no option to connect dvcs repo in project administration


As explained in the documentation, I have succesfully configured JIRA and Bitbucket OAuth and am able to see the list of the repos with smart commits enabled from "DVCS accounts" menu option. However I can not see any option in project administration to link my bitbucket repo with the project. All I see is the option for svn repos. If you observe following tutorial : , it clearly displays the option to connect your dvcs repo in administration menu where as no such option I am able to find/enable. Can you suggest what I am missing in this setup?

Update : For commits to appear in JIRA (mapped with Project and Issues) we need to follow pattern described in this :
