Empowering BitBucket Version Control with Promotion and Distribution

We’re pleased to announce the integration of JFrog Artifactory and JFrog Bintray with Atlassian Bitbucket. This integration provides a unified dashboard that visualizes the entire release pipeline from commit, through CI, quality gates and release for distribution.

The JFrog Bitbucket add-on lets you monitor a build pipeline that is flowing through Bitbucket -> Bamboo -> Artifactory -> Bintray. This post is a quick walkthrough on how to use this addon.

Installing the JFrog add-on is a single step process:

Go to Source Code and click on “Install to Bitbucket” link. This add-on is also available on Atlassian Marketplace. For this use case a working configuration of Bamboo, Artifactory and Bintray is a prerequisite. For more information on how to configure please visit Wiki.

Your Bamboo plan should be configured to perform following:

  • Source checkout from Bitbucket repository.
  • Build Project (Maven, Gradle, Ivy, NPM etc)
  • Publish artifacts to Artifactory using Artifactory Bamboo Plugin
  • Promote build to different stages in Artifactory; e.g. Development to Test, Test to Release.
  • Push build to Bintray using Artifactory Rest API.
  • Set Attributes to build’s artifact in Bintray; e.g. buildName, buildNumber.



1. In Bitbucket Settings you will see JFrog Bitbucket Add-on tab containing the following options:

  • Associate Bamboo User
  • Associate Artifactory User
  • Associate Bintray User

Provide appropriate credential and URL to given fields.

2. Go to appropriate repository -> Repository -> Settings.

In Repository Settings you will see JFrog Bitbucket Add-on tab containing the following options:

  • Associate Bamboo Build
  • Associate Artifactory Build
  • Associate Bintray Package

3. Map your repository to the appropriate Bamboo plan, Artifactory build and Bintray package.

Click on link in the left-hand Bitbucket navigation menu (labelled JFrog in the screenshot above).

Support for Atlassian Cloud auth will be available shortly which should simplify this process further.

Technical details

The add-on is built on top of Atlassian Connect for Bitbucket framework. This system gives remotely hosted, third-party services access to the UI real-estate and internal events of Bitbucket, without having to become part of Bitbucket. It does this by leveraging modern web technologies such as webhooks, REST and cross-domain messaging.
