In order to get GitGuardian incidents sent to Jira, you'll need to install our Jira integration on your GitGuardian workspace.


  • Connect as many Jira sites as you want and choose which projects needs to be installed in GitGuardian,
  • Manually create issues in Jira from an incident page or the incident list,
  • Get a real time notification in the Jira issue (via a comment) when a new occurrence from this incident is detected. Up to 10 occurrences for the same incident,
  • A comment is added in the Jira issue when a change (Assign, Unassign, Priority update, New comment, Status change) is done on GitGuardian site.

The GitGuardian Jira integration doesn't automatically create an issue in Jira when an incident is detected. At this stage, we let you choose which incident needs to be pushed to Jira. But this automation is on our roadmap.


  • The Jira integration uses the Jira OAuth, also you need to install each site with an Admin account,
  • Jira On-Premise being deprecated in early 2024, GitGuardian integration only works with Jira Cloud sites.
