Bitbucket is widely used as the primary version control tool for managing source code across various organizations and departments. Developers rely on Bitbucket to check in their branches, create pull requests, and merge approved branches into the main branch. It integrates seamlessly with other tools from the Atlassian Jira suite, such as Jira, Bamboo, and Confluence, providing a reliable and easy-to-integrate source control solution. Users appreciate Bitbucket for its ability to store and track code for personal projects, as well as share them with friends and colleagues. It serves as a valuable version control system in web development departments, where each developer has their own account and is assigned to appropriate groups. Bitbucket also meets the needs of hosting Git repositories, offering stability and flexibility for different teams. Its responsive support, free private repositories, easy integration with CI tools, and smooth user interface are highly valued by users. Some users have experienced issues with the Windows client and found the website navigation unintuitive. However, overall, Bitbucket proves to be an indispensable tool for synchronizing work between developers and different teams, including external collaborators or organizations working on private projects. Additionally, small companies benefit from Bitbucket's offer of unlimited private repositories at no cost.

Stability: Users have found Bitbucket to be stable, with minimal unscheduled outages experienced over extended periods of usage. Several reviewers have mentioned that they have not encountered any major issues or disruptions while using the platform.

Code review feature: The code review feature of Bitbucket is considered good by many users. They appreciate the ability to comment on modified code and engage in discussions until a consensus is reached. This functionality has been praised for facilitating effective collaboration and ensuring high-quality code.

Integration with JIRA: Many users value Bitbucket's integration with JIRA, as it allows them to create a new branch directly from a JIRA issue. This feature helps keep code organized and easily accessible. Several reviewers have highlighted how this seamless workflow management enhances collaboration within teams.

Confusing and outdated user interface: Many users have expressed frustration with the confusing and outdated user interface of Bitbucket. They find it difficult to navigate, locate desired settings or features, and describe it as not intuitive or in need of updating.

Limited search engine functionality: The search engine in Bitbucket has been criticized for its limitations. Users have mentioned that it does not search within source code, requiring them to set up a third-party search engine. This lack of comprehensive searching capability hinders their ability to efficiently find specific code snippets or files.

Lack of integration options for third-party apps: Some users have expressed frustration with the limited integration options available for third-party apps in Bitbucket. They mention that this lack of flexibility makes it less convenient to use the tool alongside other tools they rely on for their development workflow.

Users commonly recommend Bitbucket for its strong version control capabilities and integrations with project management tools. They suggest considering Bitbucket, especially if you are already using other Atlassian products. Users also advise giving it a trial period of one month to determine if it meets your needs. Moreover, they mention that Bitbucket is straightforward to manage for basic code. However, some users caution that it may not be the optimal choice for handling multiple branches.

  • Earlier it was very helpful for us when we migrated to it from SVN to manage our source code at that time it saves a lot of time which was spent in managing users/groups projects and code merging.
  • Nowadays people aren't liking BitBucket anymore as it doesn't have rice features as are in other source control tools like GitHub and GitLab. Now It's not making any good impact on our business.

  • The overall return on investment is very high compared to other source code management tools.
  • Having a subscription model only is making BitBucket's cost of ownership very high over the years. There should be an alternative option for the purchase of a license permanently (like proprietary software).
  • Paying separately for premium support is not a good idea. Premium support should be part of the package itself.
  • No local or on-call support available in Singapore and many other countries is also painful. There should be some local presence, at least in their leading market countries like Singapore.

  • Bitbucket has improved the ability of our development teams to collaborate on projects.
  • Our code is now backed up securely in the cloud, with both current and previous versions, which provides an additional layer of safety for code that is critical to our business.

  • It was great at the beginning when we wanted a cheap option for a small team which yielded a positive ROI.
  • Over the years, other tools have evolved where Bitbucket has not done so as rapidly. It is now behind but we're locked in to it which has been negative ROI.
  • It's not as easy to use as the competitors which makes code management and PR review more difficult than they could be which would be a negative ROI by comparison.

  • Bitbucket is a central application used across the company by the bank developers. It has removed the need for multiple source code management repositories. It helped to build the uniform platform for source code management across the bank.
  • Bitbucket is very easy to administer and maintain for our large userbase. It is compatible with multiple proxies. It supports most of the leading databases like Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL etc.
  • Bitbucket checks in the compressed file version as the new version instead of delta of the file. It is impacting on the I/O operations. Because of this, it gets slow.
  • Bitbucket is not good enough to handle the merge with lots of commits through UI, and it gets timed out in most
  • cases and gives a generic error message.

  • At about $10 per month (I don't remember for how many users), its much better value than GitHub for private repos.
  • Thanks to its pipeline feature, we didn't have to invest time and money in 3rd party CI tools like Jenkins.
