GitLab Documentation

Custom Issue Tracker Service

To enable the Custom Issue Tracker integration in a project, navigate to the Integrations page, click the Customer Issue Tracker service, and fill in the required details on the page as described in the table below.

Field Description
title A title for the issue tracker (to differentiate between instances, for example)
description A name for the issue tracker (to differentiate between instances, for example)
project_url Currently unused. Will be changed in a future release.
issues_url The URL to the issue in the issue tracker project that is linked to this GitLab project. Note that the issues_url requires :id in the URL. This ID is used by GitLab as a placeholder to replace the issue number. For example, https://customissuetracker.com/project-name/:id.
new_issue_url Currently unused. Will be changed in a future release.

Referencing issues

Issues are referenced with #<ID>, where <ID> is a number (example #143). So with the example above, #143 would refer to https://customissuetracker.com/project-name/143.
