View end of support announcements for Bitbucket Cloud

We occasionally remove existing features and functions from Bitbucket Cloud in order to provide the best user experience possible. We don't make these changes lightly and know this might directly affect the workflows and functionality you use every day. We carefully consider usage, alignment with product direction, and operating overhead when deciding to end support for a feature.

We will make our best effort to provide advance notice to everyone using a feature before we end support for that feature. When possible we'll also offer alternatives or point to a new feature which replaces the function of the feature we are removing.

In addition to updates on this page, notifications may include email, in-app messaging, API responses, and/or blog posts on blog.bitbucket.org.

Atlassian account passwords for API and Git activity will be disabled 1 March 2022

March 01, 2022

Users signed up after 2021-09-13T00:00:00.000Z and trying to use non-interactive auth via bitbucket’s git / api operation using basic username/password based auth.

 

As previously announced in the Bitbucket blog, beginning 1 March 2022, Bitbucket users will not be able to use their Atlassian account passwords for API and Git activity.

Additionally, we've recently announced that new users with Atlassian accounts created on or after 13 September 2021 will not be able to use their account passwords for these Bitbucket activities.

For API and Git operations, an app password with the necessary scopes can be used in place of your account password. Please see Bitbucket Cloud documentation for a detailed explanation of what app passwords are and how to create and use them.
