How to integrate Jira Software with Bitbucket Cloud?

We have a locally running Jira Software (v6.4.6) and we use BitBucket cloud ( I want to integrate the two as much as possible.

Currently there is integration from Jira side - next to issues we have the "Create Branch" link which works, albeit it doesn't select the correct repository (can you assign repositories to projects/issues/something?) However it doesn't work the other way - the created branches and git commits don't show up at the issue (even if they all have the issue number first thing in their name).

What am I missing? (Note that we do have a fairly restrictive firewall; if Jira itself needs to connect to an external service, or BitBucket tries to connect to our internal Jira, it's likely to fail. We can open up whatever holes we need though - we just need to know what they are)

You should allow both servers to connect to each other over https (usually port 443 unless you've changed it) and ssh (22) if you're using that for bitbucket.

Once https is set up, make sure you can set up the "application link" in JIRA bi-directionally.
