The Perforce Defect Tracking Integration

About This Project


The Perforce Defect Tracking Integration (P4DTI) connects your defect tracking system to Perforce, so that you don't have to switch between them and enter duplicate information about your work. It also links changes made in Perforce with defect tracker issues, making it easy to find out why a change was made, find the work that was done to resolve an issue, or generate reports relating issues to files or codelines.

Please see the P4DTI product information page for a more detailed description.

Please see the release-notes.txt file for supported defect trackers and platforms, support information and fixed issues. See the readme.txt file for installation instructions.



Full documentation is included with the P4DTI distribution. The documentation is also available here in the Perforce Public Depot for easy browsing.

The P4DTI is open source, and a documented integration kit is available for those who want to adapt the software for their own needs or extend it to do new things. The kit includes sources, design documents, the P4DTI Integrator's Guide, and build procedures.
