Signed Commits Breaks Gitlab Free -> JIRA Integration


Using SSH signed commits breaks the ability for Gitlab to associate a commit message containing a JIRA Issue Number to the JIRA Issue itself. No errors are reported in the Web GUI.

Gitlab is:

  • Able to verify the signed commit
  • Not able to associate the commit to the JIRA Issue mentioned in either branch, commit, or merge requests. No errors are visible in the Web UI.

I have used the following guides to implement SSH commit signing and JIRA Integration:

Dropping signed commits (i.e removing the appropriate line items in .gitconfig) rectifies the issue and integration begins to work again (i.e. I see JIRA issues being linked / transitioned).

Is this known and expected behavior? Is there any workarounds or fixes?
