Connect your team-managed board with Bitbucket

This page is for team-managed projects

If the lower-left of your project sidebar says you're in a company-managed project, check out these company-managed project articles instead.

Learn more about the difference between company-managed and team-managed projects.

You can link your Bitbucket repo with your team-managed Software project to see your project's developer status on the board, without having to leave Jira Cloud.

  1. Navigate to your team-managed Software project.

  2. In the sidebar, click Add item, then click Add next to Repository.

  3. Enter the link to your Bitbucket repository, and type a name for the repo. This name doesn't have to match the repo's name in Bitbucket – it's just so Jira knows what to call the repo in your project menu.

  4. If your Jira Cloud site hasn't yet been integrated with Bitbucket, you'll be asked to set up the link. (If you've already done this in another project, you won't need to.)

Track developer status on your issues

You can track the status of development work in Jira by creating a branch from your Jira issue. 

  1. Open an issue on your team-managed board.

  2. Under Development, select Create branch.

See developer status on your team-managed board

Once you've linked your team-managed board and your repository, you'll see icons on your cards to show the status of each issue. Hover over these icons to see more information.

Developer status will only be displayed on cards if your board has less than 100 issues.
