Linking Bitbucket and JIRA

By on April 30, 2012

Today, we are introducing Bitbucket Links. With Links, you can use issue keys to link to your JIRA issue tracker or Bamboo build server or other development tools you use straight from Bitbucket.

Anywhere that an issue key is referenced, Bitbucket will link directly to your JIRA or Bamboo build server.

Easy to setup

Installing and configuring new repositories is super easy. From any repository administration screen, select the new ‘Links’ option to set up your JIRA, Bamboo, Crucible or Jenkins server.

Get the DVCS Connector

We also have the JIRA DVCS Connector, which allows you to view your Bitbucket commits from JIRA. Any commit that contains an issue can be viewed from within JIRA, linking your issues directly to your source. Connecting JIRA projects to your Bitbucket repositories allows users to:

  • Track commits, monitor source code edits, and drill through to source files
  • Push commits to JIRA simply by referencing issue keys in commit messages
  • Map unlimited public and private Bitbucket and GitHub repositories to JIRA projects
  • View Bitbucket and GitHub activity in the JIRA Activity Stream

EDIT – May 1, 2012

We’ve added a REST endpoint to modify configure links.

    Thats excellent. 

    Do you have an ETA when this functionality will be available in the rest api. its quite a cumbersome process to setup a project in jira, link the project o bitbucket, and now additionally link the repo back to jira…

      The API was deployed with the feature, we were just a little late publishing the documentation, sorry about that.

      You can see how to use the API here

    Do the links to JIRA projects require that the project be public rather than private? When trying to link to our OnDemand instance, all I get is a “More information is available with DEBUG=True” error message.

    What do I put in the product key box to link JIRA to bitbucket? I can’t find a product key anywhere in settings (but then the settings are huge!).

    Is it possible to be have a bitbucket commit,link to a jira task but ALSO close the task? or update the status somehow?

    I am trying to find a way in which our devs can write their code, check it in, put comment agianst the commit,then mark the task as completed or ready for testing.

    What would be even nicer, would be to somehow put in the actual completion time into the bitbucket commit, allong with the status update. So that we can then link the jira task with our timesheet application.

    Which would mean the developer has 1 thing to do and not 3.

    Can one link an issue to an already done commit? (e.g. if one forgot or misspell the issue number in the commit)
