Jira Studio is Atlassian’s hosted software development suite that integrates hassle-free Subversion hosting with all of Atlassian’s fast, simple tools for building great software.
Because Jira Studio runs in a hosted environment, we’ve been able to add some features that are not yet available in our download products, even after following our in-depth product integration guide. A previous post highlighted Studio’s unified activity streams. This time, let’s take a look at updating issues with your Subversion commit messages.

Much more than SVN comments

If you’ve used Jira with Fisheye or Bamboo, you’re probably familiar with adding Jira issue keys to your commit messages to link source and builds to your issues. This is a great way to provide visibility into the true progress of work on your issues.
Studio_Commit_Comment.pngJira Studio provides the same functionality, and goes beyond by allowing you to update your issues with your commit messages, speeding up a task you’ll do several times every day you’re coding. This easy-to-use feature let’s you:

  • Log work on an issue.
  • Add a comment to the issue.
  • Move issues through workflow transitions

More details on this feature can be found in the Jira Studio documentation.
