What is Early Access Program (EAP)


JetBrains Early Access Program lets the development community evaluate YouTrack bug tracker on early development stages, participate in discussions, submit bug reports and feature requests, and otherwise influence the planning and development of the product.

We hope this EAP will be both valuable and exciting. We highly appreciate your feedback and ideas!
Please rate builds you download so that other users can judge on their quality.


It is important to distinguish EAP from pre-release software. Please note that the quality of EAP versions may at times be far below even usual beta standards.

Key Features

  • Redesign for the full-screen issue mode
  • Numerous Agile board enhancements

To switch your system language, open the Administration > Settings page (you need low-level administrator permissions to do this) and choose from four currently available language options. Plus, if are a YouTrack Stand-alone user and a desired language isn’t available yet, you can translate YouTrack on your own. Or, you could create a personal YouTrack with your own slang, if you like. A How-To guide on this topic is coming soon.

The first EAP builds also contain re-designed full-screen issue mode, and create new and edit issue screens, new contrast color scheme for Agile Board, searching for similar issues ([JT-7048|]), cloning issues , and other features, enhancements, fixes and so on.


Please note that Agile Board enhancements (feature request) are being actively developed at the moment and are not included in the EAP builds yet, so please stay tuned for updates!

YouTrack "Gentle" InCloud EAP Instance



(warning) What you need to know about this server

  • 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. So 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.
