At Inflectra, we love making our customers lives easier. That’s why we make it easy to use other tools in conjunction with ours. We’re really excited to announce a brand-new integration with a product we all know and love – GitLab.
Here at Inflectra, we are strong believers in helping out our customers by providing different choices. This way you aren’t forced to use a spoon when a fork would work best.
A key decision to make when creating an application is where to host its code. There are countless options, with some of the most popular being GitHub and GitLab. Both of these have lightweight issue trackers tied to a code repository. We just created a new data synchronization plugin for GitHub’s issue tracker (you can read about it here), so we decided to integrate our Spira platform with GitLab as well so you have a choice.
We designed this plugin to have feature-parity with our GitHub plugin so you can choose your code repository without worrying about integration between SpiraPlan.
With our new plugin, you can create new issues in either SpiraPlan or GitLab and synchronize the new items in both directions. You can easily see new issues created in GitLab right inside SpiraPlan, with full two-way syncing of comments, releases (milestones), and statuses.
With our new data synchronization plugin for GitLab, you can just worry about resolving the issue while we do the rest.
