Bitbucket Cloudยป

Spacelift supports using Bitbucket Cloud as the source of code for your stacks and modules. You can set up multiple Space-level and one default Bitbucket Cloud integration per account.

Setting up the integrationยป

In order to set up the integration from the Spacelift side, please navigate to the Source code page, click on the Set up integration button in the top right corner and choose Bitbucket Cloud.

This form will appear:

VCS form

Explanation of the fields:

  • Integration name - the friendly name of the integration. The name cannot be changed after the integration is created. That is because the Spacelift webhook endpoints are generated based on the integration name.
  • Integration type - either default or Space-specific. The default integration is available to all stacks and modules. There can be only one default integration per VCS provider. Space-level integrations however are only available to those stacks and modules that are in the same Space as the integration (or inherit permissions through a parent Space). For example if your integration is in ParentSpace and your stack is in ChildSpace with inheritance enabled, you'll be able to attach the integration to that stack. Refer to the Spaces documentation to learn more about Space access controls and inheritance.
  • Username - a username of your Bitbucket account.
  • App password - app passwords are user-based access tokens for scripting tasks and integrating tools. You can find a little how-to below: Creating an App Password.
  • Labels - a set of labels to help you organize integrations.
  • Description - a markdown-formatted free-form text field that can be used to describe the integration.

Choosing the right Integration typeยป

Space-level integrations will be listed to users with read access to the integration Space. Integration details however contain sensitive information so they are only visible to those with admin access. On the other hand, default integrations are visible to all users of the account, but only root Space admins can see the details of them. Visit the Spaces documentation to learn more about access controls.

Creating an App Passwordยป

In order to get the App password you'll need to go to the Bitbucket Cloud site and navigate to Personal settings -> App passwords (it's under Access management) -> Create app password. There, you will need to give your new app password a label and give it read access to repositories and pull requests:

App password creation

This will give you an app password token which you can put into the App Password field in the integration configuration.

Created new app password

Finishing the setupยป

After doing all this you should have all fields filled in.

Filled in Bitbucket Cloud integration form

Once you've finished saving the form, you can find your webhook endpoint after clicking the 3 dots next to the integration name on the Source code page, and then clicking See details.

Integration details

For each repository you want to use with Spacelift, you now have to go into its Repository settings -> Webhooks -> Add webhook, and configure the webhook accordingly, by activating the following events:

  • Repository > Push
  • Pull Request > Created
  • Pull Request > Updated
  • Pull Request > Approved
  • Pull Request > Approval removed
  • Pull Request > Merged
  • Pull Request > Comment created

It should look something like the following:

Webhooks configuration

The last step is to install the Pull Request Commit Links app to be able to use this API. This is done automatically when you go to the commit's details and then click "Pull requests" link.

Commit's details

When creating a Stack, you will now be able to choose the Bitbucket Cloud provider and a repository inside of it:

Deleting the Integrationยป

If you no longer need the integration, you can delete it by clicking the 3 dots next to the integration name on the Source code page, and then clicking Delete. You need admin access to the integration Space to be able to delete it.


Please note that you can delete source code integrations while stacks are still using them. See the next section for more details.


When a stack has a detached integration, it will no longer be able to receive webhooks from Bitbucket and you won't be able to trigger runs manually either.

You'll need to open the stack, go to the Settings tab and choose a new integration.


You can save a little time if you create the new integration with the exact same name as the old one. This way, the webhook URL will remain the same and you won't have to update it in Bitbucket.
