Bitbucket Webhook to Jenkins

I am trying to configure Webhook on a Bitbucket repository to trigger a Jenkins Job with the following Url.

Url: JENKINS_URL/bitbucket-hook/


On testing the connection, I am getting following error:

" General SSLEngine problem"


Do I need to add some permissions either at the Jenkins or Bitbucket level?

Hi @sylvestor george,

This error means the applications aren't able to communicate over SSL. Follow the documentation to import the certificates in the JVM's that are running the applications.

Bitbucket's cert in Jenkins and vice versa.

this definitely worked for me.

Please help me resolving below issue


Keep in mind that you need to run the commands to import the certificate to the JKS as the root user. 

If you run bitbucket as a docker container do the following


docker exec -it --user root bitbucket bash
# import certificate to JKS
# Accept


docker restart bitbucket
