Git the whole picture in JIRA

In October we introduced our feature branching workflow – a simple and fool-proof way to get started with Git branching for those using Bitbucket with JIRA, SourceTree and Bamboo.

Today, we are excited to bring you our latest integration feature; the development panel in JIRA. Keep team leads, project managers and product owners informed about development progress taking place in Bitbucket with this new JIRA integration.

All the right info in the right place

You’ve just been asked the ever pressing question, “What’s the status of this issue? Is the code review complete? Are we ready to ship?” From each JIRA issue, you can see branches, commits, status of pull requests, builds, and deployments all at a glance.


No longer will you be clicking through tabs and scrolling for updates, nor will you have to dig through your repos and reviews. Within seconds of opening a JIRA issue you can check out the progress of any JIRA issue and where it is in development. All the most relevant development information is surfaced from within JIRA.

Details you need; traceability you want

The development panel is perfect when you are looking for a quick update, however sometimes you need even more specific details. Deep diving into any of the items shown in the new development panel is as simple as clicking on the link to learn more.


You can even move seamlessly between JIRA, Bitbucket and Bamboo with bi-directional links between your issues, source and builds.
