Atlassian Introduces JIRA Studio 2.1 - Hosted Development Suite, Integrated with Google Apps

Atlassian today announced it has added JIRA Studio to the Google Apps Marketplace™, Google's recently launched online storefront for Google Apps™ products and services. JIRA Studio is a hosted software development suite that supports every role of a high-performing development team through all stages of the development process. JIRA Studio combines hosted Subversion source code management, issue tracking, wiki collaboration, agile project planning, source code browsing, code review, continuous integration and more into a single experience for development teams.

"Google Apps is a great productivity suite for teams of all shapes and sizes," said Mike Cannon-Brookes, Atlassian's co-founder and CEO. "JIRA Studio is now the perfect complement for developers and technical teams using Google Apps, and the integration between the two means developers can flow naturally between mail, calendar, docs and the tools they use to develop great software."

JIRA Studio 2.1 combines Atlassian's most popular development tools with hosted Subversion source control into a fully-integrated, hosted system that gets development teams up and running in minutes. The new release adds integration with Google Apps, Google's popular suite of business applications, which enables customers to:

  • integrate user management and single sign-on: JIRA Studio users are synchronized with the Google Apps membership directory, and users of JIRA Studio logon with their Google login using OpenID.
  • access JIRA Studio from Google universal navigation links: JIRA Studio 2.1 is listed in the Google Apps Marketplace and can be installed directly to your domain. When JIRA Studio is added to Google Apps, it is available from the Google universal navigation links alongside other Google Apps products like Google Calendar™ and Google Docs™. 
  • attach Google Docs to JIRA issues: Users in JIRA Studio can attach items within Google Docs to any JIRA issue, sending those items through a JIRA workflow or including them as related content to a task, defect or issue. Anything available from within Google Docs is attachable, and users can preview items before attaching them to JIRA issues.
  • embed Google Docs within wiki pages: Users in JIRA Studio can attach and embed Google Docs items into any wiki page, blending content from both systems together. Anything available from your Google Docs window is attachable, and users can preview items before attaching them to wiki pages.
  • embed lists of Google Docs within wiki pages: Users in JIRA Studio can display a list of items from Google Docs on any wiki page, sharing important project information with their team.
  • exchange gadgets: JIRA Studio is an OpenSocial™ container and supports OpenSocial Gadgets. OpenSocial Gadgets can be added to the JIRA Studio dashboard, and JIRA Studio gadgets can be added to Gmail™ or iGoogle™, which act as OpenSocial Gadget containers.
  • track activity across both Google Apps and JIRA Studio through the JIRA Studio Activity Bar: the JIRA Studio Activity Bar is pervasive across the entire JIRA Studio experience and serves as a universal inbox for information from both JIRA Studio and Google Apps. From Google Apps, the Activity Bar highlights unread Gmail messages, upcoming Google Calendar events, recently accessed Google Docs and Google Sites™. From JIRA Studio, the Activity Bar highlights recent activity from across the system through an activity stream, recent JIRA issues, favorite wiki pages, build activity and assigned code reviews. The Activity Bar also features Google Talk™ integration so users can chat with team members from any page within Studio.

"JIRA Studio is an extremely useful integrated app for development teams using Google Apps," said Scott McMullan, Google Apps Partner Lead for Google Enterprise. "And the JIRA Studio Activity Bar is a wonderful example of the value integrated 3rd party apps bring to Google Apps."

JIRA Studio 2.1 is available now for a free, 30-day trial through the Google Apps Marketplace at More information about Atlassian JIRA Studio integrated with Google Apps can be found at
