How do I connect a Bitbucket repository with a Jira Cloud project?

I have followed the instructions to enable Bitbucket and JIRA integration in the Cloud, which all seems fine.

I was expecting to find a JIRA Project configuration allowing me to specify which Bitbucket repository(ies) were related to that project, or alternatively a Bitbucket repo configuration to point to a JIRA project.

But I can't find this anywhere, all I can see is (in JIRA) under DVCS accounts, a repository mentioned. But this is in the non-project specific configurations.

What am I misunderstanding or missing?

Hi Daniel!

In that case you might want to do it from the JIRA site. To link a project to a repository, select Projects in the top navigation bar and choose the JIRA project you want to connect to Bitbucket Cloud. Then choose Add source code and enter the URL of the repository. You can find this information at Connect JIRA Cloud to Bitbucket Cloud.

Hope this helps :)


Thanks, that's what I was missing.

Hello Ana, I am trying hard to find the location within the project that you are suggesting however, no luck. Could you be more specific or is there a white paper on how to connect JIRA project to a specific Bitbucket repo. .. I am running JIRA 7.5.3 (server) and Bitbucket Academic Cloud option. Thank you, Denis 

Hi Denis,

Unfortunately, documentation is not updated and I struggled as well to connect my repo with the JIRA project.

You have to find these options in the left navigation bar:





Add Item



Then, under Settings, you would find link to add repo.


Hope this helps.
