Bitbucket app password rotation

I want to use a private bitbucket repository as a source for AWS Sagemaker service.

I've already checked this and It is working great. But the security team wants to implement a periodical rotation of the password (Bitbucket app password).

I wonder if it is possible to create a new app password through Bitbucket API using the old app password? Is it possible to do that through Python API?

I found a couple of repositories for working with Bitbucket and I don't know can they allow me to achieve my goal...


Any ideas?

Thanks, Joao! 

may I ask why,?

is this on the road map?

I would strongly recommend opening a request ticket at in that way it increases the chances to be prioritized.
