Product Quick Facts
Individual software developers and DevOps teams alike use Bitbucket. The software offers standard features such as pull requests for code reviews, branch permissions for managing who can edit source code, and diff views for comparing code versions side-by-side. Users can also access features such as project organization, social coding features, semantic searching, and third-party integrations.
Atlassian offers Bitbucket in a free tier and in two different paid tiers. Small teams of up to five users can use the software for free with unlimited private repositories but limited additional features. Paid tiers allow for unlimited users and additional features that are better-suited for growing to large-sized teams. The paid tiers also offer better security features, such as two-factor authentication (2FA). Teams can host their code on the Bitbucket Cloud or on their company’s own servers via Bitbucket Server and Data Center.
Since Bitbucket is part of the Atlassian family of software solutions, it integrates natively with other Atlassian products such as Jira, for project management and issue tracking, and Trello, for workflow process management. Bitbucket also offers an API, so developers can integrate third-party software with Bitbucket Cloud.
