Integrations

 

YouTrack Standalone

YouTrack InCloud

Integrations with other applications in a local environment

You can set up an integration with a local server (for example, Active Directory, self-hosted GitLab, or self-hosted GitHub) if this server is located in the same network as your YouTrack Standalone installation or if it's publicly accessible.

You need to make sure that your network doesn't block connections between your server and YouTrack.

You can only set up an integration with a local server (for example, Active Directory, self-hosted GitLab, or self-hosted GitHub) if you open this server to the public or at least add the YouTrack IP range to the whitelist.

Slack integration

Slack integration is available only if:

  • your YouTrack installation is secured with an SSL/TSL certificate signed by a known authority;
  • your server infrastructure allows connections outside your internal network.

Link previews are not available.

Slack integration is fully available out of the box.
