Bitbucket Server Repositories¶
Bitbucket Server support requires a license of Power Pack. You can download a trial license or purchase a license for your team.
Review Board supports posting and reviewing code on Git repositories hosted on Bitbucket Server.
To simplify posting changes to Review Board, we recommend using RBTools. This ensures that the diffs are in the correct format, and makes managing review requests much easier. See Using RBTools with Git for more information.
Adding the Repository¶
To configure a Bitbucket Server repository, first proceed to add the repository and select Bitbucket Server from the Hosting type field.
Step 1: Link Your Bitbucket Server Account¶
You will need to link an account on Bitbucket Server to Review Board, so that Review Board can access content from the repository. If you’ve already linked an account with sufficient access to the repository, you can use that instead.
If you’re linking for the first time, you’ll need to make sure you have your username and password handy.
Fill out the following fields:
- Service URL:
The URL to the root of your Bitbucket Server. For example,
- Account username:
The username used to log into your Bitbucket Server account.
- Account password:
The password used to log into your Bitbucket Server account.
Due to some requirements when accessing your repositories, your password will be stored in encrypted form in the database.
The account will be linked when the repository is saved. If there are errors authenticating the user or retrieving an access token, you will be prompted to fix them.
Step 2: Provide Repository Information¶
Next, you’ll need to fill out the following fields:
- Repository plan:
This specifies whether you’re linking a user-owned (personal) repository or a group (project) repository. Depending on your choice, you’ll see different options.
- Project key:
If you selected a Project Repository above, you’ll need to provide your project key here. This can be found in your project settings on Bitbucket Server.
- Repository owner username:
If you selected a Personal Repository above, you’ll need to specify the username of the user who owns the repository.
- Repository name:
You’ll then need to specify the name of your repository in the Repository name field. This is the same value you would find in the URL.
Step 3: Choose a Bug Tracker¶
You can specify a bug tracker on another service. For example, if you’re using JIRA as your bug tracker, you can configure it so that any references to bug numbers will link to the appropriate ticket.
Step 4: Manage Access Control¶
You can now choose who should have access to this repository (both posting against it and viewing review requests posted against it). This is separate from Bitbucket Server’s own access controls.
Step 5: Save the Repository¶
At this point, you should be able to save the repository. If saving succeeds, you’re done! You can start posting changes for review.
