End of support announcements for Bitbucket Cloud

We occasionally remove existing features and functions from Bitbucket Cloud in order to provide the best user experience possible. We don't make these changes lightly and know this might directly affect the workflows and functionality you use every day. We carefully consider usage, alignment with product direction, and operating overhead when deciding to end support for a feature.

We will make our best effort to provide advance notice to everyone using a feature before we end support for that feature. When possible we'll also offer alternatives or point to a new feature which replaces the function of the feature we are removing.

In addition to updates on this page, notifications may include email, in-app messaging, API responses, and/or blog posts on blog.bitbucket.org.

The following table summarizes the end of support announcements for future Bitbucket Cloud releases. If support has already ended for a feature, it is not listed in the table.
