AtlassianStashToday’s development community has grown out of development teams in same room to development teams across globe. GIT has emerged as one of the most popular version control system. Atlassian has launched Stash to solve this challenge of having GIT code repositories centralized behind firewall. Simplicity at its best, all the configuration that is required is create your project, add the repositories and give permissions.

Stash helps in following ways for different teams:

  • Development Teams need a way to develop quickly and share their Git source code in a central location
  • Businesses need an efficient way to keep repositories organized, secure, and on their own servers
  • IT Administrators need a reliable system that can be configured to fit into their environment

Stash comes with following advantages to manage GIT repositories:

  • Repository management: Add users and groups, create and manage repositories, and use Stash’s Project Structure to logically group your repositories
  • Works in your environment: Designed for reliability and performance to support your growing Git repositories within the safety of your firewall.
  • Connect your code to your issue repository: Connect JIRA and Stash for traceability between issues and source.
  • Source browsing: Browse repositories, drill into changesets, explore files & file history and view diffs

Key to Stash is the Project structure, providing a simple user interface for managing multiple repositories and crucially slashing the IT overhead that comes when using Git in the enterprise world.


Atlassian say that with Stash 'Developers can trust that they will find the latest official version of a project. Managers can trust that users’ access to code is appropriate for their role, and assigned with minimal administrative overhead.'
