A new issue tracker for Google Maps APIs
Tuesday, March 14, 2017
Posted by Kasia Derc-Fenske, Technical Solutions Engineer Manager, Google Cloud and Jesse Scherer, Technical Program Manager, Cloud Platform Support
Starting today, we’re working on facilitating better collaboration between you and the Google Maps APIs product teams, by upgrading to Issue Tracker, a tool we also use internally at Google. We have migrated all issues from the old
tracker to the new Issue Tracker hosted at
New Google Issue Tracker
Old Google Code issue tracker
Getting started with Google Issue Tracker should be easy. Check out our
for more information about how to create, edit, search, and group issues. By default, Google Issue Tracker only displays issues assigned to you, but you can easily
to show a hotlist of your choice, a bookmark group or saved searches. You can also
adjust notification settings
by clicking the gear icon in the top right corner and selecting settings. For more information, check out the discussion of notification levels in the
The Google Maps APIs bookmark group
Searching for product-specific issues
Opening any code.google.com issue link will automatically redirect you to the
. You’ll be able to find all of the issues from code.google.com in the Issue Tracker, including any issue you have reported, commented on, or
. If you feel like anything is missing,
let us know
(how meta!) -- we have backups available!
Google Issue Tracker organizes issues into a component hierarchy. Starting at the
Google Maps APIs bookmark group
, you can drill down to a particular product's issues. And because each product (and some product features) have their own component, you can easily search for them. For example, you can view all
Google Maps JS API v3
Places API reports
, which correspond to the old tracker’s full list for Maps API JS v3 and Places API. You can find the full list of Google Maps APIs components in the
of our developer documentation. To search within those issues, leave the component ID in the search bar; removing it will search public issues from all Google products.

The Google Maps APIs team wants your feedback!
Your feedback is important to us and makes a big difference! Make sure to take advantage of the starring feature for any issues you’re interested in to help us prioritize. As an example, after reviewing your feedback, we recently implemented Styled Maps for
Google Maps Android API
(received 365 stars) and
Google Maps SDK for iOS
(received 245 stars).
Please continue helping us improve our products by reporting issues and feature requests!
