Now you can chat with YouTrack Jabber-Bot, share Zendesk tickets with YouTrack, enjoy new workflows and more!

Key features in YouTrack 4.2:

  • Chat with YouTrack Jabber-Bot: Send search queries, apply commands to specific issues, and ask for help directly from your Jabber. Just check short demo about talking YouTrack.

  • Integration with Zendesk: Share your Zendesk ticket with YouTrack to create a new issue in YouTrack and automatically synchronize further changes between Zendesk and YouTrack. Please see configuration details.

Other important changes include:

  • Many new useful workflows: to detect +1 in the comment and suggest voting; be reminded to add an attachment to your comment; use a blacklist for spam filtering; add work items automatically; and more.
  • A new "Visible to" command and search query: Now you can directly define the group your issue/comment is visible to, and search for issues visible to a particular user group.
  • A new "Delete" command: Now you can delete multiple issues at once by applying the delete command, instead of deleting each issue separately from its full issue screen.
  • Mailbox integration enhancement: No more quoted text in comments generated from emails.
  • Performance improvements: With YouTrack 4.2, you can track faster than ever before.

Please check YouTrack blog  for more details.

Keep tracking with pleasure!
