Best Practices for Bitbucket Cloud Service Accounts?

Hello, we are moving from Bitbucket Server to Bitbucket Cloud.

Traditionally, we would use Active Directory service accounts to run certain automated actions with Bitbucket Server. 

However, I am having trouble understanding how that would work with Bitbucket Cloud. We want to use service accounts to handle things like Jenkins integration and also Teamcity Onprem builds.

Additionally, we are using Atlassian Access hooked up to our Azure AD instance to provide both directory sync and SSO.

Any guidance on how to create, manage, and use service accounts in Bitbucket Cloud is appreciated.

Hi @Patrick Chen,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Instead of using service accounts you can use App passwords. You would still need to create a service account if you want to separate the app password from users, but the benefit of app passwords is that you do not have to specify the password in a script.
