Bitbucket Server to Datacenter Upgrade Process

I just installed Bitbucket Server 5.7.1 and I realized that only the Datacenter version supports SAML 2.0.


Can you direct me to how I can upgrade my existing Server instance to Datacenter? Thanks!

The installers for both Server and DC are actually the same:

DC ( links to:

and Server ( links to:

This means that the DC features are just enabled by the license code, so if you upgrade your Server license to a DC license ( you'll be able to deploy your smartmirrors. You WILL NOT be leveraging the full capabilities of BB DC until you move to shared storage/database/elasticsearch etc, but the SmartMirrors may be a good first step anyway.


This is correct! Thanks Craig.

You can upgrade the license by logging into and selecting the Upgrade action. Regarding the installation itself, please follow Install Bitbucket Data Center for detailed steps.
