I'm using Bitbucket to host a project and use a local JIRA server for issue tracking. All seems to work nice with the DVCS plugin, but the way the messages are displayed in the activity stream seems to be half finished.
When I tried doing a commit including the JIRA issue key in the commit message it showed up in the project as expected. It even showed up in my own activity stream, which I guess is because I used the same email in the Git setup. But other than that the message appears to be saying the commit was done by someone else.
That is in a way correct since there is no connection between the Git usage and the JIRA account. But still there is a connection; was it done on purpose? Or is there something missing?
Some suggestions for improvement:
I submitted a support request on this issue:
And the response I got was this:
Yes, I understand your point. However, JIRA doesn't associate the two accounts together. Thus, the changes only appear in Jira Activity Stream and not in your personal activity stream because it was made by "Nick Fellows" from BitBucket and not "Nick Fellows" from JIRA.
Hope it clarifies. Please let us know if you have any further doubts about this matter.
Guess that settles it.
