  2. Optionally receive ClickUp notifications when new Bitbucket activity items are added to tasks.

  3. Automatically (or manually) attach Bitbucket activity to ClickUp tasks.

  4. Automatically change Statuses with Bitbucket actions by adding the ClickUp task id to your commits using this format #{taskID}[status] For example: #1abc2de[closed]

  14. Select your preferences:

    • Use hosted secret?

    • Static IP

  15. Click Link Bitbucket

Now that you've authorized your account, proceed to the next step of attaching Bitbucket repositories to your Workspace.

Attach Bitbucket repositories to your Workspace

ClickUp allows multiple people to authorize Bitbucket within your Workspace, and also permits you to customize which repositories are shared with your Workspace.

This means that you can authorize your personal account without attaching all of your repositories; you can customize which ones to attach.

Attaching a repository does not give users access to your repository's codebase in anyway. It simply allows users to attach history items for that repository to the Space(s) you specify.

Note: You can only associate Bitbucket repositories where you have admin access.

Step 3: Select which Spaces are attached to your Repositories

You can customize which Spaces that repositories are attached to by expanding the drop-down to the right of Team Repos. In order to attach Bitbucket items to tasks, the Space must be attached to the repository.

Automatically associate Bitbucket activity in ClickUp

ClickUp will automatically pick up any new activity and associate it with tasks.

To enable this, you must:

Add a ClickUp task ID in any part of the pull request title, branch name, or commit message in one of these formats:

#{task_id}

CU-{task_id}

{custom_task_id}

For example:

#1abc2de

CU-1abc2de

prefix-1

Manually associating Bitbucket Activity

  1. Click the Bitbucket icon on any task

  2. Select a Repo

  3. Select a Branch

  4. Attach your commit

Automatically change task Status via Bitbucket

You can also change the status of a task from a commit or pull request.
To do this:

Add the ClickUp task ID in any part of the commit message, as well as the status you want inside brackets.
For example: #ud5b[ready]
Watch the task's status change in this video.

  4. Enter a description

  5. Create the pull request

As soon as you create a pull request in ClickUp or link an existing one a link to the associated ClickUp task will be added to the pull request!

Once a pull request is linked you will be able to see who opened it, the reviewer (if one is assigned), CI/CD status, and pull request status (open, review requested, under review, merged, closed) all from within the linked ClickUp task!
