Usage and admin help
Link repositories to a project
Are you on the right help page?
The following information only applies to next-gen projects.
To check which type project you need help with, look at the bottom of your project’s left-hand sidebar:
If you see an icon stating You’re in a next-gen project with Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're in a next-gen project.
If you don't, you're in a classic project. Check out our classic project documentation.
The Code feature gives you greater visibility of your teams' work by automatically linking and displaying your teams' code repositories in your project.
Enable Code in Jira for your classic Software project
Only project admins can enable and disable features on a project.
Navigate to your classic software project.
Go to Project Settings > Code.
Enable the Code feature.
A new menu item, Code, will be added to the project menu.
Linking your team’s repositories
To use the Code feature, you’ll need to connect Jira Software to Bitbucket. Learn more about integrating Jira with Bitbucket.
The Code screen will display a list of the repositories your teams work on that are associated with the current project.
To link repositories to a project, include issue keys in your branch names, commit messages and pull requests. Learn how to reference issues in your development work.
