How to use BitBucket Server API in Python Edited

I am new to BitBucket Server and I have a lot of problems now with playing around its API.

I have searched on Internet how to use BitBucket Server API in Python and some told me to use Stash. However, when I try this in Python, I keep get 503 Service Unavailable.


import stashy

stash = stashy.connect("http://localhost:7990/stash", "USERNAME", "PASSWORD")

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/PATH/", line 5, in <module>
File "/PATH/miniconda3/lib/python3.6/site-packages/stashy/", line 124, in list
return list(self.all(filter))
File "/PATH/miniconda3/lib/python3.6/site-packages/stashy/", line 74, in paginate
File "/PATH/miniconda3/lib/python3.6/site-packages/stashy/", line 50, in maybe_throw
raise e
stashy.errors.GenericException: Unknown error: 503(Service Unavailable)

Does anyone have any ideas on what's happening here? Many thanks.

BTW, my ultimate goal is to issue comments on pull request in BitBucket Server using Python.

Hi Jekyll, looks like you're using Stashy, which is a Python API client for the Atlassian Stash REST API created by a third party.

In their documentation it says that Stashy supports Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.3 but it seems like you're using Python 3.6, can you confirm this?

If you're already following the documentation at and using the supported versions and you still get errors, I'd recommend you to contact the author directly at

Hope that helps!


Oh, thank you so much. I can't believe I should overlook that.

No worries, glad I could help! Have a good day :)


When I tried stashy recently, it works well with Python 3.6. When I installed it via

pip install stashy

I got version 0.5 installed and it works.
