    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for the suggestion. We know folks would like it. We are not spending much time on the issue tracker right now so it is unlikely you will see this feature soon.

    I have the same request. I think the BitBucket issue tracker is *almost* perfect... This is just about the only thing I'd like to see changed.

    Even just a simple bulk assign & bulk change state would be enough.

  3. Chad Davine

    I agree - this is really needed. Going through one issue at a time to change the status individually or to assign individually is brutal. Please add this feature!

  4. David Kelly

    It's closing in on three years since this was requested. How can BitBucket not have such a basic feature? It's embarrassing!

  5. Simon Drabble

    +1 for this. Is there a way for community contributions to be accepted? Not saying I have cycles to work on the feature, but someone who needs it might. It's now 3+ years since the feature was requested, so

    "We are not spending much time on the issue tracker right now so it is unlikely you will see this feature soon."

    seems to lose a little validity, for any reasonable definition of "soon".

  6. Andrew Angell

    If only we could merge GitHub and BitBucket into a 3rd system that does everything we want. Sigh...

  7. Rafael Trestini

    +1 - please guys... this feature will not put BB's issue tracker in position to challenge JIRA. It's a simplest and extremely needed feature.

  8. James Crawford

    Can BB not see the benefit of this feature? multi select to close, resolve or assign to a single user would be a HUGE time saver, 'Why are we not funding this???'

    I'm afraid it's not on the roadmap and losing out priority-wise to other projects.

    Not to be a Debby Downer, but it might be possible for external developers to add this functionality as a Connect Add-On that adds bulk-edit directly into the UI and uses the API to perform the operations.

    @evzijst Does that mean we have to allow a 3rd party access to private repo info just to do basic issue editing that should be default?

    It is really odd that there's no checkbox column in issue lists for bulk edits.

  11. Joe Hana

    "odd"? Its actually more frustrating, dissapointing and ridiculous...Project/Repo Management - welcome in 2016 -.-

  12. Mike Wallace

    @evzijst OK, so it's not on the roadmap, this is what I thought. This is a feature that you want to reserve for Jira and use as incentive for us to upgrade. That is fine with me, you guys are in business, I understand that. Can Atlassian please just take a stand on this so I can finally stop following this issue and you guys can close it?

  13. Peter Borbely

    You can still use the API and update a bunch programmatically Yes it takes a little effort, but it's free :)

  14. Lucas Sandery

    @datafunk A disproportionate amount of effort for the simplicity and common need for the task.

  15. Peter Borbely

    @lucas_thereitis can be and I hear you, but for what it's worth, I just used a DHC REST client (chrome) and updated 40 issues in 2 minutes and yes, fair enough, if we had a few hundred issues, a script would do a better job (and would take more time). It's fair to ask to take a stand on it as you just said, I just offered an alternative because I just tackled the same problem..., that's all

    Sad to see so little development in the issue tracker. I'm in the middle of migrating my repos from Github and discovered this very basic function that I use daily on Github is missing and not planned for in BitBucket.
