Build Status Jenkins Plugin GitHub release Jenkins Plugin Installs


Bitbucket plugin is designed to offer integration between Bitbucket and Jenkins.

It exposes a single URI endpoint that you can add as a WebHook within each Bitbucket project you wish to integrate with. This single endpoint receives a full data payload from Bitbucket upon push (see their documentation), triggering compatible jobs to build based on changed repository/branch.

Since 1.1.5 Bitbucket automatically injects the payload received by Bitbucket into the build. You can catch the payload to process it accordingly through the environmental variable $BITBUCKET_PAYLOAD.

Bitbucket Cloud usage

Configure your Bitbucket repository with a Webhook, using URL JENKINS_URL/bitbucket-hook/ (no need for credentials but do remember the trailing slash).

The older-style HTTP POSTs from Bitbucket are also supported but deprecated.

On each push, the plugin:

  1. Scans Jenkins for all jobs with "Build when a change is pushed to Bitbucket" option enabled. For MultiBranch pipelines Scan Multibranch Pipeline Triggers should be configured in order to be able to process the WebHook.
  2. For each job matched:
    1. If the job's SCM (git) URL "loosely matches" that of the git repository listed inside the Bitbucket-provided payload, AND
    2. If the job's SCM (git) detects that the remote repository has changes, THEN
    3. A full build of the job will be queued

The "loose matching" is based on the host name and paths of the projects matching.

Bitbucket server usage

Since the version 1.1.7 of the Bitbucket plugin works against Bitbucket server. For this plugin to work against Bitbucket server you must: 

  1. Install Post Webhooks for Bitbucket at Bitbucket side [the plugin is free]
  2. At repository level, delete the webhook in case it exists

  1. Create a Post-WebHook, which is different from WebHook and enable on push.

After this, you are all set-up

Override Repository URL

In case the matching mechanism does not work, you can manually override the URL used for matching.
For example:
The URL would be tried to matched with This of course would fail.
To overcome this, setting the "Override Repository URL" field to would match the URL and will trigger the JOB when a commit is pushed to my_repo.git.git


The current supported dsl is as follows:

freeStyleJob('test-job') {
