How to use token with Bitbucket server REST API?


I'm trying to trigger a jenkins job to create branches with jenkins plugin from bitbucket which makes use of bitbucket server rest api. With that said, curl script uses basic auth as -u user:pass, so is there a way that I can use bitbucket token api instead to trigger the job?


Thanks in advance.

Which bitbucket are you using? 

For cloud version see below:



I think he's on Bitbucket Server.

For Bitbucket Server (or Datacentre), try installing the free Token Authenticator add-on.  Then you can use X-Auth-User and X-Auth-Token HTTP headers.  You need both.

@G. Sylvie Davies []Thanks for your suggestion. Actually it does work when I try to place the generated token under the request, but not remotely.

What I'm doing is - Triggering a jenkins build from bitbucket and asking user to enter some parameters. Once the job is success it will create PR from specified branch (user parameters) to base branch. At this point I don't want user to enter password and neither I can use Token. Do you have any other recommendation?
