End of life policy for bitbucket smart mirrors


Hi community maybe you can help me to clarify something.

Bitbucket Data Center has feature called Smart Mirror - which comes to "just" server installation and startup flag "mirror". Some time ago there was instruction that mirrors need to be version 4.2+ Also they don't need to be upgraded to align with DC nodes.

But such setup end up in a place where you can have 'n' mirrors in version 4.2+ and 7.11 on DC. How smart mirror version matched EOL? Versions older than 6.2 are not even listed on


Does mirror version matter? Or maybe only DC is important and mirrors can stay 4.2 for next years?

Hi Marcin,

Anything not listed at has already reached end-of-life status. EOL applies to all parts of the product including Smart Mirrors.

Note that it is only up to version 6.6 that you can have version-mismatched deployments of DC and Smart Mirrors - with 6.7 Mirror Farms were introduced which no longer allows for this.
