Overall Satisfaction with Bitbucket

Our IT team uses Bitbucket for all our Git repositories. A few years ago, we were on a self-hosted Visual Source Safe system and it was not sustainable for us. Since we were moving to Jira, Bitbucket became a very attractive addition. We migrated all of our repositories out of VSS and into Bitbucket and since then have enjoyed using it for code review, pull requests, version control, integration with Jira and automation orchestration. Jira and Bitbucket integration has been a joy to use.
  • Great integration with Jira
  • Easy to use
  • Cost
  • Can be slow sometimes
  • Stability
  • Version Control
  • Code Review
  • Pull Requests
  • CI/CD
  • All code was centralized in Bitbucket
  • Code Review frequency increased
  • Branching become a common practice
For the features we were looking at, Bitbucket, GitHub and GitLab were all at par and were in a similar price range. We found that GitHub was the most full featured should we need to scale very quickly. GitLab was at par with GitHub for our future needs, but GitHub was a more familiar tool compared to GitLab. Bitbucket won out because of its close integration with Jira and being in the Atlassian family. It was also cheaper than GitHub. As we started with Jira, Bitbucket addition became a natural next step for us. We really liked Bitbucket and stayed with it but we do know we have great options in the form of GitHub and GitLab should we need to scale fast.

Bitbucket works really well with Jira and Atlassian ecosystem. If you are in the Atlassian ecosystem, definitely consider Bitbucket as your version control repository. Bitbucket shines in code review process and also in pull requests. It is easy for users to get used to. If you are doing CI/CD and pipeline, you'll like Bitbucket also.
