Jigit is an application for Jira Server or Data Center that integrates Gerrit Code Review tools with Jira.

You can find it at Atlassian Marketplace.

Gerrit Code Review configuration

When the Gerrit is integrated with Jira using Jigit it shows the data in the following way.

In order to configure Gerrit Core Review, you need to navigate to the Gerrit tab and enable the integration. Afterwards, you need to provide the details of the Gerrit server.

Gerrit settings explanation:

  • Enabled - if checked, enables Gerrit integration.

  • URL - Gerrit Server URL.

  • User - Gerrit user to access the REST APIs.

  • Password - Gerrit password to access the REST APIs.

  • Add Gerrit info into the Gerrit tab - Display Gerrit information in a separated Jira issue view tab.

  • Add Gerrit development panel - Adds status information into the development panel on the Jira issue view screen.

  • Projects to hide Gerrit - the list of Jira projects where to hide Gerrit information. If used - displays Gerrit info in all projects by this (used in combination with Projects to show Gerrit setting).

  • Projects to show Gerrit - the list of Jira projects where to show Gerrit information.

  • Search for issue in - the list of items where to search for the Jira issue key mentioned.

Gerrit performance

  • Gerrit information is queried when the Jira issue is rendered and the data is placed in the Cache. Default cache invalidation is 3 minutes, it is configurable.

  • Gerrit information is not stored in the Jira database and lives only in the memory in Jira Cache.

  • Since versions 5.07.27/6.07.27, Gerrit integration uses ETags to cache the results. The current cache configuration is 1000 items of the size of each of up to 5MB.

Jira Development Panel Gerrit integration

It is possible to enable the Gerrit issue view panel which displays the Gerrit summary. You need to enable it in the Gerrit settings.
