Overall Satisfaction with Bitbucket

We used Bitbucket for hosting several private code repositories for our business. I’ve also used it a bit for personal projects. It is very easy to get started and is a great solution for hosting private repositories. Atlassian has many products under its umbrella and integrating Bitbucket with other services is made really easy.


  • Hosting private repos.
  • Managing team collaborators.
  • Integrating with other Atlassian products.


  • The markdown used for issues was lacking compared to GitHub.
  • Pricing for a small team was a bit more than competitors.
  • The interface is a bit too “business” class and not very intuitive.
  • Hosting private repos was free.
  • Managing team members was fairly low cost.
  • Integrating with other platforms and third-parties was pretty straightforward.
Bitbucket was my repo host of choice when it came to private repos, but now that GitHub offers free private repos I’ll probably just use them. If you want to manage branch protection though you’ll need a Pro membership for GitHub whereas it was free with Bitbucket.
I never had to contact them.

Do you think Bitbucket delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Bitbucket's feature set?


Did Bitbucket live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Bitbucket go as expected?


Would you buy Bitbucket again?


Hosting private repositories was the core business use of Bitbucket for us. I also used it for hosting private demo repos for third-party clients which was easy as well.

Unfortunately, I did not find the usability of the platform as intuitive as GitHub, particularly when it came to showing markdown in issues, something about the formatted just didn’t click.
