I have 2FA enabled for my Atlassian account. It gets asked when I log into my Bitbucket account using Atlassian account.
Why does bitbucket allow enabling 2FA again? Would this mean I need two different 2FA codes when logging in?
What benefit would enabling it also on bitbucket side offer? What am I missing here?
Welcome to the community!
There are currently two types of mobile authentication for Atlassian, which are 2FA on the Atlassian account and 2SV for Bitbucket account specific.
Atlassian account 2FA is used across the Atlassian account level across Atlassian products, while Bitbucket 2SV is used only for Bitbucket products as another security layer.
It's mainly used for Premium features to enforce Bitbucket-specific 2SV
That said, the benefit is for Premium features and can be enabled if you wish to have additional security for your code access.
I hope this clarifies.
Beginning on April 4th, we will be implementing push limits. This means that your push cannot be completed if it is over 3.5 GB. If you do attempt to complete a push that is over 3.5 GB, it will fail...
