Try Atlassian for VSCode: the new Jira Software and Bitbucket Cloud extension for Visual Studio Code

Hi Atlassian Community! 

My name is Jonathan and I work on the product integration team at Atlassian. I am pleased to announce the early access program for the Atlassian extension for VSCode. This extension brings the best of Jira Software Cloud and Bitbucket Cloud into your IDE and is available today on the VSCode marketplace (detailed installation instructions below). The extension is open source, and I would love to hear about your experience using it.

Context and action right at your fingertips

We took the power of Jira Software and Bitbucket and brought it to VSCode so you can create, manage and review work from within your IDE. Listing all features supported by this extension would take too long, instead, here are a few highlights:


Questions? We have answers!

How do I install this?

Using the Atlassian for VSCode extension is simple and does not require help from a Jira or Bitbucket administrator.

Which Atlassian product versions do I need?

The extension worths with Jira Software Cloud and Bitbucket Cloud today. You can use it standalone with either Jira Software or Bitbucket, or in combination with both.

I have an issue, how can I get help?

Please submit an issue on our public issue tracker, we’re here to help. Also, feel free to contribute as well, the extension is open source.

I've got suggestions or questions, can I give you feedback?

Yes, please! We have plans for new features, but we'd love to hear how we can make this better for you. You can send us feedback directly from VSCode, send feedback using the 'Atlassian: Open Settings' and 'Atlassian: Open Welcome' pages available in the command palette.


If you tick the "Atlassian can contact me about this feedback" box we might reach out to better understand your needs.

I've tried it and I love it!

Nice! The team would love to hear that their hard work has paid off: if you could drop us a comment in the feedback form we'd really appreciate it, that's what keeps us going! If you would like to give us a little quote we could use when we announce the feature more widely we'd be eternally grateful.



This is good news. Any idea on if/when it might work with a very large Server instance behind a corporate firewall?

Really fantastic to see, and thank you for your work on this. All of the listed features look like huge productivity boosters. While our team is on a self-hosted version and can't use it yet, I'll watch happily and hope for future compatibility

Awesome news. I'd like to second Matt here. Does it work for Jira Server too?

One more vote for Server/DC compatible version.

+1 for hosted Server compatibility

will this work for Cloud Authentication using SSO? 


I am getting: Internal Server Error.

This will save a lot of time for sure. 

I would love to see this also with non cloud Atlassian Jira / Bitbucket to work. Like the idea, want to use it, even ready to pay for it - but not with Altassian cloud.
