Migration from Bitbucket Data center to cloud

Nidhin Nambiar October 5, 2022

Hi,

 

I am looking for some details regarding Bitbucket Data center to cloud.

 

I went through this Wiki - https://support.atlassian.com/migration/docs/plan-your-bitbucket-server-to-cloud-migration/?_ga=2.10837364.1350135032.1597021693-1498980259.1557432741  which helps a lot.

 

Can anyone also share their experience migrating bitbucket to cloud? What are the challenges encountered that we should take as a lesson and also the limitation of Bitbucket cloud migration tool.

 

Many Thanks,

Nidhin

Hey Nidhin,

Welcome to the Bitbucket Cloud Community!

I notice that you have not yet received a response, so I thought I would share my experience as a support technician.

The BCMA tool is powerful and effective when performing the migration to Cloud if the documentation is read carefully, which I can already see that you have done so far :)

In terms of pitfalls, I would say that repository size limits apply in Bitbucket Cloud (4GB) so I would recommend that any large repositories are garbage collected/have any old branches trimmed to ensure that the size is conformed to prior to migrating.

Also, I would suggest ensuring that each repository has a unique name prior to migration so that there are no duplicate name conflicts - this is because projects in Bitbucket Cloud are simply a way of grouping repositories and there is no separation like in BBS/BBDC.

To give further context, I would suggest reading through this article which gives the functional differences between the two products:
https://support.atlassian.com/migration/docs/differences-administering-bitbucket-data-center-and-cloud/

https://www.atlassian.com/migration/assess/compare-cloud-data-center/bitbucket

Remember, if you have any issues/concerns/questions during the migration process - you can contact our support team at any time for assistance at the following link, this will be your greatest asset during the migration process:

Hi @Ben 

Thank you so much for the prompt response. This really helps.

Also wanted to check if any documents  you could share here with respect to Network hardening (allowlist ideas) or how to set up a private link for Bitbucket cloud. 

Regards,

Nidhin

Hey Nidhin,

Premium subscription customers have the ability to configure an IP Allowlist on their Bitbucket Cloud workspace, please see the following article for further information:
https://support.atlassian.com/bitbucket-cloud/docs/control-access-to-your-private-content/

We also have an article here detailing the IP addresses which need to be allowed for corporate firewalls:
https://support.atlassian.com/bitbucket-cloud/docs/what-are-the-bitbucket-cloud-ip-addresses-i-should-use-to-configure-my-corporate-firewall/

Please let me know if you have any further questions :)

Cheers!

Hi @Ben ,

 

Thanks again. The above insights helps in add some details with respect to Network Hardening.

We are preparing reports about the repo, wanted to check if there is any REST API or is there any way we can increase the limit of API response body.

For example -  REST API call, we get the first 25 repos listed in response body and there is a way to increase that limit to fetch all repos or a count  to 1000?

"/rest/api/1.0/repos "  this API endpoint will give first 25 repos in the response body.

Since there are more than 1000 repos in our  bitbucket today, so I want to explore a way to list all repos in the response body.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated! 

Regards,

Nidhin

Hi @Nidhin 

Are you referring to the Bitbucket Server API or Bitbucket Cloud?

Regardless, if you add the following to the end of your query - you can increase the page length to 100:


https://api.bitbucket.org/2.0/repositories/{workspaceID}?pagelen=100

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

Hi @Nidhin Nambiar  & @Ben  : I have joined a new organization where we are working on Bitbucket server 5.2.2 while exploring a move to cloud.

I was researching around it and found this thread. Reaching out for your inputs in terms of how much time it took for your team to migrate Bitbucket server to Cloud. With some tentative timelines , we would also be able to plan accordingly.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.
