Issue #4360 resolved

Issue page should list commits referring to it (BB-4864)

Brendon Rapp
created an issue

Commit messages that include an issue number automatically have that issue number turned into a link to the issue.

However, the issue pages themselves have no indication that a commit is referring to them - ie. there's no traversal in the other direction, from issue to referring commit.

It would be ideal if there were a "Referring Commits" section added to the issue page, linking to the commits referring to that particular issue.

As it stands now, I manually paste the truncated commit hash into a comment to create a link from an issue to a related commit, but it would be nice if this were not necessary. It would be great to have a bi-directional linking relationship established solely from referencing the issue number in the commit message.

    I've been searching for this type functionality here on bitbucket for about an hour this morning. I just moved my repositories from github to bitbucket and this is a feature that I miss. I would love to see this added.

    Are you sure that your desired functionality is not provided by Bitbucket?

    I'm using the integrated issue tracker and when i commit something with a message like " ref #123 i've done something ", bitbucket links the "#123" to the issue in my issue tracker and in my issue tracker the issue has a new comment like

    ref #123 i've done something → <<link to the commit>>

    You can also have similar functionality when linking your project with other issue trackers like PivotalTracker or JIRA.
