This will ensure that in Review Screen and Diff Viewer Git commits are displayed in the same order as in the Git log. To use this functionality you will need to update both server and clients. (COLLAB-4997, COLLAB-2717, COLLAB-1897)

Otherwise it will be excluded. (COLLAB-4238, COLLAB-4239)

Discontinued Support

With the release of Collaborator 11.5, GitHub Polling integration becomes deprecated. This type of integration implies polling the GitHub server at regular time intervals to retrieve information about changes in repositories. This approach has certain time lag and has become obsolete now. We highly recommend using webhook-based GitHub integration type instead of GitHub Polling. Transfer prompt will be displayed on the Remote System Integration page of Admin UI.
