Bitbucket Integration

You can integrate a project in YouTrack with a Bitbucket repository. A Bitbucket integration enables the following features in YouTrack:


  • Your YouTrack server must be accessible from the Internet.
  • A committer's email address in YouTrack must be the same as in Bitbucket. YouTrack searches for a user account based on the email address that is registered in Bitbucket. These users must also have permission to update issues in the connected YouTrack project. If no match is found or the user does not have the required permission, the commands are not applied.
  • You are able to access the Bitbucket server with an email address and password. The YouTrack integration with Bitbucket does not support two-step verification.

When you enable and configure the Bitbucket integration, you define mappings between a YouTrack project and a Bitbucket repository.
