Adding a Bitbucket Repository

If your repository lives in Bitbucket, you can connect your repository automatically, or connect via SSH if you prefer.

If you prefer SSH, buddybuild will automatically generate a secure SSH key for you to install into your source control system. Buddybuild will use this key to clone your repository.

Important

Buddybuild has first-class integrations with the following repo providers:

Buddybuild’s integrations provide the following features:

  • Commit status updates

  • Support for pull request workflows

  • Integration with issue tracking

  • Selective builds

  • Federated login

  • Automated access management

  • Ability to select from available repositories

If you choose to use SSH to connect to your repo, buddybuild can only access your repository’s file content, and the features noted above do not work.

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Enter the SSH Git Clone URL

Head over to Bitbucket and find the repository you would like to connect with buddybuild. Within the main page of that repository, look to the top-right for HTTPS URL. Click on the HTTPS dropdown menu and select SSH.

Warning

Private git submodules and private cocoapods

If your project depends on any code in other private git repos, the SSH key will need to be added to those repos as well.

Navigate back to buddybuild and click on the Build button.

Buddybuild will checkout your project code and kick off a simulator build. The build should finish within a few seconds.

That’s it. You’re now connected to buddybuild. The next step is to invite testers to try out your App.
