Hi, I want to test this plugin which is for the server version.
What's the best way of doing this?
Install bitbucket locally on my machine?
Is there any alternative?
In large installs, it's typical to see staging / development environments used for testing things like upgrades and new plugins before promoting them to production. If that's not available in your environment (for example, if Bitbucket Server is just being used for a small team of 10 or less developers), then I would suggest testing on your local machine.
There are a couple options locally:
And depending on your technical expertise, you could use AWS to launch a test instance. We provide AMIs for Bitbucket Server and QuickStart templates for Bitbucket Data Center to get you up and running in an AWS environment quickly.
After that, install the plugin you want to test in Bitbucket and give it a whirl. When you're done, you can destroy the AWS instance or just shut down the local service.
I installed Bitbucket locally, then added the plugin.
The strange thing is I go to the settings page of the plugin and it's empty.
Any idea what could be causing this?
This is the plugin.
The local instance of Bitbucket seems to be working strange... for example I go to the Marketplace and it doesn't show anything because it doesn't have internet connection.
I've tried an offline installation of the plugin to see if the definitions it used require internet access:
It appears to come with rules already loaded! But I would say that typically the "Find new apps" page will throw an info banner at you if it can't connect to the internet (or at the very least, just return 0 results).
Are you testing on your local laptop and are there any proxies between your test install and the internet?
The plugin manager will let you manually install an app you've downloaded from the Marketplace:
I might suggest reinstalling the app via this method if you're seeing some issues with the current installation you have of it. It might also be worth just restarting Bitbucket if it's just your test instance still!
