Invalid URL for BitBucket Cloud Webhook to Bamboo

Mike Hagesfeld August 10, 2018

When trying to set up our BitBucket webhook to Bamboo, I am getting "Invalid URL" when trying to save the Webhook initial setup.  I am using the URL from the pattern posited in the Atlassian post:

I have tried:

Which results in "Invalid URL"

And when I try:

I get "The specified URL is invalid"

I have added the BitBucket IPs to the whitelist for the trigger in Bamboo.

Hello Mike,

I've checked the errors you were experiencing and this is what they usually mean:
Invalid URL: Domain unreachable. This error is misleading, it was reported as an enhancement but closed due to missing information - #12533 - Urls that don't exist give unclear "invalid url" error - Bitbucket. I've added some extra comments there to highlight this as an existing problem.
The specified URL is invalid: The URL format is not valid.

Your Bamboo instance seems to be unavailable to the internet, in order words, Bitbucket is not able to reach your Bamboo server therefore not being able to configure the WebHook.

Please check if your instance is available by accessing it from a different machine, on an external network.

curl --user <user>:<password> -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST http://<your_IP>:8085/rest/triggers/1.0/remote/changeDetection?planKey=BAMTEST-BAMWEB&skipBranches=false

(!) Please make sure the IP calling Bamboo is configured in Trigger IP addresses remote trigger.

In case you need to whitelist a firewall to allow Bitbucket request to reach your server, please use the following pages as a reference:

I hope that helps you to move forward.

Thank you - I was able to figure that out eventually, but could not find this information anywhere else (another answer to a different question triggered the "DUH!" moment that my local URL wouldn't be accessible via cloud bitbucket).  A more informative message might be helpful.

Thanks for your assistance!
