Bitbucket Data Center and Server feature comparison

If you manage your own Bitbucket site (it's not hosted by Atlassian), you'll have either a Bitbucket Server or Bitbucket Data Center license. 

Your Bitbucket license determines which features and infrastructure choices are available. 

We want all teams to get the most out of Bitbucket, so all the core features are available for everyone - including projects, repositories, pull requests and workflows. 

Feature comparison

Here's a summary of what you get with each license.
