Bitbucket Server setup

Tags: Flow

Below is a step by step guide on how to get started with BitBucket Server. If your repositories are behind a firewall, please whitelist our IPs on port 443 over HTTPS.  You also need a public DNS record pointing to the IP address that is being exposed for Flow analysis.  This DNS entry should match the TLS/SSL certificate that the server is utilizing.

Important: We strongly recommend you use a service account to create this Integration. Please see How to create a service account for instructions and information about why service accounts are important.

BitBucket Server configuration

Follow the BitBucket Server's instructions to create a user. Make sure to set the username and password when your create the user and remember it for later.

Important: Do not check the box to email the user with a link to set their password.

Once you've created the user, click Change permissions, then search for the user you just created and click Add. Click the Admin checkbox for the user you just added. Learn more about BitBucket Server's global permissions.

On your Flow home page, go to the top navigation bar and click Settings. Using the left navigation under Integrations, click Integrations. 

Click Add Integration in the top right hand corner of you integrations screen.  On the following page select Bitbucket Server from the Integration Provider list and click Next.

  • Username/Password -  You can connect to your account using your BitBucket credentials under the Username/Password tab. Input your credentials and base URL and click Test connection.
    If the connection was successful you will see a success message.
