Integrate YouTrack

JetBrains TeamCity

Integrate YouTrack with TeamCity to synchronize your issues with the changes made in a specific build in TeamCity. For example, an issue can be fixed automatically by mentioning its ID in TeamCity change comment, and the build number is then added automatically in YouTrack.

All changes made via TeamCity are displayed on the TeamCity Changes tab, also indicating the committer. Read more to configure this integration.

Version Control Systems

YouTrack integrates with most VCS via TeamCity. When you type any YouTrack command in a VCS commit comment, it is applied to the issue associated with that commit. For example, if you commit files with a comment like #JT-1787 fixed tag to be documented, JT-1787 will be closed and tagged as "to be documented".

You are welcome to use the free TeamCity version as a bridge between YouTrack and your VCS. You need to create at least one build configuration in TeamCity and make sure that TeamCity lists your commits. You don't even need to actually build anything.


Type any YouTrack command in the commit comment and it will be applied to the mentioned issue. All changes will be made with the committer's account. Use commit hashes in YouTrack issues to provide direct links to GitHub commits. Follow this tutorial to configure the integration.

JetBrains IDEs

YouTrack integrates with IntelliJ IDEA, PhpStorm, WebStorm, PyCharm, RubyMine, and AppCode. Manage your tasks, features and bugs right from the IDE. Browse the list of your issues and correlate it with VCS commits.

For example, choose the task to work on or create a new one, set its state to 'In Progress' right from the IDE, and close it from the commit comment. Configure the integration.

Authentication Modules

Log in to YouTrack using your Google, GitHub, Active Directory, Yahoo, AOL, OpenID, LDAP or even Jira credentials. All you need to do is to first enable and configure the appropriate authentication module.
