Bitbucket Server

GitKraken allows you to authenticate with Bitbucket Server, which will help you find repos on Bitbucket Server when cloning or adding your remotes.

Benefits

  • Create repositories on Bitbucket Server including .gitignore and license
  • Easily generate an SSH key pair and copy to clipboard to add to Bitbucket Server
  • Save authentication into profiles
  • Clone from Bitbucket Server repo list
  • Add remotes for Bitbucket Server repos
  • Create and view Pull Requests

Connecting to Bitbucket Server

To authenticate with Bitbucket Server, navigate to the upper right corner to access Preferences Authentication.

From the Authentication window, select Bitbucket Server. Enter your host domain URL and then click the Generate a token on Bitbucket Server button. Note the permissions that need to be assigned to the token on your GitLab Self-Hosted server.

This opens a web browser where you will log in with your Bitbucket Server credentials and create an access token.

Copy the token and paste it into GitKraken, then click the button.


Generating SSH keys for Bitbucket Server.

GitKraken will use your local SSH Config from SSH Defaults to fetch and push to Bitbucket Server, unless you set up a Bitbucket Server specific SSH key, or enable your local SSH Agent.

Once your Bitbucket Server account has been connected to GitKraken, you may then generate an SSH key and add it to your Bitbucket Server account from Preferences Authentication

Click and follow the toast prompt to add the key to your Bitbucket Server account. If you miss the toast pop-up or need to copy the public key later, you can use the link as well.

In your Bitbucket Server SSH keys page, click .

Paste your key and click .


OAuth integration with Bitbucket Server

GitKraken's integration with Bitbucket Server provides handy information about your repositories.

First, you may search through your existing repositories when cloning:

Next, GitKraken presents a list of forks of the current repository when adding remotes:

Of course, you still have the option of manually entering repo URLs.

Note: GitKraken connects to one Bitbucket Server at a time. However, with GitKraken Pro‘s multiple profile support, you can easily switch between profiles that each have their own associated Bitbucket accounts.
