Bitbucket integration#

The Bitbucket integration incorporates Codacy on your existing Git provider workflows by reporting issues and the analysis status directly on your pull requests.

When the integration is enabled, you can also create pull request comments and Jira issues directly from Codacy when browsing the existing issues on the repository:

Enabling the Bitbucket integration#

To enable the Bitbucket integration, open your repository Settings, tab Integrations. When you add a new repository, Codacy enables the integration using the default settings for your organization.

Bitbucket integration

If you remove the integration, you can enable it again as follows:

  1. Click the button Add integration and select Bitbucket on the list.
  2. Click the button Enable and follow the instructions.


    The user that enables the integration must have administrator access to the repository. Codacy uses this Bitbucket user to create comments on pull requests.


    Use a dedicated service account to integrate Codacy with your repositories. This prevents disruption of service if the user who originally enabled the integration loses access to the repositories, which may happen when a user leaves the team or the organization.

    For more information and instructions on how to set up a dedicated service account see Why did Codacy stop commenting on pull requests?

Configuring the Bitbucket integration#

To configure the Bitbucket integration, open your repository Settings, tab Integrations.

Depending on the options that you enable, Codacy will automatically update pull requests on Bitbucket with extra information when accepting pull requests.


You can apply the default Git provider integration settings to all repositories to ensure that your repositories all share the same settings.

Pull Request Status#

Adds a report to your pull requests showing whether your pull requests and coverage are up to standards or not as configured on the quality gate rules for your repository. You can then optionally block merging pull requests that aren't up to standards.


To get a status for coverage you must also:
