Is there a compare and merge tool come along with the Bitbucket?

I am setting up a devops POC for my organiztation. We are using bitbucket as repository tool. Is there any tool come along with bitbucket for compare and merging?  I downloaded sourcetree and cloned the repo from bitbucket as well. Sourcetree is giving me an option to launch an external merge tool only. Is therre any other way to comapre and merge in bitbucket? or we need to install a merge toll like kdiff3 and use it along with Sourcetree?

Hi Anoop, are you using Bitbucket Server or Cloud? Bitbucket has a diff feature and a Compare view tool. Is that enough for you or were you looking for something else?

Regarding SourceTree, this is not necessary to work along Bitbucket, but you can use it if you want. SourceTree is just a visual interface for command line Git. If you want to use a different merge/diff tool than the default, you'll need to install it first. 

Best regards,
