Have you ever searched for a way to integrate JIRA with GitLab? Atlassian has a very good connector for GitHub and BitBucket – the JIRA DVCS Connector plugin. This plugin is Open Source (hosted on BitBucket) and can therefore be extended.
Recently I have been extending the JIRA DVCS connector with GitLab support. For now, sync of repositories and all their commits is working for JIRA 6.3.x. The code can be found here:
The addition is using the Gitlab Java API Wrapper by Tim Olshansky.
The next steps are (Pull Requests welcome!):
- Cleanup and create a pull request to integrate back into the official Atlassian Repo
- Port the code for JIRA 6.4.x and newer versions
