TeamCity can be integrated with your issue tracker to provide a comprehensive view of your development project. TeamCity detects issues mentioned in the comments to version control changes, turning them into links to your issue tracker in the TeamCity Web UI.
The integration is configured at the project level: the Project Administrator permissions are required. You can configure integration if you have multiple projects on both the TeamCity and the issue tracker server or if you are using different issue-trackers for different projects.
Enabling integration for the project also enables it for all its subprojects; if the configuration settings are different in a subproject, its settings have priority over the project's settings.
In this section:
When an integration is configured, TeamCity automatically transforms an issue ID (=issue key in JIRA, work item id in TFS) mentioned in the VCS commit comment into a link to the corresponding issue and the basic issue details are displayed in the TeamCity Web UI when hovering over the icon next to the issue ID (e.g. on the Changes tab of the build results).
Issues fixed in the build can also be viewed on the Issues tab of the build results.
On the build configuration home page, you can review all the issues mapped to the comments at the Issue Log tab. You can filter the list to a particular range of builds and view issues mentioned in comments with their states.
