Migration of On-prem Bitbucket to cloud with LDAP Integration

cm devops July 25, 2023

We currently have an organization account with Jira using SSO and want to migrate our on-premise Bitbucket to the cloud while still utilizing our LDAP on the LAN. Do we need to create a new account for our organization in Bitbucket, and what are the recommended methods to secure the LDAP channel between Bitbucket and our LDAP server?

Hi @cm devops and welcome to the community!

SAML SSO is possible in Bitbucket Cloud if you have an Atlassian Access subscription.

You can see the identity providers we support for SAML SSO on the following page, in the section Single sign-on:

The following documentation has more info on how to configure SAML SSO:

If you already have an Atlassian Access subscription and if you have configured SAML SSO for your domain, then any Bitbucket Cloud users with an email from your domain will also be redirected to your identity provider when logging in. There is no need for extra configuration.


User provisioning is not possible with Bitbucket Cloud yet. This feature is on our roadmap:

Any updates will be posted in the open feature request we have about this:

You can add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.


If you use the Bitbucket Cloud Migration Assistant to migrate, your users will be migrated as well. However, you will need to set up user groups and permissions after the migration.

Below are some resources for migrating with the Bitbucket Cloud Migration Assistant:

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
