Xpack Security for Bitbucket Data Center


As per atlassian documentation, when elastic search is set up for code search in bitbucket data centre, it is recommended that xpack security be disabled.

However, we would like to know if there is any alternate solution for this? How are the other customers securing elastic search and making it work with bitbucket data centre i.e by not using the xpack security?

Hi! How are you doing?

Atlassian provides a free plugin called Buckler for this purpose.

You have got to pay attention that it requires Elastic 6.6.1 (we have tried to install it on 6.6.2 and it did not work).

Hope this helps!

Hi Cristiano!

Thanks for the reply! However the password in buckler.yml is not encrypted and becomes a security concern. I see there is a feature request to implement this -

One of the reasons why we would like to use xpack security.

Hi @Ramprasad Baliga ! How are you doing?

According to Bitbucket documentation, you could use other plugins, like Shield (according to Elastic documentation, Shield is now part of X-Pack).

Bitbucket Server also supports authentication to Elasticsearch through other plugins that provide basic authentication, like Elastic's Shield plugin.

Hope this helps!
