Pros
Clean interface, good notifications, good user/team management. It plays very well with other Atlassian software, specially Jira in our case.
It has been a pretty good experience I will recommend it as an optional product if you are done with other version controls.
The best features about bitbucket is the integration it has with all of Atlassian's other software such as Jira or Confluence which the integration is flawless.
Cons
However, in some situations it is a little difficult to correct. I already had problems that the tool claimed problems in login while all the information was correct.
It has some features missing which Github offers and is a little more expensive. It is not as complete as Github.
Searching in the files and code is very tedious. Navigating to pipelines and releases are confusing.

A good free alternative to github

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've been using it now for 6 years and it's my main repo host for work. I can recall only two times where there was a downtime that affected me, but besides that, there's never been a problem with them.

Pros

I like how robust their website is on terms of pull requests and integrations with JIRA and other atlassian products. You can store private repo's and manage it. The pull Request feature is the strongest in my opinion, with reviews and linking to JIRA. So it automatically can close tickets once you merge/accept a pull request. If you link the commits with a JIRA issue it also updates with them. They recently simplified the UI and their own home made SourceTree Visual App has received some substantial upgrades over the years and it's one of the best tree-based git history apps out there. In all honesty, it's a simple git control hosting website you can use online or host by yourself. It's really good.

Cons

The UI used to change a lot but now they've settled. Sometimes, compared to github, processing big pull requests (loading the changes/previewing) can be a little slow. Sometimes the integrations with JIRA, can feel like a miss if you don't use it, because Github has a lot of those features that Github might miss.

An easy and fast way to keep track of your elements and their modifications.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Bitbucket is a very useful version control tool, easy to master and with many useful tools that will help you speed up your work, of course it has certain shortcomings that could be improved over time, but at the end of the day it is a tool very useful. From the most basic to the most complex options, you will find them extremely useful in your day to day work to get ahead.

Pros

Bitbucket has a very friendly interface that is easy to understand and understand, it allows you to maintain control and order of all your elements and keep track of each modification that was made and by whom said modification was made. It allows you to establish different types of permissions as necessary to have a better control of who can perform what actions within the repositories that are created in bitbucket. Once you get familiar with the tool, everything is easy to do and locate any option you are looking for to carry out your tasks.

Cons

Sometimes the way it provides you to search within each repository can be somewhat cumbersome, requiring you to write the exact name of the component you may be looking for in order to show you a result, making the searches more strenuous since you must know the exact name of the component or it will be very difficult to find it. In some cases, when versioning certain changes, Bitbucket interprets them as a total change within the component and shows as if the file was being completely modified even if you are only modifying some lines of code.

A Robust Platform for Code Collaboration and Management

Reviewed 2 months ago

Bitbucket is a widely used version control platform that provides a comprehensive set of features for managing code changes, including support for both Git and Mercurial version control systems, a user-friendly graphical interface, integration with popular CI/CD tools, code review and pull request features, and deployment management capabilities. Many teams find Bitbucket to be a useful tool for collaborating on code changes and managing their codebase.

Pros

Bitbucket include its support for both Git and Mercurial version control systems, its user-friendly graphical interface, its integration with popular CI/CD tools, its code review and pull request features, and its deployment management capabilities.

Cons

On Bitbucket, limitations on the free plan, limited scalability for large enterprises, and limited support for some of the latest technologies and tools. Additionally, some users may prefer other version control platforms over Bitbucket based on their specific needs and requirements.

Started as a great product, but I got disappointed

Reviewed 3 years ago

Brilliant from 7 years go until approx 3 years ago. Painful to use for the last 3 years and we are currently migrating everything to GitHub.

Pros

We started implementing version control using Mercurial about 7 years ago (in my own company). On the advice of a colleague at the time we used Mercurial as opposed to Git. Bitbucket worked perfectly with Mercurial when we needed it at the time and really helped our business. It was fast easy to use and understand and the online UI kept getting better and better.

Cons

In the last 3 years, pushing and pulling and doing any kind of actions became tediously slow. I copied some of the repos to GitHub and converted to Git to check it was not a problem with my repo, with my computer, or with the software I was using (SourceTree). In all cases the only difference was using a Mercurial versus Git repo on BitBucket. I got no response to my support query, and no response...

Best in Class Jira Integration - Use once and you'll forget everything else.

Reviewed 4 months ago

We use bitbucket and other atlassian products in our office for managing code and other projects for our team. We must say that its integration with JIRA and its continuous development and deployment are the best things our corporate people likes the most. Thanks

Pros

In-expensive, Pro-output, World Class Integration, CI/CD, Cloud Security.

Cons

The dashboard could be improved a little more where basically all project pull request are retained by adding some more filters.
