I am taking on the task to get my organization’s GitLab instance integrated with our Jira instance, specifically at the Jira project level. I have been learning from GitLab documentation, and most of it seems straightforward.
At this point my organization is asking me for our GitLab Personal Access Token (PAT) along with the GitLab API key. I’m being told they need this on the Jira end.
In regards to the PAT - I understand how to generate the PAT via the profile settings, however, it seems that this PAT will limit the push to just the individual’s account. Is there any way possible to generate some kind of “Team” PAT that would include a specific list of users? Any way to generate a PAT that is not limited to 1 user?
Ultimately what I am trying to achieve with the GitLab to Jira integration is to have work logged in GitLab to populate on designated custom fields in Jira. Is such a connection even possible? Forgive me, as I am new and still learning all I can about GitLab. Any help or insight here would be really appreciated. Thanks.
