How to Use Time Tracking In BitBucket

1. Locate timer button on a Bitbucket issue

On your project page, click the Issues tab, select an issue. A dialogue window opens, where you can view and edit the contents of the issue. You will see the Start timer button in the upper right corner of the window.

2. Start timer on an issue

Click the Start timer button and TMetric will start recording your Bitbucket working time. Notice that the Start timer button changes to the Stop timer button and displays the time spent on the to-do.

If you are the account owner or assigned admin in TMetric and start the timer for the first time, TMetric pulls out from Bitbucket and adds to your TMetric account:

  • to-do title
  • to-do ID
  • project name

The corresponding time entry appears on the Time page in the TMetric web app. You can easily navigate back to the Bitbucket to-do simply by clicking the link icon next to the task name.

3. Edit time entry, if necessary

A time entry with an external task can be edited. You can edit the name of the task and project without losing a link to the Bitbucket issue.

To disassociate the task from the Bitbucket issue, click the cross icon next to the task name in the bottom right corner of the time entry editor.

4. View a time report

Reports show the time from different external systems, as well as the time entered manually in TMetric.
