Can I use git submodule or git subtree with BitBucket Server?

In all of the `git submodule` or `git subtree` examples I can find, the submodule/subtree is referenced by a public, absolute URL.

We are using Bitbucket Server and accessing the repositories via HTTP. As such, the URL for a repository is different for each user. If I create a submodule using my personal URL, it will not be accessable to anybody else.

Is it possible for us to use `git submodule` or `git subtree` with Bitbucket Server?

Yes, ofcourse it is possible.

I always recommend to use relative URLs. Then it does not even matter if ssl or https is used.
