Does the new build status feature not work with ssh alias?

I have a repo on bitbucket, checked out in Sourcetree via ssh with an alias (~/.ssh/config). Bitbucket pipelines are enabled and working.


In Sourcetree, I see a white plus sign on a blue background. On click, I am asked to 'migrate now'. Clicking asks to 'create a remote repository', which I obviously already have.


Am I misunderstanding something, or might the reason be that this new feature does not recognize the ssh alias as Bitbucket?

Sourcetree is looking at the remotes (for Bitbucket Cloud) and for the presence of a Bitbucket Pipelines configuration file. If those aren't present then the messaging changes.

1) There is a `bitbucket-pipelines.yml`

2) The origin remote is a Bitbucket Cloud repository, i.e., an ssh alias to Bitbucket Cloud

3) I see what I described


2a) push and fetch works


My question was, why do I see what I described, which is not the build status? Am I doing something wrong, or are ssh aliases NYI?
