Personal Access Token for Bitbucket Cloud?

Hello!

 

I can only find documentation for personal access token for Bitbucket Server: https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver/personal-access-tokens-939515499.html

 

Is this functionality also available for Bitbucket Cloud?

 

Thank you

Hi David, apologies for the late response! I hope this answer will still help someone, so here it goes :)

Bitbucket Cloud does not have personal access tokens, but depending on what use you wanted to give them you can use App passwords or OAuth instead.

Would this suit you?

Cheers!

What is the reason behind lack of *personal access tokens* feature in Bitbucket cloud? 

As a developer, I find access tokens very handy when you are executing Git commands (i.e. clone, push, pull, etc). I use Github's personal access token on daily basis and it's super convenient. 

I guess I will have to disable 2FA in my bitbucket :( 

Hi @Raf Fareen, Bitbucket developer here.

I believe that App passwords that Ana referred to above are just what you're looking for. They were introduced exactly for the case when 2FA is turned on but some scoped access with basic auth is required.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

@Daniil Penkin - I'm curious why Atlassian didn't go with calling them "Personal access tokens"? :-)

Unlike personal access token app password is not enough to authenticate with Bitbucket Cloud, it also requires your username (login). So it is a password.
