GitHub Webhook Endpoint install for Scm Activity

Scm Activity add-on now supports and provides web-hook REST end-point for GitHub.

Available from add-on version 2.0.2


In GitHub if you are an instance admin (you run your own GitHub installation) then you can add System Webhooks, including for push and tag push events.

Hence it is not necessary to individually add webhooks to each and every repository if you want them to be handled for all - which is very common for companies running their own GitHub instance and Jira instances.

On GitHub org, go to repository settings > Webhooks > Click Add Webhook

Define Payload URL e.g. http://JIRASERVER/rest/scmactivity/1.0/changeset/github/push

Content Type: application/json

Choose Just the push event

Check Active checkbox

Click Update/Add webhook.



Verify payload delivery.
