updating your product license under the "Manage Add-ons" page in the Admin panel. 

How can I suggest an improvement?

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Only a small number of people within my team will be using the app. Am I able to purchase a license for only these people?

When purchasing an app license, the user tier must match that of Atlassian Jira. This is a requirement of the Atlassian Marketplace, as detailed in this Atlassian FAQ. Atlassian handles all licensing for Marketplace vendors so we can focus on what is important to us - providing quality software and supporting our customers. As a result, we are unable to modify the licensing to be restricted to specific user groups within a Jira instance.

I purchased a license for the wrong Move Work Forward app, could you please switch my licenses?

All licensing matters are handled directly through Atlassian, so, unfortunately, there is nothing we can do as vendors to rectify this. Please reach out to sales@atlassian.com and open a ticket directly with Atlassian, they will be able to resolve this for you.

How can I enable the debug mode for Jira GitHub & GitLab integration Server or Data Center?

You can follow the the troubleshooting process defined in Jira GitHub & GitLab integration user guide.
