Run BitBucket Pipeline from JIRA Automation


I have a pipeline configured which creates a new branch (we use git-flow). This pipeline should be triggered once an issue transitions from one status into another (automation trigger is set up).

For most of the part, I followed this guide (

The last part that is open is the authentication. I can't figure out how to properly authenticate the web request when calling bitbucket. It always results in HTTP401. I don't want to use my own authentication because the users will change the status of the tickets (it would be nice if the request is sent on behalf of the user/assignee) but for now, I just want to get it somehow working.

What are the steps required to authenticate the request between JIRA and BitBucket? It seems strange to me that the integration for this seems non-existing.

Thanks for any help.
