Fisheye and Stash overlap in a couple of ways, but in the end they serve very different purposes within an organization.

FishEye has been build to allow users to browse, search and visualise source code for a number of different version control systems, and it is really good at that. It enables you to search the entire history of your source code and view reports that are otherwise hard to get. It also allows you to connect your source code to JIRA, so you know what changes are associated with a particular issue.

Stash is an on-premises Git repository management tool that gives you a central place to create, manage, and collaborate on your source code. Stash was developed with enterprise level security in mind, allowing you to lock down your repositories with 3 levels of permissions. It also provides an awesome collaboration platform with pull requests with in-line commenting, helping you to ensure you're releasing bug free code. In addition, Stash connects to the JIRA issue tracker, letting you create bi-directional links between source code artifacts and issues by simply mentioning the issue key in a commit message.

To summarise:

- Use FishEye if you want to: browse, search, visualise or connect source code hosted in Subversion, Git, Mercurial, CVS or Perforce.

- Use Stash if you want to: host, manage and collaborate on Git repositories behind your firewall.
