Will Bamboo server 5.7.2 work with BitBucket 5.12.0?

Sam Criswell January 22, 2019

We are using Bamboo server 5.7.2 with Stash 3.6.1. We are in the process of up grading both. Can Bamboo 5.7.2 work with Bitbucket 5.12.0 until we upgrade Bamboo to version 6.6.2?

Bamboo 5.7.2 uses application links version 4.1 and Bitbucket 5.12 uses 5.4.4.
Aplication links version 4.1 are not compatible with 5.x ones. For this reason some funcionalites relying on application links may not work properly. Some of the features are:

  • Triggering build events
  • New Bitbucket repository configuration in Bamboo
  • Bitbucket build notifications

Bamboo should be fine to run builds and checkout code since this communication will don't use application links but http(s) and SSH directly to the git layer.

What I suggest:

  1. Try to find an alternative where you can upgrade Bamboo and Bitbucket at same time or as close as possible. It will be easier, no tricks.
  2. If you cannot upgrade them at same time:
    1. Run a test to validate if the triggering feature will work. Although this combination is not supported, it might be possible that it works for the main features therefore not blocking you.
    2. If you face trigger issues and still need to move on with this plan, you can overcome this by removing the Bitbucket repository trigger and adding a polling trigger instead. That will assure that Bamboo will be the one pinging Bitbucket for changes. Please notice that this may overload your Bamboo server with change detection tasks that may affect the performance of your instance.
