Adding Bitbucket Repositories

Get a PullRequest team member to help 🙋‍♀️

Want us to walk you through connecting PullRequest to your Bitbucket Workspace? We're here to help! Let's set up a 30 minute screen share call and we'll make sure everything is set up and ready to go.

Click to schedule a Bitbucket installation meeting

Step 1: Enable Development Mode in Bitbucket

The PullRequest installation requires development mode to be enabled for your Bitbucket Workspace.

This can be accessed from:

https://bitbucket.org/<YOUR_WORKSPACE_ID>/workspace/settings/addon-management

Or, open your Bitbucket Workspace and go to Settings -> Installed Apps.

Make sure the box for development mode is enabled.

  • Enable development mode

Step 2: Authorize and Connect

After signing up, you'll be prompted to authorize and connect with a version control hosting provider. Click the Sync with Bitbucket option.

You'll be prompted by Bitbucket to grant access to your Bitbucket user account.

Step 3: Install the PullRequest Bitbucket app

After authorizing with your Bitbucket user account, you'll be directed to page in connect with the Bitbucket add-on. Select the Bitbucket Workspace you'd like to connect PullRequest with and click the Grant Access button.

If you're unable to grant access because developer mode is not enabled, make sure the setting is enabled for your Workspace (see step 1).

NOTE: You maintain full control of revoking PullRequest access at any time.

Step 4: View Repositories

Repositories should now appear on the PullRequest dashboard page when the Bitbucket Workspace is selected from the Organizations drop-down menu at the top-left portion of the screen.

Step 5: Add PullRequest posting user to your team

In order for PullRequest reviewers to post feedback in your Bitbucket pull requests, a PullRequest posting user must be added to your Workspace.

Open your Bitbucket Workspace and go to Settings -> User groups.

This can be accessed from:

https://bitbucket.org/<YOUR_WORKSPACE_ID>/workspace/settings/groups

Then click the Add member button.

This will open a modal for adding team members.

In the Email field, add: bitbucket@pullrequest.com

In the Groups field, apply any Bitbucket Group(s) with access to the repositories you'd like PullRequest to review for.

Usually the default group is Developers, but this varies depending on how roles are assigned in your Bitbucket Workspace.

If the PullRequest team member isn't added immediately (in an "Invitation Sent" state), it should be added within a few hours. Reach our to support@pullrequest.com if you need this expedited or run into any issues.
