Smart Commits from Bitbucket Server work with JIRA Software 7.1+. For more details on using Smart Commits, see Using Smart Commits in Bitbucket Server.
Application links diagnostics
Bitbucket Server now bundles a completely overhauled Application Links experience that comes with built-in diagnostics and link status lozenges.
Now you can see what’s going on with your integrations and easily get the troubleshooting information you need to resolve any broken links.
For now, you'll see the new diagnostics if you're a system admin and you only connect to Atlassian server (not Cloud) applications using OAuth authentication. Read more about the new application links.
