Overall Satisfaction with Bitbucket

Bitbucket is a git repository management solution designed for professional teams. It gives us a central place to manage git repositories, collaborate on our source code and guide us through the development flow. It facilitate us to work with sourcetree git client applications which provide a graphical user interface to interact with our git repositories. It helps us collaborate better on code and integrates well with other Atlassian tools like Jira and Bamboo, which makes it easier to implement DevOps processes and keep track of the development workflow. Therefore working with Bitbucket is so easy. Beginners can start working on Bitbucket without knowing git commands. And also it provides strong access control. We can ensure the safety of our project in Bitbucket. I am using Bitbucket for managing my own projects. Before that I tried several version control systems to do that but only Bitbucket provides me with a flexible way to manage my projects. Also we have no need to worry about the commands which are being used in git. By using the sourcetree git client we can do all the version controlling task very easily. I recommend that all of you use Bitbucket for doing your version control tasks.
  • Easy to track who has been making changes to the repository.
  • Each developer can have his/her local repository and keep changes in sync with the server.
  • Excellent auditing tools
  • Simple interface and file management through built-in SourceTree integration.
  • It provides limited space for community edition.
  • No ability to nest repositories.
  • Server version does not allow a README to be generated automatically when a repository is created (only available in the Cloud version).
  • No ability to archive a repository (and moving to a different project changes the hyperlink path).
  • Cost reduction on maintaining project sources.
  • Save time.
  • Improve quality of products.
Bitbucket provides more features to version control and mange project sources. Build, test and deploy with integrated CI/CD. Benefit from configuration as code and fast feedback loops. Approve code review more efficiently with pull requests. Create a merge checklist with designated approvers and hold discussions right in the source code with inline comments.Know our code is secure in the Cloud with IP whitelisting and required 2-step verification. Restrict access to certain users, and control their actions with branch permissions and merge checks for quality code.
For large enterprises, Bitbucket and the rest of the Atlassian suite are kind of a given. It gives you the most options and customizations, and tons of data points. For medium to small organizations, it's probably overkill, and you'd be better served by an app or suite of apps that required less setup and maintenance, and less complexity to deal with.
