Bitbucket hipchat - self signed ssl

Looking if anyone out there has been able to integrate Bitbucket with HipChat using a self signed SSL cert. This appears different than integrating with Confluence/Jira/etc, since Bitbucket doesn't have a /%java_home%/lib/security/cacerts path, so I have no idea where to add the cert from HipChat to the Bitbucket keystore.  Any thoughts? Thanks.

The certificate must be added to the JVM's truststore used by Bitbucket - this is similar to how you've done with the other applications. To determine the Java home of the JVM used by Bitbucket you can go to Bitbucket Administration > Support Tools > System Information tab then search for java.home under the Java Runtime Environment section.

From this path you can then find the cacerts to which you must add the certificate. My Java path, for instance, is /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_60.jdk/Contents/Home/jre, so I will find cacerts under /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_60.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/security.
