Create an App password

App passwords are access tokens with reduced user access (specified at the time of creation). These passwords can be useful for scripting, CI/CD tools, and testing Bitbucket connected applications while they are in development.

To create an App password:

  1. Select the Settings cog in the upper-right corner of the top navigation bar.

  2. Under Personal settings, select Personal Bitbucket settings.

  3. On the left sidebar, select App passwords.

  4. Select Create app password.

  5. Give the App password a name, usually related to the application that will use the password.

  6. Select the permissions the App password needs. For detailed descriptions of each permission, see: App password permissions.

  7. Select the Create button. The page will display the New app password dialog.

  8. Copy the generated password and either record or paste it into the application you want to give access. The password is only displayed once and can't be retrieved later.
