Importing Bitbucket Cloud project to Bitbucket Server fails

I'm trying to import repositories from Bitbucket Cloud to my Bitbucket server v5.11.1.

My server is running behind reverse proxy and is configured to use SCL git version 2.9.3 (

When i'm trying to import repository from Cloud i'm getting this error in atlassian-bitbucket.log file.

It looks like SCL git version didn't want to work with my bitbucket server even thought  all libraries where installed. So my solution to this problem, downloaded latest git version from Github and compiled it from source then added neccesary paths. Now everything works. :)

Awesome news @Karl Hendrik Soone! Thanks for sharing!

Hi @Karl Hendrik Soone,

Based on the log, it looks like there may be a missing library on the Server hosting Bitbucket.

I found this article that may help addressing this problem.


As alternative, you could also attempt to import the repository using the Import an existing Git project into Bitbucket Server on the following page:

Importing code from an existing project

Hey @Caterina Curti,


At first i thought also it might be missing library. I tried solving my problem based on this article, but i didn't help. Because when i run following command:

find / -name, then it outputs the library path.

That's interesting and I've seen similar cases in the past, but there does not seem to be a straightforward (and one fit all) solution for this.


What about using the Import code from an existing project option instead?

I'm currently trying out option, my only problem with that is, i have 100+ repos and i'm want to import all of the repositories to my Bitbucket server. :(
