Work with Atlassian to add Visual Studio Online Git integration into JIRA
This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
JIRA (https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira) is an isue tracking product and service used by over 35,000 companies around the world.
The Atlassian JIRA DVCS Connector (see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/Use+the+JIRA+DVCS+Connector+Add-on) allows for users to easily link their JIRA instance to a Bitbucket or GitHub account. This allows for source control commits to be linked to issues and for JIRA to automate workflow based on source control.
I love using Visual Studio Online Git for my source control - but my team already has a significant investment in the JIRA toolset. It would be great if we could have this same functionality with Git in VSO. VSO already has a capable REST API that could enable this.
I have created a request at Atlassian for them to implement this (see https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/DCON-456). It would be great if someone from Microsoft could reach out to them to see if they could make this happen.

Maybe with the GitHub acquisition and the already existent Jira/GitHub integration, we might see some light? :)
I'd really like to see this as well.
Wow over a year and not one comment? This would be a very powerful feature but it seems that Microsoft are unwilling to integrate with other providers? Is there any movement or thought as to whether this will take place in the near future?
