Looking for a Git Bug Tracker? Look No More.

Integrated Git issue tracker

Forget about setting up a Git repository and an issue tracker locally only to have an integrated Git repository with a bug tracking system to run your software project.

With Assembla, you have an integrated system at your fingertips - just install a Tickets tool and a Git tool to your Space - that’s it, you are done setting up, let the work begin. Out of the box, you will be able to reference tickets from your commit messages - just write “re #1” in your commit message and a link to the commit will appear on ticket #1.

Git bugtracker - integrated repositories and issue tracking

  • Change ticket statuses - just naming a ticket status - “Fixed #1” - will place a link in the ticket to the commit and change the ticket status to Fixed.
  • Track time - enter a record of how much time you spent working on a particular task by using  “Fixed #1 Time: 1h30min” to your commit message.

Want more integration?

Are people making commits to the repository, which you can’t trace back? Well, we have a solution for you. With our new custom server side hooks feature you don’t need to ask everyone to create a pre-commit hook on their machine. Just install a server side hook to your repository to reject the commits that do not contain a ticket reference - nobody will be able to push a new commit that is not related to a particular ticket.

Even more integration?

Need more automation in your workflow? You can write your own server-side hooks, which we will review and put on our servers for you to install. Just send us a merge request!
