Connect Source to JIRA Issues with the JIRA DVCS Connector

By on February 22, 2012

Many Bitbucket users are connecting their Bitbucket source to JIRA issues via the JIRA Bitbucket Connector. Today we are announcing a new and improved way of connecting with the JIRA issue tracker – JIRA DVCS Connector.

The JIRA DVCS Connector combines all the features of the JIRA Bitbucket Connector and JIRA GitHub connector — and a couple more that are brand new. If you’re using a previous version of either plugin, you’ll want to install the new plugin and check out the new features (and some bugfixes).

From JIRA you can:

What’s New

Redesigned Commits Tab

We’ve completely redesigned the JIRA ‘Commits’ tab with a new interface. For every repo commit that references a JIRA issue key, you’ll be able to:

Easy Admin

The look and feel for the administration screens have been updated; you’ll notice that it’s easier to review and manage multiple repos. You can mix-and-match any repos from Bitbucket and GitHub.

Installing and configuring new repos can be done in a snap now. When linking a new repo with JIRA, you’ll no longer have to configure brokers in Bitbucket or GitHub.

Get the DVCS Connector

Connect your source to your JIRA issues with the new JIRA DVCS Connector and let us know what you think.

    Cool, when can I try this in Jira OnDemand?

    First let me apologize for any confusion we’ve created.
    The version of the plugin that has been available for OnDemand is 0.21, which includes the newly design ‘commits’ tab. For customers deploying their own instance of JIRA, they have been able to download the latest version of the plugin and see the new admin user interface.
    version .21 – .23 –
    We had expected version 0.23 (which includes the new admin UI) to be released into OnDemand with the JIRA 5 launch. Unfortunately the plugin upgrade from 0.21 to 0.23 did not make the 5.0 OnDemand release. 
    Over the last week we have upgraded our OnDemand instances to support the latest plugin.

    Cheers, Justen
