Guide: Using Bitbucket with Databox


How to connect Bitbucket to Databox


How to connect Bitbucket to Databox

To connect a Bitbucket Account in Databox, go to Data Sources > + New connection. Type Bitbucket in the search bar and click on the green Connect button. 

This will open the Authorization window, which is where you will be prompted to enter your Bitbucket login credentials and authorize the Databox app. 

How much historical data is synced when you first connect Bitbucket to Databox?

When you connect a new Bitbucket Data Source in Databox, limited historical data is initially synced. 

For more information about the amount of historical data available for a specific Metric, please contact our Support Team at help@databox.com.

Pro Tip: Once your Bitbucket Data Source is connected and actively syncing data, we store the data that's collected in our own database. This allows us to accumulate more data over time as more data syncs are made so that you can report on more historical Bitbucket data in your Databox reports. Learn more here

What time zone does Bitbucket data sync in? 

Bitbucket data is synced in UTC.

Which Bitbucket Repositories are accessible?

It is currently only possible to report on Repositories that you own. It is not currently possible to report on Team Repositories in Databox.

Further, only public Repositories are accessible. Private Repositories are not currently accessible. 

How to access pre-built Bitbucket Templates

  1. Navigate to the Databoards > Public Templates
  2. In the Data Source drop-down list, select Bitbucket
  3.  To view a preview of the Template populated with dummy data, click Preview
  4. To pull the Template into your Account and re-populate it with your own Bitbucket data, click Use Template
  5. Select the appropriate Bitbucket Data Source from the drop-down list to complete the process. The Databoard will be re-populated with data from the selected Bitbucket Account and can be found on the  Databoards page

Pro Tip: Once the Databoard is available on the Databoards page, it is completely disconnected from the public Template. Therefore, you can further customize this Databoard to meet your specific needs using the Designer.
