Bitbucket and Google SSO



I would like to enforce my team to use only Google SSO to login to bitbucket. Right now, if the account is created first, it can be login using both Google SSO and previous login credential. If the account is created with Google SSO at the beginning, it is working fine. Do I need to remove all the user account and recreate again to enforce Google SSO?

There is no way to force users to use Bitbucket in any specific way, including the way they choose to log in. Accounts are owned by their users and are not under the control of the teams they are a member of.

If a user signs up through Google, they can still set a password and log in with that the next time.

Dear Atlassian,

We need to be able to log in to our BitBucket Server using Google Accounts, similar to how JIRA Cloud hooks up to a google domain. I am sure many people would rejoice if you made this possible, NOT via a Crowd directory, and NOT via a JIRA directory!


Hi Myo, 

Another option could be to edit those usernames to match their Google username (and email address). This way they can still use both methods to authenticate. smile



Hi Erik and Elisa,

Thanks for the update. I was expecting Bitbucket would able to force with SSO setup but seems cannot able to have it. Is this because of we are using bitbucket-cloud service? If we are on Stach server, would this able to get it done?

Hi Myo,

As far as I understand, your need is to prevent users from having multiple credentials to access to the same account.

If you used Atlassian server versions (including Stash/Bitbucket server and Crowd), you could force your users to log onto your Atlassian products and Google Apps with their Crowd credentials only.
