How to create an issue

Use Stepsize to create better, more actionable issues right here in your code editor.

Traditional issues lack context and visibility. Stepsize issues have powerful context built in from the start, and are visible throughout your software development cycle. All without leaving your codebase.

How to create an issue in your editor 🪄

  1. Select the snippet of code you want to create an issue from

  2. Use the shortcut [^/I] to create your issue, or right click and select Create a technical issue

  3. Add context to your issue, such as a title, description, and impact

  4. Hit Create issue to finish creating your issue

Congratulations! You've created a Stepsize issue. You can now see the Stepsize inline annotation indicating that there is an issue attached to this snippet of code.

None of your code goes into the Stepsize cloud. The Stepsize integrations have been designed with privacy in mind. See our Information Security Guide for more detail.
