With pleasure, Atlassian presents version 1.1 of the Atlassian Connector for Visual Studio. This plugin allows you to pull in and work with the Atlassian products within Visual Studio. Instead of switching between programs on your desktop, you can see all the information for your project right there in your development environment.

Change in Supported Platforms

As previously announced, the Atlassian Connector for Visual Studio no longer supports a number of platforms. Please see Supported Platforms - Atlassian Connector for Visual Studio for full details.

JIRA Issues in Visual Studio

Starting/Stopping Work on Issues in the Connector

The Atlassian Connector for Visual Studio now allows you to easily co-ordinate your work between Visual Studio and JIRA. You can start work on an issue with a single click, which sets the issue as the active issue. This automatically assigns the issue to you in JIRA, transitions the issue to 'In Progress', starts an internal timer to calculate the time spent and displays the issue in a convenient toolbar with common issue functions. Stopping work on the active issue pops up a window that allows to optionally log your time spent on the issue and transition the issue.

Comments when Logging Work

We've also added the ability to add comments when logging work against an issue in the connector. Simply open the log work dialogue, enter your comment and it will be displayed when viewing the work log in JIRA.

Bamboo Builds in Visual Studio

Enhanced Bamboo Build Logs

We've enhanced the Bamboo build logs displayed in the Atlassian Connector for Visual Studio. If you have the appropriate project open, you will be able to click on the class names, file paths, etc, in the log to navigate to the relevant information.

Global Configuration

Shared Servers for Solutions

Configuring a JIRA or Bamboo server for multiple solutions in Visual Studio is now much simpler. You can now set up a server once, and select for the server to be made available to all solutions in Visual Studio. The server will be already configured for you when you open up a new solution.
