Changing URL of crowd Server


We are moving our crowd server (version 3.4.5) to a new host. For all of our other applications (confluence, jira etc.) we were able to find the configuration for how to connect to Crowd. For BitBucket I was not able to find it. The only place that I did find it was under Settings -> User directories. There I was able to see Crowd server along with the information about it but no place to change the actual URL of the crowd server. Currently it's pointed to localhost and I don't see a way to change it.

Well according to official documentation

It should be under User Directories (under 'Accounts') 

Which version of Bitbucket do you have? 

I have version 6.10.5, As you can see the in above image when I go to user Directories all I see is that I have a crowd server but there is no way to edit it.

Well you probably are logged in as a user from that Directory. In order to edit it you need to have an admin account from Internal Directory. Then you should see edit option for Crowd server.

@Mirek My User is full admin for the system. I can manage and do anything except this. I can even add another directory I just can't edit this one.

@Dovid Bender , as I mentioned if your user is from the Crowd directory you would not be able to edit it - you cannot edit something that you are part of to prevent locking out. 

So in order to do so you would have to log in as user that would be from internal directory (not Crowd) and would have admin access. Then you should see an edit button. 

Please read Updating directories from below documentation to get detailed info about this limitation

I somehow missed that. I switched to a local user and that let me change it.
