Issues grabbing source from Bitbucket within AWS CodePipeline


When trying to Release a change from AWS CodePipeline (we have an existing Bitbucket integration), we intermittently get the following error message below.

"Action execution failed

[Bitbucket] Bitbucket returned an Internal Error exception. Please retry shortly. If the issue continues it may be reported on the Bitbucket status page at"
Usually retrying it gets past this issue and continues normally, but starting this afternoon around 1:30PM CST, we've been consistently receiving this message, even with multiple retries and on all of our other pipelines. We're not seeing an outage reported on
Here's the image pop-up we get for Action execution failed when we try to deploy our changes:

It is happening again now. Haven't been able to pull from Bitbucket for some time now.

I can verify that when I change the repository settings to "Full Clone" it starts working again.

Same, happening again!

Hi @Mark C , seeing the same issue on my end. I just setup a CodePipeline with BitBucket source. The Source stage worked fine on first launch right after creating pipeline. Once I committed a new change in BitBucket, Source stage reran and failed. Reverted to original source code and same issue. I think its related to the webhook and will troubleshoot that next. Just want to confirm issue is still present.


Edit 1:

There's a few url redirects I've noticed when accessing target repo from project level in bitbucket webapp. It adds a redundant '/src/main/' to path. Not sure if this is new or has always existed but doesn't seem right.

Also, when I access the repo publicly with the https clone address provided, there's a pop up about credentials no longer needed (click OK) and lands me on what should be the repo address BUT without the redundant '/src/main/'. Reloading this page presents same error but once I add a '/' to end of url, shazam. It redirects through the redundant URL and correctly displays the repo.

Hope this helps. Hoping a fix is coming soon.

Same issue for me

Had the same issue since Jan 12, 2022 6:00 PM (UTC±0:00)

Have the same issue, which started a few hours ago. Full clone is not an acceptable workaround for me (using some codepipeline feature which does not work with full clone)

I was able to resolve this by ensuring the code pipeline source stage does a FullClone rather than the default "CodePipeline default"

Thanks, this fix the issue !

Having the same issue

I don't know if this will help the attlassian devs to debug this issue but codepipeline is using this URL to get the src for the branch and that results into "

"Resource not found

if you have your branch naming convention as feature/branch then bitbucket fails to redirect to URL like so

Hi, how do you know that? tks

As of 16 January 2022, this bug still occur. Thanks to Frank DiRocco's advice, I solved it by setting code_build_clone_output as True in my CodeStar Connection.

Like this:

code_build_clone_output=True, # Bitbucket fix

We experience this issue today for all our branches with aws pipeline

Problem solve! nice!
