YouTrack Standalone 7.0 Help

View and Edit VCS Changes

This tab displays a list of VCS commits or other VCS updates that are associated with the current issue. The total number of VCS changes is displayed on the tab itself. This tab is visible when your YouTrack server is integrated with TeamCity, Upsource, or a VCS repository.
