YouTrack is a proprietary, commercial browser-based bug tracker, issue tracking system and project management software developed by JetBrains. It focuses on query-based issue search with auto-completion, manipulating issues in batches,[2] customizing the set of issue attributes,[3] and creating custom workflows.[4]


YouTrack uses the language-oriented programming[5] paradigm and now is written on JavaScript and Kotlin (programming language). It uses an embedded Xodus[6] database to read and store data. For remote procedure calls, YouTrack supports a RESTful API.

Integration with external tools

Standard YouTrack integrations include import from Jira, Mailbox Integration, Zendesk Integration, and an integrated working environment with Upsource and TeamCity. Integrations with GitHub, BitBucket, and GitLab are provided out of the box, while connections to other version control systems are supported via the TeamCity or Upsource integration. TeamCity supports connections to repositories in ClearCase, CVS, Git, Mercurial, Perforce, SourceGear Vault, StarTeam, Subversion, Team Foundation Server, and Visual SourceSafe. Upsource supports connections to repositories in Git, Mercurial, Perforce, and Subversion.

YouTrack supports integration with several popular test management tools: PractiTest, TestLink, TestLodge, and TestRail.

YouTrack can be integrated with Slack workplace.

Confluence integration is performed by adding macros to insert links to issues and insert reports into Confluence Pages.

YouTrack can integrate with JetBrains IDEs.

YouTrack is capable of importing issues from Jira, CSV file, Bugzilla, FogBugz, GitHub, MantisBT, Redmine, Trac, or another YouTrack Server.

YouTrack also supports user authentication.

User interface

YouTrack's Ajax-based user interface allows both keyboard and mouse interaction. Searching for issues is implemented via search query syntax and performed from a single search box.[7]

System requirements and distribution types

YouTrack provides localization support for many languages.

YouTrack is cross-platform and works on any Java-enabled operating system.

YouTrack is available as either InCloud or Standalone.


YouTrack REST API[8][9] allows developers to perform various actions programmatically, including:


JetBrains offers YouTrack in InCloud and Standalone versions.

The hosted service (SaaS) is called YouTrack InCloud. For InCloud, three users are free of charge forever, with further annual or monthly payments per each additional user discounted with larger numbers of users subscribed.

For the Standalone version, a 10-user pack is available free of charge, with five more paid packs available for larger numbers of users. Each pack includes a year of free updates and technical support.

JetBrains also provides YouTrack at no charge for open source projects and for educational and teaching uses in classrooms, along with a discount available for startups.
