Repository Mirror Plugin for Bitbucket Server - process timed out Edited


I want to use Repository Mirror Plugin for Bitbucket Server to mirror repository from our internal bitkucket server to remote repo. Plugin is installed, enabled and configured (I've tried with https, git and ssh - in all cases the error log was the same). Our internal bitbucket (v4.12.1, git version 1.9.1) server is behind reverse proxy (apache), configuration is done according to documentation (, there's communication to WAN through squid proxy (we've got apriopriate configuration at bikbucket side, also git itself is configured to use our squid proxy for WAN communication).

The problem is to mirror repository with "Repository Mirror Plugin for Bitbucket Server", here's bitbucket log:

 ERROR [threadpool:thread-4] username @1I15U79x605x938201x0 1bo9kzh client_ip_address, reverse_proxy_ip_address "PUT /rest/api/latest/projects/~username/repos/test-repo-mirroring/settings/hooks/com.englishtown.stash-hook-mirror:mirror-repository-hook/settings HTTP/1.1" c.e.b.hook.MirrorRepositoryHook Failed to mirror repository test-repo-mirroring after 5 attempts.

I've done troubleshooting according to vendor suggestions (

git push --prune +refs/heads/*:refs/heads/* +refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*

and it works.

When bitbucket is trying mirror to remote repo there are no connections to our proxy server, it suggests that problems are within our internal bitbucket server.

Can you please suggest what can cause this situation? How can we debug it more detailed way?

Any suggestion very appreciated.
