Use Jira Software Cloud projects in Bitbucket Cloud

Now that you have connected your Jira site to a Bitbucket Cloud workspace, the Jira issues tab is displayed in the left navigation sidebar of each repository. Select the Jira issues tab to display relevant projects and their issues. Relevancy is established when at least one issue key from the Jira project is referenced in a commit message or pull request. You can also link projects to repositories manually.

Prerequisites

  • Connect your Bitbucket and Jira instances.

  • To configure this feature you need to be an administrator of the sites you want to connect to.

  • To configure this feature you need to be the administrator of the Bitbucket account you want to integrate with Jira Cloud

Steps

  1. If you want to associate a Jira project to a Bitbucket repository, mention the issue key in your message or pull request. Once you add your issue key to any commit message or pull request, you will be able to access the issue view by clicking the issue key link.

Find your Jira issues quickly

You can find your issues by using the search filter or by using the site, project, and status filters located at the top of the Jira issue tab.

Turn the Jira issues tab off

  1. In Bitbucket, navigate to the settings for your workspace. You can do this by clicking your user avatar and either the workspace name or all workspaces then select the desired workspace. If you are a workspace administrator the menu will show a settings option, click Settings.

  2. Under Atlassian integrations, click Jira.

  3. Turn the “Show Jira issues tab on the repositories navigation” toggle off.
    If you turned the toggle off, the Jira issues tab won't be displayed in the left navigation bar anymore when you are in a repository.

This does not disconnect the Jira site and Bitbucket workspace so issue links and other Jira integration feature will continue to work as expected.
