Pros: The Branch Permission feature is one of the most requested features on other git-like alternatives, and the granularity of it makes it practically a need-to-have feature on highly secured code repos.

The JIRA integration is just pure win.

Cons: It is not free, although for the amount of quality software and powerful features you are getting, it's an awesome deal.

Pros: As with most things from Atlassian, the price is perfect for small businesses or non-profits. Totally Free! This even includes the cloud offering. In addition, they are private repos. Few other services offer free private repos for groups. Integration into Jira software is super easy to set up and use. Looking forward to integrate into Bamboo as well.

Cons: It would be nice to be able to do merges in the service itself. You can do it if there isn't a conflict. But if there is, you need to go to an outside program. Not the worse thing, but not the best either. There are some confusing things about groups vs. teams that is not explained well in the documentation.

I used Bitbucket daily as part of a tech team in the marketing sector.

Pros: While Github seems to be more popular and more established, Bitbucket was able to serve the same needs and -- bonus -- we didn't have to pay extra for private repos.

Cons: The Bitbucket community isn't nearly as robust as that of Github, and the interface can sometimes be tricky to navigate if you're not familiar with it.

Overall: A very solid alternative to Github that offers free private repositories.

Pros: Reasonably priced with unlimited private repos. Good access control for individual projects and groups. Integrates well with JIRA. If you've been using GitHub, you know how to use Bitbucket.

Cons: Interface is typical Atlassian and can be difficult for new users to navigate. Audit log is not searchable.

Overall: It's less expensive for our team than GitHub and integrates well with our JIRA instance.

Pros: I am at my second company and it has been great to have version management software that require little had on work from myself. Git works great with the application and Jenkins integration has not failed me.

Cons: Sometime the search functionality has failed me. But it is a small part of the time I really do not have a con about this product. I heavily use it every day.

Overall: Make my life easy as the DevOps Managers. Version control. Code change review. Sign off.

Pros: I like the fact that private repositories can be created for free which makes it better than Github. The UI for Pull requests makes it much more better to spot file difference. Where i work, we use bitbucket for handling tasks (JIRA) and i don't need to create multiple accounts before using the different softwares they provide.

Cons: Bitbucket sends email for every activities in a Pull Request if you are the author or a reviewer. When am online and someone on my team comments on a code, bitbucket still sends me email despite the fact that am online. I regard it as spam. When am offline, it makes sense when i get an email notification but when am online, i already saw the comments so there is no point in the email notification

Overall: The following are the benefits.
1. Cheaper rate
2. Good functionality
3. Constant update to make the software seamless
4. I was able to track status of tasks.

Pros: One of the strengths of Bitbucket is its ease of use and its great integration with the Atlassian environment. In our company we integrated it with the JIRA incident handler and it worked very well.

With Bitbucket you can configure the permissions of each team member, this is of great help so that only authorized people can modify the most important branches of the project. It is also very easy to adapt the software to the company workflow.

By integrating it with JIRA, we can create a branch for each issue that must be handled by our development team. At the end of an incident you can create a "pull request" so that other team members can review the job.

It is an essential software for us and we recommend it extensively.

Cons: Although it sounds hard to believe, our team has not found a single negative point for Bitbucket. So far it has proved to work according to our expectations.

Perhaps we could say that for very large teams the costs rise very fast, so in some cases this can be considered as something negative.

Overall: It allowed us to organize the work of our development team, dividing each task into a different branch.

Our development team was able to work with GIT in a more intuitive way. The breakthrough curve for new employees also drastically decreased allowing them to adapt to our workflow more efficiently.

Pros: Both the hosted and self-hosted versions work great. Hosted was super simple to setup and administer. Self-hosted took a bit more work to get up and going but wasn't too bad.

Cons: Getting two factor authentication working with the hosted version of the software was more work than some of the other software that's out there.

Pros: BitBucket is really perfect for code reviews. Where GitHub offers only a flat list of changed files, BitBucket gives us the ability to review both the file structure and the changes in the files themselves.

Cons: No way to search a pull request by name and 2 GBytes limit for free licence are sometimes not enough for some projects where you want to keep a big amount of data, anyway this is acceptable for a free solution though.

Overall: Being used to maintain version control system and manage source code efficiently.

Cons: when there is an issue it is not very intuitive as to how to resolve the issue. I feel like I need to have the administrator involved more often then is reasonable.

Pros: The fact that it is free! Bitbucket is free for teams to use. It has nearly all the features that Github has and is great for small teams.

Cons: The interface is a bit outdated and sometimes navigating could be made easier. It is also difficult sometimes to see which branch you are looking at and to be able to switch between branches. Sometimes doing more advanced Git features through the interface is difficult.

Pros: Free account for small teams/startups with almost all benefits of standard version. You can start small and expand as you grow. Very attractive pricing plan and intuitive UI. Build in wiki and issue tracker, excellent user management and you can log in using your google account. You can chose between on premises (Bitbucket Server) and cloud version.

Cons: It's tool chain with JIRA (issues), Confluence (wiki), etc, is more advanced and powerful, but also more involved, unlike its main competitor GitHub, which is more simplistic but also easier to use.

Pros: BitBucket offers a similar service to GitHub with a different price structure and similar integration options. The area where BitBucket really stands out compared to its biggest competitor is code reviews. Where GitHub offers only a flat list of changed files, BitBucket gives us the ability to review both the file structure and the changes in the files themselves. The review portion is split into a left-hand file tree that can be used to navigate the Pull Request, and a right-hand diff view showing differences in the files selected. This results in a far superior experience when reviewing PR's with the team. Pricing structure can be more suitable for some teams, and if you're an Atlassian user then the integrations with their products is perfect. There is a large and growing number 3rd pary integrations.

Cons: As BitBucket has less community uptake compared to GitHub, one will be forced to use both. The interface for searching one's own repositories is cumbersome and unintuitive.

Pros: I've been most impressed with what's available at the free tier. I've run several personal projects using BitBucket because it was free and GitHub wasn't and I haven't had any trouble doing everything I need. It's really nice to have the option of a full SCM product for free.

Cons: I don't really have anything bad to say about BitBucket except that their deployment pipeline feature doesn't handle building .NET projects yet (only .NET Core on docker, last time I checked). This caused me to find another deployment product but overall not a big deal.

Pros: Bitbucket provides a straight-up clone of Github's most popular features (forks, pull-requests, etc), only it does so at zero cost for private projects. Ostensibly, this is a product intended to attract technology focused organizations towards it's flagship project-management product, JIRA.

Unscrupulous marketing schemes not-withstanding, Bitbucket is a solid tool that gives developers with no budget a great, accessibly online repository to visualize and share their code with the rest of their team.

Cons: While I do appreciate the seeming parity with some of Github's nomenclature, it feels a little gross to use a product that is such a brazen rip-off of IP. I still use it though¿  usually when I run out of private repos on Github.

Overall: Free software is good.

I feel it is better than Github for repository management.

Besides, Bitbucket offers all Git integration need to manage and store software projects.

Pros: (for academic users) free, unlimited users and private repositories

Cons: Not easy to get into unless you're tech savvy, but this is more the nature of repositories in general, and not BitBucket itself.

Overall: As far as the service goes, it's fantastic. If you're an academic user, it's basically like having unlimited free private Git repositories. It's a great way for pretty much anything where there are changes in versions and you want to track them and manage conflicts between multiple users.

However, it's not totally straightforward to get things set up and running if you're not moderately geeky and used to running in console. If you're a windows user and have never heard of cygwin, this is probably not for you. Have you ever heard of GitHub? If not, you probably won't feel comfortable getting this to work.

Comments: Bitbucket works well for private repositories, offering enough features for teams that want to track documentation and issues without requiring those features for teams that do not. Team permissions are easy to maintain at the project and branch level and there is very little friction when setting up a new repository.

The wiki is useful but somewhat limited. It is easy to link to pages that do not yet exist but Bitbucket does not indicate before clicking a link whether the page exists or not. It is easy to create a page that does not exist but would be convenient to see missing content at a glance to aid in review. It does not seem that Bitbucket is able to host public documentation on a per-project level either, at least not as easily as GitHub Pages.

Overall it works well and the pricing is fair for what Bitbucket offers.

Pros: Version Control, Able to host the server locally, Able to make changes and revert on the fly

Cons: Setup if you are using a local server

Overall: Our company started using bitbucket in-house over a year ago. It has helped with version control with the many websites that we maintain. You will have to do a little reading for setting up the software. We set up bitbucket server locally so we had to do a little digging to find out needed information.

After setup, the software works great. It keeps us from stepping on each other's toes when we have to work on the same project.

Price is excellent for a small team of 10. Fabulous. Since we are a non-profit company.

When I call customer support, they are always helpful (even if they didn't know the answer).

I would definitely buy bitbucket again.

Recommendations to other buyers: Have someone that knows what they are doing if you are setting up the server locally.

Pros: Fast and easy

Cons: When you clone a repo from the website it does not include the remote origin, you have to add it after cloning the repo.

Overall: For a very long time I'd been using bitbucket to host many important projects from the company, it provides a very nice set of functionality for teams working together on projects.

Also, the free tier is a very nice option it even provides web hooks for third party integrations with other services.

Pros: Its simple and reliable. we use git from the command line so we don't often use the web user interface, but when we do, its not a chore to figure out what we need to do in order to accomplish the task at hand. As a software development manager, I also appreciate how easy it is to manage access to repos for my teams.

Cons: viewing large number of branches could be a better experience.

Overall: when we were selecting a source control system for our startup we narrowed the short list down to three options: github, TFS for git and bitbucket. After evaluating all three, bitbucket was the obvious choice because it allowed us to simplify billing because we planned on using atlassian's jira. In terms of overall experience using the product we couldn't be happier - its fast and reliable. Since starting with bitbucket, we've expanded our use of atlassian products, which as a suite, is second to none in the software development management and productivity space.

Very useful free plan

Pros: Simple, easy to use, and good price

Cons: Since it's been purchased by Atlassian, they seem to be trying to add more features that are corporate oriented. Not really a "con" per-say, but they are adding more features that I don't really need.

Overall: Everyone may be jumping on the Github bandwagon, but we're addicted to Bitbucket. It has free unlimited private repositories for up to 5 team members. Deployment keys and bitbucket pipelines make this service the perfect solution for continuous integration and deployment.

Recommendations to other buyers: I trust these guys a lot more than Github, ever since Github had the security breach a while ago that allowed anyone to download any private repo, I won't put anything sensitive there. Bitbucket is the way to go!

Bitbucket is undervalued - perfect for bootstrapping startups.

Comments: I started using BitBucket when I stopped being a hobbyist using GitHub and started a Digital Agency. It's perfect for a small team just getting off their feet. The free tier plan is unmatched by competitors.

Pros: Git and Mercurial Support. Issue Tracker is great for client collaboration. Repository WIKIs

Cons: There is no way to automatically deploy your code in the free tier plan.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you need an excellent source control mechanism for a small team of developers, bitbucket is unrivaled.

Comments: Everything git related is top nosh. Only bad thing is that the ticket tracking that is baked in by default is pretty poor but then I guess if you want that you'd use Jira.

Pros: Easy, quick, amazing pricing (I have lots of private repos and pay nothin')!

Cons: Bug/Ticket reporting/tracking (but if you use Jira then no problem at all)

Recommendations to other buyers: Skip BitBuckets bug/ticket system and just go for Jira.

Comments: You can't beat this - you can have unlimited private repositories (if your team is a small one). Works great. I love the issues engine an the simple wiki, even though the wiki navigation is somewhat unintuitive the company's customer support is literally non-existent (I guess, it's there for paying customers)

Pros: Free, no downtimes, works great for small teams.

Cons: Some bugs stay unfixed FOREVER.

Recommendations to other buyers: Go for it if you have a small dev team and don't want to host your repos on-site. Simple issue-tracker, wiki, etc.

Comments: It is a very comprehensive tool, also offers a lot of integrated tools, like bugs control, a nice dashboard where you can see your projects and teams. Also, the best characteristic of Bitbucket, is that it let have private repositories without paid for them.

Pros: BitBucket is an awesome product that is a much more affordable alternative to GitHub. I like that they offer a gracious freemium model. Also once you sign up for a monthly account they give an unlimited number of private repos which is nice. On top of that BitBucket will integrate with all of the Atlassian Products and is really geared toward medium to enterprise sized companies. They've also got awesome documentation and support for first time users.

Cons: The initial setup of BitBucket on your desktop can sometime be a bit of a pain. It took me a little while to configure my first one and the documentation for setting it up on a mac was semi-buried. I've also run into load issues from time to tim on their site, I'll spend a few minutes waiting for my dashboard to full load. I occasionally run into time out issues while pushing or pull. However those issues have been less frequent lately.

Comments: Bitbucket is the best tool for code hosting and issue tracker for free. You can create repositories in the most popular version controls Git and Mercurial.

Pros: * Create Repos in Mercurial and Git * Integration with project management apps * Issue tracker integration * The free version is very powerful * You can share your projects with another users for a low cost.

not the best of the solutions out there, but tolerable

Comments: Used for managing source code between teams both in-house and at third party vendor sites. It's a generally OK implementation and covers most of what is out there. GitHub is definitely more up-to-date in terms of functionality and has a much better interface; however, Bitbucket comes with much better support as Atlassian is extremely good in that arena of their business. The big value add is that it is run by Atlassian. This gives it a much more professional appearance over GitHub making it easier to sell for use up the chain of command. It works, it's OK and if you're an Atlassian fanboy then it's the solution for you. I'd rather go with the professional services on GitHub, but this is definitely a viable solution for anyone out there.

Pros: - Simple - Gets the job done

Cons: - Not as up-to-date as GitHub - Interface leaves a lot to be desired
