This is the documentation for Bamboo 5.5. View this page for the

Unknown macro: {spacejump}

of Bamboo, or visit the latest Bamboo documentation.

This page describes how to configure Bamboo to use a Bitbucket source repository for either a plan or a job.

Before you start:

  • You will not be able to create plans or jobs that use a Bitbucket repository without specifying the shared local Mercurial or Git capability first. Read more about configuring a Version Control capability.

Configuring a Bitbucket source repository

To add a new Bitbucket repository, navigate to the source repository settings for a plan or job, as described on Specifying the source repository.

  1. Either click Add Repository to add a new repository, or edit an existing repository configuration.
  2. Choose Bitbucket from the Source Repository list.
  3. Enter a Display Name to help identify the repository in Bamboo.
  4. Add your Bitbucket Username and Password.
  5. You can configure the following settings for a BitBucket source repository for your plan:
Repository Retrieves all repositories you have explicit permissions to access from Bitbucket when you click Load Repositories.
BranchPick a branch if you want to check out code from a branch other than the default branch.

Advanced Options

Command timeout This is useful to stop hung Bitbucket processes. On slower networks, you may consider increasing the default timeout to allow Bamboo time to make an initial clone of the Mercurial repository.
Verbose logs

For Mercurial: Turns on --verbose and --debug options in Hg or Git commands and passes the output to build logs. Use this option if you encounter problems with Git or Mercurial in Bamboo.

Enable Quiet PeriodSpecifies a delay after a single commit is detected before the build is started. This allows multiple commits to be aggregated into a single build.
Include/Exclude Files

Allows you to specify the files that Bamboo should, or should not, use to detect changes.

Enter into File Pattern a regular expression to match the files that Bamboo  includes or excludes. The regex pattern must match the file path in the repository. See sub page for examples.

Exclude Changesets

Enter a regular expression to match the commit messages for changesets that should not start a build.
Web Repository

If your repository can be viewed in a web browser, select the repository type.

This allows links to relevant files to be displayed in the 'Code Changes' section of a build result.

Note: This option is not available for Git Repositories. See BAM-13376 - Getting issue details... STATUS for more information.

Mercurial Web Repository – select one of the following viewer schemes:

    • BitBucket Web Repository Scheme (if you use BitBucket)
    • Default Web Repository Scheme (hgserve) (Mercurial's own default web server)
