What's New in Aiveo 1.3.0


Aiveo version 1.3.0 was released today, and it's packed with a bunch of new features! We'd like to thank all the users who provided feedback, and hope that everyone will enjoy this new release.


We've brought back pricing plans, based solely on the number of users. This change will only affect new portals. Existing portals have been given the Condor package for free, allowing for unlimited users.

Customizable State Colors

You can now select custom colors for states. States for work item types can now follow the color scheme that you feel is best.

Tags & Keywords

You can now manage a list of tags for each project, and assign these tags to work items. Work items can be filtered based on their tags.

Git Integration

We've introduced the ability to modify work items using commit comments in Git. Initially we are only supporting BitBucket and GitHub, but let us know if you would like support for another repository.

In order to setup your account for Git integration, please follow these steps.

  1. Go to Settings > Portal.
  2. Click generate to create a new app secret for your portal
  3. Copy and paste either the GitHub or BitBucket URL below, depending on your repository you would like to integrate with
  4. Use the URL from step 3 to setup webhooks in either GitHub or BitBucket. You can find instructions on how to do this at either https://developer.github.com/webhooks/creating/ or https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/manage-webhooks-735643732.html
  5. You also may need to setup user aliases in your Account page, or from the Settings > Users page in Aiveo so that we can tie a commit to your user in Aiveo.

Your account should now be ready to accept commands from Git commits. You can use commands using the following commit message syntax.

<Ignored text>

[Work Item ID] [-c <comment>] [-t <time in hours to log>] [-s <state to change work item to>] [-a <assignee to change work item to>]

An example for this would be:

Changed some files...

ACME-123 -c This is ready for review. -s In QA -t 1.5 -a [email protected]

Keep in mind that the parameters for the command (-t, -c, -s, -a) can be in any order and are all optional.


Releases have been renamed to milestones. This doesn't impact Aiveo's functionality, it's a purely cosmetic change. We feel that milestones is a more suitable term than releases because goals don't necessarily have to be based on release dates.

Time Summary

A time summary page has been added to Aiveo. It lets you see the amount of time you spent on each work item during a chosen week.

Time Logs for Work Items

Each work item page now has a time log tab, where you can look at the various time log entries associated with each work item. This should make it easier to see how time has been spent completing each work item.

Please let us know in the comments below if you have any questions.
