Connect Fisheye on BitBucket Git repository


I'm trying connect my Fisheye with repository in BitBucket. This repository is a GIT.

When i connect using HTTPS(Because Fisheye don't support connect in GIT using SSH), the message appear on screen:

Error testing connection.
Error talking to repository:

at com.atlassian.fisheye.git.GitScmConfig.testConnection(
at com.cenqua.fisheye.RepositoryConfig.testConnection(
at com.atlassian.fisheye.spi.admin.impl.DefaultRepositoryAdminService.testConnectionFor(
at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(

Connection failed.

Anyone able to connect the Fisheye with a BitBucket repository Git?

Thank you.

Yup, it works fine for me.

Probably the best thing to do is to enable debug logging in FishEye by going to "Administration > Global Settings > Server > Debug Logging" and select Turn Debug Logging "ON".
Then try to connect to the repo again, and inspect the fisheye-debug-yyyy-mm-dd.log file for any further info around the moment the error is logged.

If you can't find the cause of the problem I suggest you create an issue at

Make sure that you have git installed on your server; I hit this issue and that instantly solved my problem. Hand, meet forehead!
