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.

On 01 Jun 2020, Bitbucket removed the AWS CodeDeploy app in favor of its AWS CodeDeploy pipe. That means the AWS CodeDeploy app will no longer be listed in the marketplace, and new installations will be disabled. On 01 Jun 2020 any existing installations of the AWS CodeDeploy app will be removed. Read more about this change.
Repository, pull request, and issue following will continue to work the same way. We recommend following the repositories you care about to stay on top of relevant activity. The full list of the accounts you follow and are followed by is still available via the API.
