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.

Great Attlassian git server

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

It integrates seemlessly with other Attlasian products such as Jira and Confluence. It also has variety of built in CI/CD tools.

Cons

It has a different way of cloning repositories when comparing to other git servers (it generates git url per user)

A good alternative to Github

Reviewed 6 months ago
Pros

Bitbucket is excellent when integration with JIRA - it gives the team the ability to easily view status and get updates across systems. It also allows integration with the JIRA release and workflow tools

Cons

While Bitbucket is steadily being improved, it does lack a few features that it's main rival Github does. The Pull Release view is probably the main thing here - while it has many of the capabilities of Github, it just lacks some of the polish and ease of use features.

Started as a great product, but I got disappointed

Reviewed 4 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 repository management platform out there

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, our teams love BitBucket and we use it daily. We host our code up there and this allows us to review, manage, and share our code directly to all teams. It's easy to do things like set permissions or integrate other tools like Jira which make the platform even more robust than it already is. Although a bit pricey as you scale with your engineers, it's generally a cost-effective platform given your business size that is unmatched in repository management software and allows us to build products with a sense of peace and security.

Pros

I think the biggest pro with using Bitbucket is that it integrates extremely well with JIRA. This allows you to track your tickets with the branches you're working on and to easily see its progress during each sprint. It's intuitive and straightforward to use. It's also quick and almost rarely did we have any technical issues. Whenever we did have some issue, it was just with some expiring licenses which was easy to resolve. Permissions are additionally easy to manage. Overall, it's just an amazing tool that is 100% essential for our software team as it manages our repositories and allows to share, review, and manage our code across all teams.

Cons

The only downside I can think of is the scaling costs associated with it for the paid plans. Bitbucket charges per user. We have around 100 software engineers so it adds up a lot. Also, our engineers are quite experienced so working in Bitbucket hasn't been that much of a challenge. I've heard that engineers will lesser experience in repository management find Github to be easier to learn and implement but again, with greater experience comes a more expansive toolset.

Great for Git; Sunsetting Mercurial...

Reviewed 5 years ago

We were able to implement a necessary version control on our files which needed them most.

Pros

We use this service to maintain a mercurial repository of our in-development game files. Since we work remotely, this keeps everyone up-to-date with progress of the development and provides us with version control we desperately need.

Cons

Atlassian has recently announced they are dropping Mercurial repository support next year. This will force us to change our workflow and/or find another service to accommodate our current needs. Other than this issue, this service has been great, especially if you want it for a Git repository instead.
