Enable an issue tracker

You can choose whether your Bitbucket project includes an issue tracker or not. You need administrator permission for the repository to have access to the Bitbucket repository settings.

Enabling the Issue Tracker

  1. Go to a repository's  settings.
  2. Select Issue tracker settings from the left hand tabs.
  3. Check the option for either a Private issue tracker or a Public issue tracker.
    The system saves your selection and the Issue Tracker item appears in the repository's menu bar.   

How the Issues service supports the issue tracker

The Issues service allows you to move issues through the tracker by adding <issue#> <command> keywords in your commit messages.  For information on using these in your commit messages, see Resolve issues automatically when users push code.

    Issue tracker settings produces a blank screen on two of my four projects. Not sure about what to do.
