For information about Bitbucket integration in Phrase Strings, refer to Bitbucket (Strings).

Bitbucket Cloud connector allows the downloading of source files and uploading of target files directly to/from the Bitbucket Cloud repository. The connector uses the Bitbucket Cloud API to implement the integration and allows access to all repositories associated with a Bitbucket Cloud account.

Use Bitbucket Server Connector for self-hosted Bitbucket installations.

Use Cases

There are a number of use cases for the connector:

  • Project managers can add files directly to projects from an online repository.

  • Set up the submitter portal to allow Submitters to add files to requests directly from the online repository.

  • Use automated project creation (APC) to have new projects automatically created when a change in file size is detected in monitored files or a folder.

    • Selected files are imported the very first time APC runs. All files are imported when a folder is monitored.

    • Use the Git connector if you need to monitor an entire subdirectory.

    • This connector supports absolute path setting. Target translation files can be stored only in the same branch as the source file.

  • Set up continuous jobs to have selected files monitored for changes.


If requirements are:

  • Limiting Phrase access to a single repository.

  • Using an SSH key for authentication.

  • Monitoring an entire subdirectory for a change in automated project creation (APC).

  • Detection of file changes based on Last modified date as opposed to just file size.
