Configure Bitbucket Posting User

Code reviews for your Bitbucket Server repositories will be posted as a "PullRequest" member of your Bitbucket team. In order to post code reviews, the user must be created in your Bitbucket.

Prerequisites

The Bitbucket posting user must be created by an individual on your team with the following administrative permissions:

  • A PullRequest account with an Owner role for the organization in question.

  • An Admin role on your Bitbucket Server instance.

Creating the Bitbucket User

Log into the PullRequest Proxy and click the Configure Bitbucket button on the home page.

Paste the root URL of your Bitbucket Server instance (this will be whatever domain your team usually uses to access Bitbucket). Example:

https://our-bitbucket.internal

Log in to your Bitbucket instance as an admin and create a new user with the username PullRequest. This will be the user that posts comments in your repositories.

Add the PullRequest user to all of the repositories you want code review on. Be sure to grant the user WRITE permission so it's able to post comments.

PullRequest will never write or modify code in your repositories. Read more about how we keep your data secure here.

Apply Bitbucket Access Token

Log in to Bitbucket as the PullRequest user.

This may be easier in another browser or an incognito tab so you can remain logged in as the Bitbucket admin user.

Create a personal access token for the PullRequest user in Bitbucket by opening https://our-bitbucket.internal/plugins/servlet/access-tokens/manage in the browser you were logged into as the PullRequest user.

The access token will need to have Projects READ and Repositories WRITE permissions.

Creating a personal access token in Bitbucket

Once generated, copy the personal access token to your clipboard and go back to the PullRequest Proxy UI with the Bitbucket Settings modal open.

Enter PullRequest as the PullRequest Username (or whatever name was used in Bitbucket).

Paste the personal access token into the modal and click Update.

Verify connection

Open the Repositories tab in the left sidebar. The repositories the PullRequest Bitbucket user were added to should appear in a list here.
