Use the issue tracker
When you add a repository to Bitbucket Cloud, you also get an issue tracker. This is the place to track your project's feature requests, bug reports and other project management tasks. We keep the Bitbucket issue tracker very simple and yet somewhat flexible. It has just a few configurable fields (component, version and milestone) – you can use them any way you want.
Overview of the issue tracker
The following image shows actions you can take on this issue where to watch or vote on an existing issue.
- Issue buttons: Update the workflow stage of the issue or edit its details.
- Votes and watchers: Click these links to vote on the issue and to get notified of updates.
Create an issue for a repository
Creating bug reports, improvement requests and tasks is as simple as creating an issue of the appropriate type.
- Go to the repository's Issues in the left panel.
- Click Create Issue in the top right corner.
- Fill in the fields on the issue form:
- Press Create issue.
Click Issues in the left panel again to see your newly created issue in the issue tracker.
