Unable to locate the SAML metadata file for BitBucket ADFS Integration?

We are trying to integrate Bitbucket with ADFS SSO but we need to provide the relying party trust and claim configuration guide along with the SAML metadata file for the proper configuration in ADFS.


I have been googling about this for like a week now but unable to get any tangible information. Can anyone please help me get the proper files or information to achieve the same.

Hi @shashank tyagi 

There are various alternatives for setting up SAML in Atlassian:
1) For Cloud you need to do this through Atlassian Access.
2) For Datacenter you can use native SAML features (solving very basic SAML setups).
3) For both Server and Datacenter you can use Marketplace SSO apps.

Could you describe your Bitbucket environment a bit more. Do you run Bitbucket on server, data center or cloud?

I am from one of the Marketplace SSO app vendors, and we allow you to setup ADFS and exchange trust certificates and meta data through powershell scripts:

Hello Jon,


Thanks for the suggestion. But I just dont understand why I need to buy an SSO plugin from the marketplace. Doesn't Atlassian provide in-built support for integrating SSO in bitbucket.?




Hi @shashank tyagi

for Bitbucket Cloud - there is Atlassian Access. SAML is a paid feature there-

For Bitbucket Data-Center there is a basic SAML Functionality included. However if you need more advanced Features you need a external App.

For Bitbucket Server your only option is a 3rd Party App.

Here is a list of the 3rd Party Apps available in the marketplace for Bitbucket:

I work for resolution, the Vendor of the #1 App@Jon Espen Ingvaldsen - Kantega SSO works for the #2 entry. Both are good Solutions.


HI @cr @Jon Espen Ingvaldsen - Kantega SSO 

I am using Bitbucket server v5.14.0 for this. I do get an option for SSO Authentication under settings tab. I need to send the proper metadata.xml, relying party trust and claim configuration to ADFS for it to work. 


Are you  saying that I can't get this information until I purchase a 3rd party plugin for it.
