Jira integration not listing all tickets for deploy


We are using the following release strategy (gitflow):

  • merge commits to develop branch
  • create releasebranch from develop
  • merge releasebranch into master
  • create release tag
  • deploy master to production environment

We try to use the gitlab jira connector to get deployment information (tickets in deploy).
This works for all branches merged to develop after the release date of the previous release. However, any merge request that was merged prior to the release date of the previous release is not listed in the list of tickets for the deploy in Jira.

This makes sense when doing Continuous deployment, but is blocking when using a strategy like ours.
Is there a way around this issue or can this issue be addressed?

Kind regards,
