Pika - Using YouTrack

Using YouTrack

Sign up for an account at: http://marmot.myjetbrains.com/

Sign up link is in the upper right


Enter the information you want on the next page.

After you sign up you will be taken to the home page YouTrack.  This can be customized if desired, but most people will want to access the issues list.  

If you are not taken to the home page, try navigating directly to https://marmot.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/dashboard

To do this, click on Issues at the top of the screen.  This will show you a list of issues for Pika.

Typically you will want to search for issues.  You can do simple keyword searches in the search box or you can search for specific things within the repository.  I.e. try searching for covers for a basic keyword search.  Or search for #Covers to find anything related to cover generation.  

There are filters on the left hand panel below the Saved Searches.  This can be used to filter by a wide variety of criteria.  For example, to only show things that are not resolved you could use the following filters.  Make sure to click the Show link to apply the filter.

New issues can be reported by clicking the Create Issue button at the top of the screen.


When creating issues, please include as much detail as you can so that we can reproduce the problem.  If you aren’t sure of how to word an issue or if you have questions about whether or not the issue should be added to YouTrack, please contact Mark.  

I highly encourage everyone to vote on issues that are meaningful to them by clicking the vote button.  Little hand icon in search results or under voters when viewing details. Voting on an issue will let me know what issues are important to people and will help me to better schedule enhancements.  

You can also add comments to issues so if you are encountering an issue that already exists in the system, please add a comment to the existing ticket rather than creating a new duplicate issue.  If you aren’t sure whether or not the original issue is similar enough, please let Mark know.

If you want to see what we are working on in any given sprint (roughly 2 weeks of development work, you can visit the Agile Boards by clicking on Agile Boards at the top of the screen.  

More complex new Features  will be shown at the top of the screen and simpler tasks and bugs will be shown at the bottom of the screen.  As work is completed the stories will flow from left to right over the course of the development cycle.  

If you want more information about any story from the Agile board you can double click the story to get more information.  

Please do not create new Issues from the Agile Board.  Please create them from the Issues Page since that allows you to enter more detail and allows us to more easily prioritize the issue.

If you have questions about development in progress, please contact pika-at-marmot.org.
