JIRA Issue Key not working when I try to push a code to Bitcuket


I currently use IntelliJ to push my code to Bitbucket. I am required to put a JIRA Issue Key in the comments section when I push my code. 


For some reason, when I include both the JIRA issue key and link I get this error message:

remote: Please follow the instructions to amend your commit(s).
remote: Checking for Jira key in this instance:
remote: Jira URL is empty in hook configuration. Please update it to the correct Jira instance.


Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Hi Casey,

Are you using Bitbucket Cloud ( or Bitbucket Server (self-hosted instance)? I'm asking because the two products are different.

I see that your question has the tag 'bitbucket-cloud', but I cannot find any Bitbucket Cloud account with the same email as your community account in our system, so I just wanted to get clarification first on which product you are using.

Could you also please let us know if the Jira instance in question is a Cloud or Server one?

Kind regards,
