Configure automatic team invitations

You can add users to a Bitbucket Cloud group through either Bitbucket or through JIRA Software. These groups are defined on a Bitbucket account (team or individual). When you add users, they receive an email invitation to join Bitbucket and the account group. To join a group, members must have their own individual Bitbucket accounts. So, each invitation contains a link that takes a user to Bitbucket. Once there, users finish joining by creating an individual account or by supplying an existing account.

When you add users through Bitbucket, you can supply a user's Bitbucket account name or their email. If you are using JIRA Software Cloud or JIRA Software Server, you have options for adding JIRA Software users manually or automatically. Automatic user sign up can happen through a Google integration (Cloud) or by public signup (JIRA Software Server). These JIRA Software users receive invitations only from the Bitbucket accounts you've configured to send them. You configure this behavior through the JIRA DVCS connector.

This page explains how to customize the JIRA Software invitation behavior.

Decide on a configuration strategy for adding users to account groups

Before you configure your JIRA DVCS connector, decide which strategy for adding users to Bitbucket Cloud works best for your situation.

Which description best matches your situation? The configuration we recommend you should use.
All of my JIRA Software users should belong to one or all of my Bitbucket Cloud/group team combinations. Configure the JIRA DVCS Connector to automatically invite new JIRA Software users to a Bitbucket Cloud account's group when they become JIRA Software users.
I add my users manually to my JIRA Software instance. Configure the JIRA DVCS Connector to automatically invite new JIRA Software users to a Bitbucket account's group. Optionally, change the Bitbucket team/groups for the user when you add them to JIRA Software.
I've enabled automatic sign up on JIRA Software but only a small set of JIRA Software users should belong to my Bitbucket team. Configure the JIRA DVCS Connector to prevent it from inviting users automatically. Manually add users to groups through Bitbucket.
I've enabled automatic sign up on JIRA Software but some JIRA Software users should belong to one Bitbucket team/group combination and others users belong to another.

Choose which groups to invite users to

  1. Log into JIRA as a user with administrative rights.
  2. Go to ApplicationsDVCS accounts in the JIRA admin area.
  3. Locate the account to configure.
  4. Choose Configure automatic access from the Actions menu:



  5. Select the groups you want new JIRA users assigned to.
    New JIRA Software users will automatically be added to the groups you select, and will be invited to join Bitbucket. When the user joins, they have the group access to your project. Keep in mind that, depending on your situation, you may not want any groups selected.
  6. Press Save.
  7. Repeat this procedure for each account.
