YouTrack 2.0

New Custom Attributes and RESTful API

Jessica Thornsby

Version 2.0 of the YouTrack bug and issue tracker is out now.

Version 2.0 introduces custom attributes, giving developers the ability to add additional information regarding an issue, such as data, hardware specifications or operating system, and to define who sees those attributes.

With this version, instead of opening a new browser tab to file an issue, users can add a ‘Create Issue’ bookmarklet to the bookmarks toolbar. It also features a new YouTrack RESTful API that allows issues to be imported from a bug tracking system, and gives users the ability to edit projects, users, groups, roles, and issue link types. For more information, please see the What’s New page.

A free 60-day evaluation can be downloaded now. The Starter Edition is priced at £118.
