Use this dialog to create a list of the so-called issue navigation patterns. An issue navigation pattern maps an issue ID pattern in commit messages with the URL addresses of the referenced issues. This enables you to navigate from committed changes to issues related to these changes. As soon as IntelliJ IDEA encounters a match to the issue ID pattern in a commit message, the match is displayed as a link in the Version Control tool window Alt+9. If you mention several issues, all of them will be displayed as links. Clicking such link opens the matching issue in the default browser.
This read-only field shows the issue pattern.
This read-only field shows the link to navigate from the issue pattern in the current row to the issue in the bug tracking system.
Click this button to create a new issue navigation pattern and link. The Add Issue Navigation Link dialog opens where you can specify:

Click this button to remove the selected issue navigation link from the list.
The example below shows how IntelliJ IDEA applies the mentioned rules to detect a reference to an issue in a commit message and compose a link to it in the issue tracking system.
Issue ID pattern
A regular expression that defines the format in which issues are referenced in commit messages.
This regular expressions matches all character strings that consist of two substrings separated by an n-dash character:
A combination of the URL address of your issue tracking system and a regular expression that identifies issues in it.
Matching issue ID
IntelliJ IDEA detects the following reference to an issue in the commit message of interest:
Composed issue link
In accordance with the above issue navigation pattern, the detected matching reference is added to the URL of the tracker as is, so the link to the referenced issue is composed as follows:
