How to show commits on Jira issue?

I have a Jira server, and I am using Bitbucket cloud. When I prefix my commits with the issue ticket i.e. "JRA-123 - Fixing bux xyz", and then I go look at issue JRA-123 it does not show any commits.

Is this because I have a server solution for Jira, but a cloud solution for Bitbucket? Or what do I need to do in order to integrate my Bitbucket and Jira?

PS. I did google this, but there was nothing clear about this issue. Thanks in advance.

Few things to check - make sure that the Application Link to Bitbucket is set up.


Next look at permissions. In order to see the commits in JIRA the user needs the View Development Tools permission on the project.

And to add to this - connecting Bitbucket Cloud to JIRA Server works fine.

Here's the page in the docs which explains what to do:

Thank you Sam, your instructions did the trick. Now everything is linked. I appreciate the quick responses from all of you.
