Introducing Bitbucket Data Center and Server 8.7.
In this release we've added stricter controls on SSH keys with global settings.
Stricter controls on SSH keys with global settings
SERVER DATA CENTER
To help you meet your compliance needs and increase your organization’s security, we’ve added new controls on SSH keys. You can now restrict specific SSH key types and mandate minimum key lengths. We’ve added the ability to set a global expiry for SSH keys and we’ve also added the ability to edit the permissions associated with an SSH key. Learn more about how to manage settings for SSH keys
Before you upgrade to 8.7
SERVER DATA CENTER
H2 database migration requirement
To achieve improved processing speeds, we’ve upgraded the H2 database to version 1.4.200 as it supports multithreading. Version 1.4.200 of H2 doesn’t support the PageStore format – if you’re upgrading from a version lower than 8.0 and using a H2 database for a Bitbucket Mirror or Server and, you’ll need to migrate the on-disk database file to the MvStore format. Learn more about how to migrate your H2 database to the MvStore format
Updates to supported platforms
Bitbucket 8.7 now includes support for running:
- Git 2.38
