If your JIRA and Git servers are running through a firewall, configure the firewall to allow access using the URL schemes for git repositories. For authentication issues, make sure to check first the correct port for its connection.


Below are the default ports for common git URL protocols:


Protocol
Default port
ssh://
port 22
git://
port 9418
http://
port 80
https://
port 443


Test git connection and repository URL by doing the following:

  1. Install git client (or run sudo apt-get install git)
  2. Place your ssh key into ~/.ssh
  3. Clone the repository (or run git clone <your_repository_url>)

Information: The Git Integration for JIRA will run successfully if the above connection test ran without errors.
