How is licensed the code of the Bitbucket Server DIY Backup scripts?

We want to use the Bitbucket Server DIY Backup scripts provided by Atlassian (available here) as the basis to the backup system of our Bitbucket server. Before we can start using the scripts provided by Atlassian, we have to validate if the license covering the code is compatible with our legal requirements. But I can't find any license information. So do anyone know how the source of the Bitbucket DIY backup scripts are licensed?

Hi @Edouard Erulin , 

As the backup scripts are provided under the Atlassian Labs workspace in Bitbucket, I believe they are governed under Section 8 of our software agreement - as noted on the Atlassian Labs listing on the Marketplace:

About Atlassian Labs

Experiments released into the world! Atlassian Labs holds unsupported apps and personal projects by Atlassian developers. Although you may find unique and highly useful functionality in the Atlassian Labs apps, Atlassian takes no responsibility for your use of these apps. The apps are often developed in conjunction with Atlassian hack-a-thons and ShipIt days and are provided to you completely “as-is”, with all bugs and errors, and are not supported by Atlassian. Unless licensed otherwise by Atlassian, the Atlassian Labs apps are subject to Section 14 of the Cloud Terms of Service – – or Section 8 of the Software License Agreement –, as applicable, and are "No-Charge Products" as defined therein.

And here for your convenience, is Section 8 from the Software License Agreement:

8. No-Charge Software. We may offer certain Software (including some Atlassian Apps) to you at no charge, including free accounts, trial use, and Beta Versions as defined below (collectively, “No-Charge Software”). Your use of No-Charge Software is subject to any additional terms that we specify and is only permitted during the License Term we designate (or, if not designated, until terminated in accordance with this Agreement). Except as otherwise set forth in this Section, the terms and conditions of this Agreement governing Software, including Section 3.2 (Restrictions), fully apply to No-Charge Software.  We may terminate your right to use No-Charge Software at any time and for any reason in our sole discretion, without liability to you. You understand that any pre-release and beta versions of Software, and any pre-release and beta features within generally available Software, that we make available (collectively, “Beta Versions”) are still under development, may be inoperable or incomplete and are likely to contain more errors and bugs than generally available Software. We make no promises that any Beta Versions will ever be made generally available. In some circumstances, we may charge a fee in order to allow you to use Beta Versions, but the Beta Versions will still remain subject to this Section 8. All information regarding the characteristics, features or performance of any No-Charge Software (including Beta Versions) constitutes Atlassian’s Confidential Information. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all obligations or liabilities with respect to No-Charge Software, including any Support and Maintenance, warranty, and indemnity obligations.  NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE IN THIS AGREEMENT, ATLASSIAN’S MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU IN RESPECT OF NO-CHARGE SOFTWARE WILL BE US$100.

I hope that helps!

Daniel | Atlassian Support
