Are there plans to provide support for mercurial or git in atlassian on demand?
Wondering whether the bitbucket acquisition is any indication of more integrated future support.
There certainly are plans to support both Mercurial and Git on the OnDemand platform in the near future. Our downloadable versions of FishEye/Crucible already support this functionality so as soon as our developers are able to bundle the latest version of FishEye on the OnDemand platform then this functionality will then be supported. We don't currently have a date when FishEye v2.7 will be available on the OnDemand platform but our developer are working hard to get it bundled, although the only timeline I can currently provide you with for this is "soon". I understand you will be impatient to start using Mercurial and/or Git repositories, however we won't bundle a product version until all the integration is completed and the new version will be at least as stable as the old version was. We undesrtand that providing new functionality is important, but not at the expense of the stability of the system. So, to answer your question, we will be providing Mercurial and Git support soon and therefore I'd suggest you keep an eye on our blogs for when the announcement is made that OnDemand now support Mercurial and Git.
All the best,
If you want to dig into more detail on this, there is a pretty hotly debated feature request here:
For now, the highlighted comment is the last official update... and it is due for an update in the near future.
It's possible to link a bitbucket or GitHub repository to JIRA OnDemand today. Setting up these links will display commits in JIRA issues and Activity Streams.
Next we plan to open up Bamboo OnDemand to build from bitbucket and GitHub repositories. This will be available in the February/March time frame.
A built-in repository management tool for git repositories will follow in late Spring / early Summer (Northern Hemisphere seasons).
I think there is value in an integrated user experience for cross-referencing changesets in the Fisheye UI with tickets in JIRA, regardless of the VCS behind it. We have repositories in a mixture of SVN and Git right now, and potentially some of the SVN would move to Hg. It'd be nice for all teams to acclimate to one way of browsing their source online.
I may not have enough experience with the products yet to give you a more intelligent answer, but from browsing around on this forum, it appears there are other users with the same request. The only comment on my original question makes this request, as do many of the 'related' links on the sidebar.
As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
