Upon configuring the Application link and the Project link from JIRA to Stash (or Vice Versa), the commits are not linking to JIRA Tickets.   

The following appears in the atlassian-stash.log:

It is possible that some of the files from the STASH_HOME/caches/ directory were deleted/removed.  


Since Stash does not have a reindex function at the moment, it is not possible to re-create the indexes (caches).  Therefore, we recommend to remove the repository from the Stash Project and create it again. To do this:

  1. Clone the repository (the repository that is affected by the problem) to a location on your local disk (by executing git clone <repository_url> <location_on_disk>)
  2. Delete the repository at Repositories >> <name_of_repo> >> Settings >> Delete Repository
  3. Recreate the repository (using the same name) at Projects >> <name_of_project> >> Create Repository
  4. Push your local clone to the newly created repository (executing git push --all from within your clone directory should work provided you've used the same repository name for the newly created repository)
  5. The repository should re-index automatically at this point, check to see whether the Issues column is populated in the UI


Do note that performing the above workaround will delete the pull request history.
