Bitbucket database on MSSQL Server 2022

Yeghishe Hovhannisyan July 3, 2023


Did anyone already try to upgrade the sql server hosting the BitBucket database to version 2022? 

Any feedback regarding to it or may by recommendations from Atlassian support? 


Thank you in advance

Are there plans to support SQL 2022? 

We literally were getting ready to cutover our SQL Server that is housing the database this week to SQL 2022, but just put the brakes on.

Hello @Yeghishe Hovhannisyan ! Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

MSSQL 2022 doesn't appear to be supported on Bitbucket Server/Data Center.

Yeghishe Hovhannisyan July 3, 2023

Well , the thing is when application vendors provide info about supported versions, in general it means that they support the corresponding compatibility level , in this case 160, which is not yet supported.
But if to keep intact the database compatibility level and just upgrade the server version, in that case normally the breakthrough changes which could have impact on the workload, should not apply to that database.
At least that is how I understand the "compatibility certification" from MS documents.

So it would be interesting to know if anyone already tried to use MSSQL Server 2022 for BitBucket and if what is the experience ?

Also would be interesting to know the recommendation of Atlassian support/team if can we normally go to MSSQL 2022 with that scenario ?

Hi Yeghishe,

Bitbucket Server doesn't support MS SQL 2022, regardless of compatibility level. If you run into issues, Support will not be able to assist in any way until you downgrade to a supported version.

Thank you for reply.
Do you maybe have information if when is expected, Bitbucket and other Atlassian products would get 2022 support ?
