Bitbucket plugin

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to develop a Post-Receive Hook for Bitbucket server. My development environment is as follows:

OS – Windows 10

IDE – Intellij IDEA

Java – 1.8

SDK – Atlassian SDK 6.2.15

Maven – Atlassian provided 3.2.1


When creating the plugin, the automated plugin version is provided as 4.9.1. How can I upgrade the version to latest 5.6?

Possible solution tried:

Changed the Bitbucket server and database versions does not help and the atlas-run command ends in Build failure.


The package com.atlassian.bitbucket.ssh.does not have SshConfigurationService API by default. Trying to add maven dependency cannot find this package, however, com.atlassian.bitbucket.ssh.command API is available, but is of no direct use for my plugin.

How can I get SshConfigurationService API? Is there any special setup that is required?

Possible solution tried:

With some research I was able to find the dependency for SshConfigurationService API and could finally load that into plugin, but the version it is available at is 4.0.0-m10. Running the plugin with this dependency disables the plugin on Bitbucket server instance and no plugin modules can be loaded into the server; even though the logs suggests that the plugin was successfully deployed.


I can provide the specific logs if required, or an example for developing plugins for latest Bitbucket server will be good reference point.

Thanks in advance for the help,

Use "Yet-Another-Commit-Checker" as a working example to study for inspiration.

Look for the part near the bottom of its pom.xml with these and update them to suit your target Bitbucket version:



Finally, these days I always invoke "atlas-run" like this:

atlas-run -u 6.3.0

I remember everyone had to do that starting with Bitbucket 5.0's rollout about a year ago.

I can't be bothered to find out if that's still necessary or why I need to do that.  Letting black boxes be black boxes is one of my super powers.


p.s. the bitbucket-ssh dependency looks like this in a pom.xml file:




Thank you for your answer.

I have tried using atlas-run -u 6.3.0 with no success, however, the change you mentioned in pom.xml is certainly what i am going to try next and thank you for pointing out the git-repo for example study.

Hi G. Sylvie Davies,

Just wanted to update that i tried your solution but could get it to work.

Thanks for your response.
