Overall Satisfaction with Bitbucket

We used Bitbucket for a while as a source control management. It integrates really well with JIRA and is fairly decent at doing what it needs to do. It was used across the entire development team as a source code repository and code review platform. It enabled us to comment on pull requests and code
  • Integrates with JIRA.
  • Private repositories.
  • Not as rounded or as complete as GitHub or Gitlab.
  • Seems very entangled in the Atlassian ecosystem.
  • Source code management is necessary.
  • Code review comments are amazing.
We did select Bitbucket for a bit, but then we eventually moved away from using JIRA to different tools and as a result, it made more sense to move our source code to GitHub since it provides more features and is just much easier to use as everyone already knows how to use GitHub.
Atlassian support is top tier and they are clearly a company built by programmers for programmers.

Do you think Bitbucket delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Bitbucket again?


If you're already using the Atlassian suite of products it's a great idea to use Bitbucket for your source code management and code reviews. Integrating with JIRA and other Atlassian products is a great feature and provides a lot of utility and insights into code and how things are getting done. But if you're not already bought into that Atlassian/JIRA world, it probably makes more sense to use something like GitHub or Gitlab instead.
