YouTrack 6.5 Release Candidate Is Out

We are happy to announce that YouTrack 6.5 Release Candidate is out! We’re just one step away from the final release, so it’s just the time to check what’s coming in the v.6.5.

So what’s in there?

Integration with Bitbucket and GitLab that allows you to:

  1. Apply any command to your issues from commit comment.
  2. Use commit hashes in YouTrack’s issues directly linked to the commits.
  3. See your commits on a separate tab called VCS changes.
  4. Filter the issues containing VCS changes using a search query:has {vcs changes}.


One-click Jira import

Import your Jira projects with the whole history, comments, attachments, reporters, custom fields, watchers and voters, and work items. Simply provide the link to your Jira, login and password and that’s it! Jira 5+ is supported.

Redesigned Administration UI

Please welcome a redesigned Administration part. We’ve completely reworked the way you configure your projects, custom fields, notifications, workflows. We are sure that a new look and feel will optimize your configuration process.Administration_VCS+integration

Project Wizard

We dramatically simplified the process of creating a new project. Now you only need to fill in two fields. YouTrack automatically creates a Project Team user group with a Developer role for a new project. So you need to invite your team members or add users/groups to your new project to get started.

We’ve also changed the way you edit your projects:

      Hi Alexander,
      Support for GitLab CE is not included into the v.6.5. It will be introduced a little bit later.

    Hello! Why doesn’t a command entered in Bitbucket commit message execute on Youtrack?

    I have setup connection between Youtrack project and Bitbucket repository and it works. However it only links the commit to the issue, instead of working with Youtrack commands. For example, I want to add time spent as ‘work Development 1h’ command. That part of comment was added as text.

      Hi Anatoliy,
      A command should be prefixed with #issue-id or ^issue-id. If you specify the command this way and it still does not get applied, it can be the case that a Bitbucket user could not be matched with YouTrack user. Does the user get resolved in your case?

          In case you mean user matching, then no, it can not be disabled since YouTrack needs an author in order to execute a command on behalf of it.
          The user is matched the following way. Email address is retrieved from a commit raw user details (this is what you configure in your git client), then YT retrieves Bitbucket user by this email. In case the name of the user is the same as the commit’s author, the email is used to search for a YouTrack user.
