Sonatype Strengthens Continuous Delivery With New Atlassian Integrations


Fulton, MD – June 2, 2016 – Sonatype, the leader in software supply chain automation, today announced new integrations with Atlassian’s product portfolio to better support Continuous Delivery and DevOps practices.  Following up on its previous integrations with Atlassian’s Bamboo and HipChatproducts, Sonatype is announcing four Nexus integrations with Atlassian products:

Sonatype Nexus Lifecycle, Firewall, and Auditor Integration with JIRA Software

High velocity DevOps and Continuous Delivery practices depend on automated policies to identify the best open source and proprietary components to use in software builds.  Sonatype Nexus solutions enable teams to monitor applications at every stage of the software development lifecycle so they can reduce application defects and security vulnerabilities.  By integrating Nexus Lifecycle, Nexus Firewall, and Nexus Auditor with Atlassian’s JIRA Software, enterprise development organizations can now automatically initiate JIRA tickets from the Nexus products to initiate defect alerts, track remediation efforts, and reduce mean time to repair.

Sonatype Nexus Repository Integration with Bitbucket Pipelines

The release of Atlassian Bitbucket Pipelines, and its integration with Sonatype’s OSSRH -- a cloud-based service powered by Nexus Repository Pro -- enables development teams to fully automate continuous builds. The integrated solutions offer end-to-end visibility from coding new components to publishing them for global consumption.  This new integration leverages Sonatype’s Nexus Repository Pro to provide a repository hosting service for open source project binaries. Development teams can use Nexus Repository Pro running OSSRH to deploy development version binaries (snapshots), stage and promote release binaries, and sync them to the Central Repository.

“Sonatype and Atlassian have been working together and using each other’s tools for years.  All four Nexus integrations were built for developers by our developers who use Atlassian’s Bamboo, HipChat, JIRA Software, and Bitbucket every day,” said Wayne Jackson, CEO, Sonatype.  “We engineered our integrations with Atlassian to accelerate build and release capabilities, reduce the variability of outcomes, and dramatically decrease mean times to repair...all key metrics of successful DevOps practices.”

“In an era where everything is continuous, the best organizations understand that speed and quality are not opposing forces,” said Bryant Lee, Head of Ecosystem for Software Teams, Atlassian.  “We are working very closely with Sonatype to deliver new integrations into products like Bamboo, JIRA Software, and Bitbucket that help our customers unlock their next level of efficiency.”

Sonatype Nexus integration with Atlassian JIRA Software will be available on June 15, 2016.
