DevOps via the Atlassian Marketplace

Atlassian Marketplace

DevOps is built on the principles of communication, collaboration, and integration. Automate tedious tasks, stay informed with powerful alerting, and maximize productivity by connecting to all of the tools that your team uses every day to let each team member work where they are most comfortable and productive.

Atlassian’s massive DevOps Marketplace helps teams of all sizes deliver better results, faster. Read our new guide to help you get started in the DevOps Marketplace.

DevOps

DNFCS can help you connect all the tools your teams use every day, automate and integrating your Atlassian products so you can build even better software, faster.

Build and Deploy

Work with us to look at workflows across the entire DevOps lifecycle. From project planning to building, continuous integration, deploying, and beyond.

Continuous Improvement

Feel like there’e a tyranny of choices? Work with us to single out apps at each stage of the DevOps lifecycle to help you get started faster & achieve specific operational goals.

Marketplace Apps for Project Planning

Planning is a critical part of DevOps, and it’s a big effort that involves numerous teams. The goal is to get aligned around a common vision, then break requirements down into smaller individual user stories to help work move faster.

But that can be hard when each team uses different technologies for workflow configuration, budgeting and effort estimation, roadmap planning and visualization. Integrate these technologies with Atlassian to make planning more transparent, efficient, and iterative.

A few of our favorite workflows include:

Planning sprints from anywhere

No matter where you plan your sprints and store your roadmaps, meeting reports, and specs, there’s an easy app to bring it all into Atlassian and take collaboration to the next level.

Collaborate in real time in any document from anywhere. Attach Office 365 files, Google Docs, PDFs, videos, pictures, and Dropbox folders directly to Confluence pages, spaces, or even Jira tickets. Changes are reflected in Confluence or Jira in real time. Connect multiple OneDrive or Google Drive accounts, view full-size live previews, and edit documents, presentations, and spreadsheets directly in Confluence. You can also create or update Jira tickets from your Outlook email from desktop or mobile.

Try Apps like:

  • Official Dropbox for Jira
  • Outlook App for Jira
  • Google Drive & Docs App for Confluence
  • Trello-Jira 2-Way Sync

Creating and Sharing Powerful Diagrams

Charts and diagrams help improve comprehension and decision making by visualizing and structuring ideas and processes. Diagram tools are a must for visualizing and communicating flowcharts, wireframes, mockups, network diagrams, business processes and org charts.

Several marketplace apps give you powerful drag-and-drop tools to create diagrams directly in Jira and Confluence. They’re perfect for improving collaboration and communication across the entire team, from developers and project managers to systems administrators and beyond. Create and embed workflow, network, UML, entity relationship and hundreds of other diagram types. Use standard formats like Visio, PNG, and SVG so everyone can contribute.

  • eazyBI Reports and Charts for Jira
  • io Diagrams for Confluence
  • eazyBI Reports
    and Chartsfor Jira Cloud

 

Marketplace Apps as Build Tools

Coding can get messy, with multiple teams working on smaller stories across the same code base. Legacy version control systems can’t keep up with today’s pace, either — which is why most DevOps teams turn to Git to make it easier to manage large coding projects across the enterprise.

Stay on top of changes with high-level and individualized overviews of the state of your code by connecting your build automation, git repository hooks and source code management tools. To get even more from Git, connect your Jira dashboard with your favorite Git solution, unlocking powerful automated workflows that will make your building processes far more efficient.

A few of our favorite workflows include:

Viewing Git commits, branches, and tags in Jira

You’ll love being able to quickly view all your Git commits directly in Jira, with instant access to comments, authors, and even what files have recently changed. Our favorite marketplace apps work with virtually all Git servers, including Bitbucket, GitLab, GitHub, and more.

Try apps like:

  • Git Integration for Jira

Automatically highlighting code quality issues within Bitbucket pull requests

Many teams already use powerful code quality tools to continuously hunt for defects or provide useful code quality metrics. Now you can get these insights directly within Bitbucket pull requests, viewing highlighted code violations (including duplicate code) in Bitbucket Server’s diff view. You can even create a Bitbucket Server task in one click, to ensure you address quality issues quickly.

Try apps like:

  • Code Climate for Bitbucket
  • Sonar for Bitbucket Cloud
  • Sonar for Bitbucket Server

Embedding GitHub gists into Confluence pages

For Github users, Gists are a simple way to share code snippets and ideas with others, perfect for collaborating with a co-worker. To make sharing even easier, top marketplace apps allow you to simply paste any Gist URL into a Confluence page, and the Gist is automatically embedded.

Try apps like:

  • Gister: GitHub Gist Macro for Confluence

Add-ons for Automating your Workflows with Bitbucket

Connect your Bitbucket repos and issues to all your other favorite tools — from AWS and Slack to Sonar and beyond — to create powerful, fully automated workflows.

Try apps like:

  • Workato integrations for Atlassian
  • Zapier Integration for Bitbucket

 

Marketplace Apps for Continuous Integration

DevOps works best when new code changes are integrated early and often with the main branch, so you can test and catch errors quickly. To work even faster, try bringing your build, testing, and deployment technologies together with apps from the DevOps marketplace, automating processes like pull request completion and even vulnerability detection.

A few of our favorite workflows include:

Triggering automatic builds when you commit or merge code

Create your own powerful triggers that run after code is committed, updated, merged, and more — automatically notifying favorite automation solutions like Jenkins that it’s time to start building. Top apps even let you whitelist or blacklist branches you designate, or ignore commits made by certain users.

Try apps like:

  • AWS CodeBuild – Bitbucket Support
  • CircleCI – Continuous Integration for Bitbucket
  • Codeship Basic
  • Shippable CI/CD for Bitbucket
  • buddybuild for Bitbucket
  • Codefresh for Bitbucket
  • Post Webhooks for Bitbucket
  • Webhook to Jenkins for Bitbucket

Eliminating vulnerabilities automatically

A few marketplace apps are specifically designed to find security vulnerabilities automatically, scanning your repos continuously for known open-source vulnerabilities and giving you deep insight to fix them faster. They can even monitor for new vulnerabilities that impact your existing dependencies.

Try apps like:

  • SourceClear for Bitbucket Pipelines
  • Snyk for Bitbucket Server

 

Marketplace Apps for Deployment

Getting rid of a manual, scripted process is a great way to deploy more efficiently, with fewer errors. Several leading marketplace apps let you automate deployment to the host of your choice, directly from Atlassian — and even create fully configurable deployment automation rules. Error alerts can be closely integrated, bringing the insights from your favorite error tracking software directly into Jira.

A few of our favorite workflows include: 

Building and deploying packages directly within your Atlassian tools

Many of the most popular solutions for automating and managing releases also integrate with Atlassian, so you can automatically build and deploy packages easily and directly from Bitbucket or Bamboo.

Try apps like:

  • AWS CodeDeploy for Bitbucket
  • Deploy to Azure
  • RapidDeploy integration with Bitbucket
  • Blue Ocean integration for Bitbucket
  • JFrog for Bitbucket

Deploying AWS resources from Bamboo, too

There’s no need to write manual scripts for AWS deployment. Several marketplace apps integrate directly with Amazon Web Services, so you can create continuous delivery pipelines and even manage your AWS infrastructure as code.

Try apps like:

  • Tasks for AWS (Bamboo)

Getting powerful, real-time error insights — right within Jira

Knowing is half the battle, and integrating your favorite error tracking software with Jira is a great way to ensure that critical production issues aren’t overlooked. Top apps can even automatically create a Jira issue the moment your error tracker flags that something is wrong, and even give you critical error details right within Jira.

Try apps like:

  • Rollbar for Jira
  • Sentry for Jira

 

Marketplace Apps for Operations Management

Once you’ve deployed your code into production, urgent issues can still arise. Automating notifications — and even automatically creating Jira tickets — are great ways to improve reliability and supportability, getting the right people on the job quickly for even faster resolution.

A few of our favorite workflows include:

Creating and updating Jira tickets automatically

Our DevOps Marketplace includes apps that quickly connect many top monitoring and error-tracking software and services with Jira. When an alert is triggered, a Jira ticket can be automatically created or updated with detailed information from the monitoring service , and you can even define custom conditions and thresholds for which type of events to create Jira tickets for.

Try apps like:

  • AppDynamics Add-on for Jira
  • Dynatrace for Jira
  • Datadog for Jira
  • Sentry for Jira

Handling monitoring alerts in Hipchat rooms

Many monitoring services also integrate tightly with Hipchat, so you can see the open alert count and route new alerts to dedicated Hipchat rooms. Some apps even allow users to initiate investigative actions and even close alerts using simple commands directly within the Hipchat room.

Try apps like:

  • AppDynamics Alerting Add-on for Hipchat
  • OpsGenie
  • VictorOps

 

Marketplace Apps for Continuous Feedback

The best agile teams encourage feedback, and they continually optimize based on it. But feedback can quickly stack up from tons of sources — from customers and internal stakeholders to sophisticated testing and monitoring systems.

That’s why it’s important to make feedback easy to find and use, reducing clutter and empower the right people with just the right amount of information. We recommend centralizing critical feedback from all your ITSM, CRM, and testing solutions directly inside Jira, so critical insights don’t get overlooked.

A few of our favorite workflows include:

Uniting support and engineering teams by bringing ITSM tickets into Jira

Give your support teams the ability to easily escalate tickets and turn them into Jira issues, so engineering gets fast and accurate reports of bugs and other issues that may impact your customer’s experience. Our favorite Marketplace apps give your engineers a complete view of customer conversations related to each issue, and even allow your support and engineering teams to collaboratively solve issues together without having to leave Jira.

Try apps like:

  • Zendesk Support for Jira
  • Workato integrations for Atlassian
  • Sauce Labs for Jira

Closing the customer feedback loop from sales to support to development

Delivering great customer service requires knowing your customer inside and out—sales, marketing, development, and support teams. Our integrations with top CRMs (including Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, and HubSpot) give all your teams — from sales and marketing to development and support — helpful context about customer history, account info, previous communications, and feedback.

The result? Support agents can expedite troubleshooting and issue resolution by seeing recent customer activity right from their ticket resolution screen. Sales and marketing teams can create more successful strategies by reviewing support cases and understanding the history of an account. And product managers and developers can prioritize new feature requests by incorporating client information into their work.

  • Xray for Jira
  • Sauce Labs for Jira
  • QMetry for Jira

 

Real-time Communications

Improving collaboration across teams is crucial in every step of the DevOps lifecycle, which means relying less on email and more on real-time communication. To get the right information to the right person at the right time, bring automated alerts and issue details directly into the chat room of your choice.

A few of our favorite workflows include:

Automatically escalating issues to on-call teams

Since every second counts in incident response, it’s crucial that issues get routed to the right person quickly. Try powerful marketplace apps that work with Jira to automatically route issues to the right teams and people based on parameters you set. You create powerful “on-call” rosters, and the apps do the rest — evenly distributing work across your teams and even re-escalating as needed to ensure incidents are never missed.

Try apps like:

  • Elevator – Smart Issue Assignment
  • xMatters IT Alerts for Hipchat
  • Real-Time Splunk for Jira Service Desk

Managing customer conversations in Hipchat

Customers want to chat with you everywhere: on your website, inside your apps, and on a wide variety of social media channels. To keep up, many teams use popular customer engagement solutions dedicated to aggregating these conversations. To make keeping up even easier, get alerts in your team’s Hipchat rooms each time a new conversation is started, replied to, or assigned within your favorite customer engagement solution.

Try apps like:

  • Intercom for Hipchat
  • OpsGenie

Handling incidents in Hipchat, Slack, and beyond

Earlier, we mentioned that many monitoring services integrate with Hipchat, so you can get important alerts (and often even assign and update them) without leaving your team’s favorite Hipchat rooms. A few even let you use popular slash commands to trigger actions even faster, ChatOps style.

But that’s just the beginning. Our DevOps marketplace can even connect Jira to other favorite messaging and collaboration services like Slack, so you can link and manage Jira issues and projects from wherever your teams gather.

Try apps like:

  • PagerDuty Hipchat Cloud Extension
  • Rollbar for Hipchat
  • Slack Connector
  • Microsoft Teams Jira Connector
