JIRA Issues in Visual Studio

Seamless Issue Viewing

The Atlassian Connector for Visual Studio allows you to easily display issues from a JIRA server in Visual Studio. You can quickly search for issues on your server or issues that are already displayed in Visual Studio. Information for individual issues, such as the issue summary, comments and attachments can be viewed directly in Visual Studio as well as in your browser.

Powerful Issue Filters

Issue filters that you have set up on your JIRA server are accessible from JIRA Studio via the Connector, allowing you to keep your desired information at your fingertips. Additionally, you can set up your own custom Visual Studio-specific filters to apply to issues when they are displayed in your development environment.

Comprehensive Issue Management Tools

The Atlassian Connector for Visual Studio provides you with access to a wide range of common issue functions via Visual Studio. You will be able to create issues, log work, create sub-tasks, add comments to issues, transition issues through a workflow and more, without ever leaving your developmenet environment.

Bamboo Builds in Visual Studio

Build Monitoring from within your IDE

The Atlassian Connector for Visual Studio provides a window into your build environment. Bamboo integration allows you to view the status of selected builds without having to leave your IDE.
