Bitbucket Server listen localhost only


How can i change bitbucket server to listen localhost only: Instead of:

netstat :::7990 :::5701 :::7999,  this:

All threads I found on this topic appear to be outdated.  This was the best match for both searching google and the Atlassian community for "Bitbucket listen localhost only".  Being new here, I wasn't sure if this should be opened as a new thread in lieu of necroing this one. 

Having a local firewall to block access to unecessary interfaces is not an option.

There does not appear to be a server.xml file located on the most current release of Bitbucket, and the file contains the following at the top of the file:

#> Migrated to database at jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/GIT?targetServerType=master

I assume this has been moved to a Bitbucket setting from within the interface, but it is eluding me.

The following is from the page

Bitbucket/Administration/Server Settings/Base URL is set to

Here are my listening ports for Bitbucket:

# netstat -anp | grep -iw 799.
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 2999/java
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 2999/java
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 2989/java
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 2989/java
tcp 0 0 ESTABLISHED 2989/java
tcp 0 0 ESTABLISHED 2999/java

I'd like to the top two listening on instead of, just like the rest of them.


since Bitbucket is running on tomcat you only need to tell tomcat that it should accept local connections only. How do you do that?

Add address="" to your connector in the server.xml located in the conf folder of your Bitbucket installation. See line 6 in the example below.

<Connector port="7990" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
                   compressableMimeType="text/html,text/xml,text/plain,text/css,application/json,application/javascript,application/x-javascript" />

Please let me know if this was helpful.

I need to know this too
