Create new app password using existing app password

Mattias Åsell August 14, 2022

I'm trying figure out how to setup auto rotation for my app password using the bitbucket api.

The idea is: I create one app password with X amount of permissions including account permissions. After 30 days I'd like to create a new app password with the same permission set and delete the old one.


Does anyone know if there is an API endpoint for creating or deleting app passwords?

Hi @Mattias Åsell and welcome to the Atlassian Community. Unfortunately, there is not a set of APIs/resources for managing app passwords in Bitbucket Cloud. App passwords can only be created/destroyed in the Access Management > App Passwords section of your account management.

Any particular reason? Where can I create a request for this to be added? Feels like a basic security feature.


Realistically users aren't going to regenerate the app password, hence I'd like to build a feature so this can be done automatically.
