Retrieve list of users with two step verification enabled on Bitbucket

Hello - At our organization, we are trying to get all the employees to enable 2FA for their bitbucket accounts. We are looking for a way to validate if a user has enabled 2FA or not. At the moment, i can get this done only in 1 way, that is by getting Atlassian Access - I can enforce and get a report from Managed Accounts page.


Is there an API or a place that can provide generate a report of al users who enabled 2FA themselves on Bitbucket?

I am addressing this currently in 2 steps:

Step 1:

Running the curl requests (for page 1 and page 2 - because I know the number of users on our account is less than 200. Number of users per page is hard limited to 100 by Atlassian)


curl -s --user <Username>:<ApiKey> "<Org>/members?pagelen=100&page=1" | json_pp | pbcopy


curl -s --user <Username>:<ApiKey> "<Org>/members?pagelen=100&page=2” | json_pp | pbcopy

Paste the contents in an excel after each curl request


Apply filters and look for has_2fa_enabled flag for each user and filter them 


To make my life easier I wrote a py script that can do this for me and send list to slack channel.

How do I generate the API keys, the password didnt work here ? and this api endpoint still working. The docs says its deprecated.

That would help me a lot at this point

Hello @Ganesh Narasimhadevara,

Thanks for reaching out.

I'm not sure there's a reporting mechanism available for this yet. However, you can enforce two-factor authentication for a Bitbucket team if it is on a Premium plan.

Hope this helps.


That would be an extremely interesting feature to be added
