Search in "Find new add-ons" not working

After upgrading to Bitbucket 5.2.0 we are no longer able to search "Find new add-ons". Apps are there but when you type to search the spinner appears and stays on the screen. Tried Safari, Chrome, restared Bitbucket but no luck.

Please advice!

Hi Martin, the most likely scenarios for this to happen is that whether you're using a reverse proxy and/or the base URL doesn't match the URL you're using to access Bitbucket. Is this your case?

If you have a reverse proxy make sure it's properly configured or check that Bitbucket is correctly  configured to reflect that there is a reverse proxy server. You might find this useful Securing Bitbucket Server.

Let us know if this helped you!



Hi Ana,

Thank you for getting back to me on this so soon. Yes, we're using a reverse proxy and the configuration for that is in the server.xml.

<Connector port="7990" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
proxyName="bitbucket.domain.tld" proxyPort="443" scheme="https" />

I've double checked the configuration and it's the same as before the upgrade.

Hi Martin,

Starting with Bitbucket Server 5, server.xml is no longer used, so you will need to make the changes in instead, as described in the document that Ana sent you a link to.

Thanks Ana and Christian! Changing settings in solved it.

Glad we could help, Martin! Have a nice day :)


After enabling debug mode and clicking on "Find new add-ons" I get to see it was able to get information for the marketplace.

When typing in the search field and pressing enter, nothing happens in the log file.
