Error when installing app from URL on bitbucket cloud. Edited


I've decided to develop an app for Bitbucket. I have been trying to complete a getting-started tutorial but there is an issue with installing app.

Installing using this window


and this url:

always gives me the error: 

"The add-on server wasn't able to authorize your request. Try again, or contact the add-on vendor for help."

I can't find any information about this error. My app name and url are correct

My app is visible in develop apps tab

Hi @Kamil_N

That text field accepts URLs for an Atlassian Connect descriptor. This lets you install Atlassian Connect-based apps in Bitbucket without needing to register them. The URL will look something like 

The /authorize URL you mentioned is intended to be navigated to directly in the browser, not supplied to this text field. It is a different way of installing apps in Bitbucket than going through the Install dialog.

Hope this helps!
