CodeStream Integration with Jira Streamlines Developer Workflow

CodeStream brings the power of your issue tracker or project management tool into your favorite IDE, such as Visual Studio Code, IntelliJ IDEA, or PyCharm. It includes a bidirectional integration with most popular issue trackers such as Jira, GitHub Issues, Trello and Asana, allowing you to grab a ticket, advance its status, create a branch and let your team see what you are working on, all with just two clicks.

The Jira integration allows you to streamline your development workflow and reduce context switches. All of your Jira tickets are displayed in CodeStream’s Tasks Tab.


There, you can create a custom filter using JQL to control which tickets appear and you can preview the query results to verify you've got it right.


In addition, you can add tickets directly to your issue tracker while commenting on code, or while performing a code review in CodeStream.  Just click the “lightbulb” icon or pick the “bug” icon to open a dialog box when you can describe the issue and create it in Jira.  You can also choose to share this in Slack or Microsoft Teams.


The ticket will then appear both in CodeStream and Jira, and will link to the code it refers to in your IDE.  By clicking on the Jira icon in the CodeStream issue, you can jump directly to the same ticket in Jira.
