I have a CLI tool that needs to manipulate Bitbucket cloud repos. I can't figure out how to do it with Authorization code grant or Implicit grant, because there's no browser. I'm new to OAuth, but it looks like the Client Credentials Grant Type is the way to go. But there's no documentation.
Is it supported?
If not, does anybody know how to do browser based OAuth from the command line?
Yes, the Client Credentials grant type is supported by Bitbucket. Read about it here.
Bitbucket also supports app passwords. Perhaps that might be a more suitable option for your use-case (I'm only guessing your use-case, so I could be wrong). You can create a temporary password for your account and also set scopes for it.
Let me know if this works out for you.
Oh, that documentation is nice. It'd be cool if you could do a direct link to it from https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/oauth-on-bitbucket-cloud-238027431.html, or even combine them.
But app passwords might work better. Is there documentation about them somewhere?
I'm in the process of updating much of this documentation and moving some of it to our new API docs area. I'm working on a new authentication section which also includes app passwords. It's still in a pretty early state but we are working on improvements.
