Bitbucket Data Center and Server 7.12 release notes

13 April 2021

Introducing Bitbucket Data Center and Server 7.12.

Highlights include:

Configure multiple IdPs


We're happy to announce that from now on you can configure multiple identity providers (IdPs) in SAML and OpenID Connect configuration. This feature is available for the following Atlassian Data Center products:

  • Jira 8.16 or later and Jira Service Management 4.16 or later
  • Bitbucket 7.12 or later

For more information, see the Using multiple identity providers documentation.

Disable basic authentication


While working on adding multiple identity providers, we've also included a way to disable basic authentication on the login page and in API calls. Since basic authentication is less secure than single sign-on, we advise that you switch to SSO, and disable basic authentication completely. Learn more about disabling basic authentication.

What else is new?

  • In the pull request diff, you can now expand the context button from either the upward or downward direction. To reduce loading time, you'll also have control over all lines expanding by limiting them to 25 at a time.
  • When commenting on a pull request, you can now take advantage of the new formatting toolbar we've added to the editor. Use bold, italic, inline code, and strikethrough with the click of a button or a keyboard shortcut.

Updates to supported platforms

Bitbucket 7.12 now includes support for running Git 2.31 for Server.
