Deploying multiple Atlassian applications in a single Tomcat container is not supported. We do not test this configuration and upgrading any of the applications (even for point releases) is likely to break it.

Finally, we do not support deploying any other applications to the same Tomcat container that runs Bitbucket Server, especially if these other applications have large memory requirements or require additional libraries in Tomcat's lib subdirectory.
