Is OAUTH supported in the "on-premises" Bitbucket Server?

Subject line kind of says it all.  I am trying to connect another app to Bitbucket via OAUTH, but all the OAUTH documentation that I find seems to be pointing to the cloud version of Bitbucket rather than an on-premises server.

We are running a tad behind on updates... we are still at v4.11. (Upgrading is one of the reasons why I need OAUTH.)

Is OAUTH supported in the on-site version?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Emmett,

OAuth is supported for on-premise instances as the Linking Bitbucket Server with Jira shows the Oauth link between Jira Server and BitBucket Server.  One thing to note is

Atlassian only recommends using OAuth authentication for application links, because of the greater security inherent with that protocol. We no longer recommend the Trusted Applications and Basic Access authentication types

See Link Atlassian applications to work together for more details.

Hopefully that helps.
