Code Insights for Bitbucket Server
You might have read about it in our early access program announcement, or maybe you heard about it at Atlassian Summit this year: Code Insights has landed and is available now in Bitbucket Server 5.15.
CI systems and other code analysis tools produce useful information about a codebase as it evolves, but how can developers take advantage of this information? How can teams benefit from this information without burdening developers with endless context switching and commit revisions?
Code Insights, that's how. You can now present important development information directly on pull requests inside the product, in order to proactively diagnose potential issues, shorten test cycles, and improve code quality.
Eager and ready to get started with Code Insights?
To get started looking for existing third-party apps, check out the Atlassian Marketplace.
If you're looking to build your own integration, we have some tutorials and information available to get you started:
- To add Code Insights as part of your CI pipeline, here is a very helpful resource.
- If you're wanting a more comprehensive overview of the feature and how it works, try the how to add code insights to pull requests tutorial.

Deprecations in 6.0 are looming closer and closer... in January 2018
Just a quick reminder to all our admins, that there are some deprecations coming up for our Bitbucket Server and Data Center customers with the release of Bitbucket Server 6.0 in January of 2019. Be sure to plan ahead if you're upgrading!
Deprecation of Elasticsearch 2.3 for Data Center customers
Elasticsearch 2.3 will be deprecated for data center customers only, in 6.0.
Support was ended for server customers in Bitbucket Server 5.7, with additional lead time factored in for our data center customers to plan accordingly.
Have a look at the original update in the Bitbucket Server 5.7 release notes.
Deprecation of Git 2.10
In Bitbucket Server 6.0, we will end support for all versions before Git 2.11:
- Versions before Bitbucket Server 6.0 support Git 2.2.0 and higher, excluding Git 2.12.2 on Windows (see supported platforms for details).
- After 6.0 we will require Git 2.11.0 or newer, excluding Git 2.12.2 on Windows.
This section will contain information about the Bitbucket Server 5.14.x minor releases as they become available. These releases will be free to all customers with active Bitbucket Server software maintenance.
