Overall Satisfaction with Bitbucket

It's being used by several departments within the company and clients of the company.
It addresses hosting the codebase using the Git platform, where the developers can share and collaborate when developing the functionalities of their projects, and also allows developers to perform code reviews and provide visibility of their work with the JIRA board because of the Bitbucket-JIRA integration.
  • Intuitive
  • Reliable
  • Good integrations
  • Very useful diffing tools
  • Hard to track stale branches, which end up increasing the size of the repo
  • Could use better labeling options for filtering and searching of PRs
  • Could have an integrated wiki like GitHub
  • Ability for developers to be productive when working on a shared codebase, which means less friction for the development of business functionality
  • Ability for developers to review code, which means chances for less bugs and less waste in general
  • Ability for developers and project managers to see their progress directly in JIRA when using integration
Gitlab has better CI pipeline integrations
GitHub is more widely used in the open-source community and hence it has a much bigger user base
Bitbucket is appropriate for companies with small to medium-sized teams, specially if using JIRA integration
Well suited for small to medium sized teams which need to share code and review each others' PRs.
Great if team is using JIRA because of the integration with stories.
Less appropriate if teams need to work off different CI pipelines which dont have good integration with Bitbucket
