Uncover the true status of an issue

Jira issue status is an unreliable indicator of issue progress. Git Integration for Jira overlays development activity in issues and across projects to give planners rich insights into where work stands.
GitLens turns a complex Git commands into a clear, navigable map of your project’s history.

Dive into development activity

See branches, commits, pull requests, tags, deployments, and more from within the context of an Issue. Go even deeper to see which files were changed, view code diffs, and get a rollup of activity on the issue.
Full commit messages, authorship, files, and more are available on the Jira issue view

Spot issues missing updates

Nobody likes opening multiple browser tabs to dive into the details of every issue. The timeline view lets you quickly scan across epics, sprints, and projects to see when and how issues were updated.
Timeline view combines Jira and Git activity with a heatmap of days an issue was updated

Understand and address project risks

Keeping projects on track requires constant attention and the ability to find and triage issues that aren’t getting the required attention. Git Integration for Jira gives you the tools to spot trends and address them before they become a larger issue.
Transform your code review process into a proactive, multiplayer experience.

Identify off-track sprints

The Backlog view is your home for monitoring sprint progress. View audits to see when issues are added or removed from a sprint, scan daily activity, and get alerted if a sprint is off track.

Compare branches and tags in Jira

Use the Repository Browser to compare branches or tags and see a diff of issues (or commits). Perfect for verifying work is completed as expected and then building release notes. Plus you can easily spot commits without a Jira issue key and then manually associate them to the appropriate issue(s).

Automate issue updates

Use DevOps automation trigger rules or smart commits to enable developers to keep the broader team informed without manually updating issues. Update issue status, comments, time logged, and more just by performing your normal dev workflow.
Automation rules can be triggered off commits, branches, PRs, builds, and deployments.

Integrate Your Way

Every organization has different requirements and environments, but most integration apps don’t account for those nuances. Git Integration for Jira offers unmatched flexibility and control of how your repositories integrate with Jira. This minimizes connection interruptions and ensures the app serves your teams. Plus it works with any Git hosting provider – cloud or self managed.
