What is Early Access Program?

We at JetBrains believe that making tools for development teams should greatly involve listening to them. Our Early Access Program lets the community closely participate in discussions devoted to our products and influence development planning, from early stages onwards. Early Access Program allows you to try pre-release versions of our product to evaluate features that will be added to the next release.

It is important to distinguish EAP from traditional pre-release software. The quality of EAP versions may at times be way below even usual beta standards. If you are looking for a stable version of YouTrack, please,   visit our site . Please note that once your instance is moved to YouTrack 7.0, it can't be downgraded back to YouTrack 6.5.

Try YouTrack 7.0 EAP

There are two options to try YouTrack 7.0 EAP:

  1. Try it on our Sandbox instance.

  2. Upgrade your newly registered InCloud instance to 7.0 version.

  3. Download a Standalone build.


To try YouTrack 7.0 on our Sandbox, please follow the instructions below:

  • For view-only mode (Guest), click here .

  • To use YouTrack as a Project Administrator, you should sign up first.

Please notice, as a Project Administrator you will get permissions to modify any projects on the current instance. We kindly ask you to respect each other and not to delete or edit any projects but yours.

Steps to move your newly registered InCloud instance to v7.0:

To upgrade your newly registered InCloud instance to 7.0 version, please do the following:

We'll move your instance within one business day.

YouTrack 7.0 Standalone Builds:

We strongly recommend evaluating YouTrack 7.0 EAP builds in a test environment!
Otherwise, you can revert to your current YouTrack version only by rolling back to a pre-upgrade backup of your database. Rolling back means that you will loose all the changes made in the EAP version!

Please refer to upgrade instructions and distribution-specific procedures before upgrading.

h2. YouTrack 6.5 InCloud EAP

As of the moment of YouTrack 6.5 EAP opening, we do not provide any EAP InCLoud instance for evaluation.

We plan to announce YouTrack 6.5 InCloud EAP later in June. Stay tuned for updates\!

If you prefer to try all the fresh goodies without any installation and configuration, simply create a user account in our [YouTrack Harmony InCloud EAP|] instance. We'll be updating it to the latest build as soon as we can deliver.

* *[YouTrack Harmony EAP Sandbox|]*

{panel:bgColor=#FFFFFF}(!) *What you need to know about this server*
* By default, all currently available features are enabled for _all users_.
* This is Early Access Program, and we reserve the right to update the server as often as we see fit, without any additional announcement, and thus you might encounter a brief periods of downtime. Please be patient.
* We might update the build, which runs on the hosted EAP instance, more often than we publish stand-alone EAP builds (e.g. for testing purposes), and thus the number of build on hosted instance and the number of the latest published stand-alone EAP build might be different.
