JIRA + Bitbucket Just Got Smarter

By on September 24, 2012

The JIRA DVCS Connector enables small teams to use a robust issue tracker with Bitbucket. Today we’re excited to announce a new release of the connector on the Marketplace and OnDemand, making it easier than ever to get your small team running more efficiently with powerful development tools.

What is the DVCS Connector?

The JIRA DVCS Connector integrates your Git and Mercurial repositories with JIRA, so you can link every commit to a bug or development task.

  • Track commits in JIRA from all or a subset of your repositories, both public and private
  • Automatically discover newly created repositories and link commits to JIRA issues
  • Push your changesets to JIRA by referencing issue keys in your commit messages

Commit & Take Action

Switching between applications or even just between browser tabs can lead to distraction and lost time, so we’ve added Smart Commits for Bitbucket in the JIRA DVCS Connector. Smart commits let you update your team on progress and take action on JIRA issues, all from a single commit. Simply enter the issue key and your desired action such as closing an issue.

For more details on using Smart Commits, please see the User’s guide to Smart Commits.

Set Teams Up To JIRA With A Single Step

Syncing new JIRA users with your Bitbucket Teams is now done automatically, based on the new users’ email address. Once you connect Bitbucket to JIRA, you can add new users to both applications in a single step. Automatically send an email inviting the new developer to join your team on Bitbucket.

    Good stuff! When is Crucible OnDemand & BitBucket going to get smarter? We’ve at a watershed whether to remain with Atlassian for code reviews and the missing support is a deal breaker…

      Hi Jon,

      Thanks for the comment. Would Pull Requests with commenting give you would you needed from a code review perspective if/when commenting is added to Bitbucket?

      Looking forward to your reply.
