Atlassian Unveils Enterprise-Grade, Git Fork-Based Workflows in Stash 2.4 [Manufacturing Close - Up]

(Manufacturing Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Atlassian, a provider of enterprise collaboration software for product development teams, announced Stash 2.4, an update to its on- premise Git repository management system for enterprise teams.

According to the company, this release adds support for forking, a distributed development workflow popularized in open source development, along with per-repository permissions. Stash 2.4 helps development teams set up distributed code collaboration workflows that offer open source-style development flexibility with the enterprise-grade security and fine-grained permission control necessary for building software in the enterprise. Atlassian Stash now supports distributed workflows based on forking or branching, offering users and teams a choice of how to best work with code in a distributed enterprise environment.

"With Stash 2.4 we're offering the choice, flexibility and control needed to adopt any Git workflow in the enterprise," said Giancarlo Lionetti, group product marketing manager for Atlassian's development software products. "Enterprises can now replicate the benefits of an open source model with the security they need to maintain control and accountability. It's the 'best of both worlds' - the flexibility and innovation of open source coupled with the fine- grained control necessary for enterprise software development." Small agile teams as well as large corporate companies - including eBay, EMC, Southwest Airlines, Tesla Motors, Verizon and Netflix - have adopted Stash to manage how they share and collaborate on code using Git behind their firewalls. Stash adds even more momentum to the Git revolution by drastically lowering the barrier-to-entry for Git adoption and improving the enterprise- level management and control for distributed development. The new features in Stash 2.4 include: -Fork support: any user can fork a project through Stash, insulating code from the original author to unwanted changes or errors. The original author can receive feedback or improvements in the form of pull requests.

-Personal repositories: developers now have the freedom to innovate and store their private snippets of work, kick-start their own project, contribute a bug fix for a project they are not a member of, or add a feature to a common component maintained by a small group in an organization.

-Fine-grained access control: Global permissions to provide control or delegate user and group access to all Stash projects, project permissions to control read and write access per-project and per-repository permissions to open up specific repositories to users and groups.

Stash accommodates any Git development workflow an enterprise development team may choose. Enterprise teams building software can now set up controls or permissions at the project, repository or branch level, increasing both development and administrative flexibility. For example, with repository permissions, administrators can restrict access to specific repositories for new developers or contractors, permitting them only to view a repository or fork the code (make a copy on the server-side) to work on it separately without risk to the master repository. Through a pull request, these restricted developers then ask for permission to contribute. Stash enables developers to innovate and create code within the requirements established by the team lead or repository manager.

"Whether you're a new member to an enterprise development team or you want to help another development team within your company, Stash can make that happen," continued Lionetti. "Stash lets you choose how you and your teams work with distributed code, and that flexibility means you can work and ship faster." Stash 2.4 is now available and offers a free 30-day trial.
