Get in touch with Sales for licensing questions.

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 Automation Widget allowing Submitters to add files to requests directly from the online repository.

  • Use Automated Project Creation (APC) to have Memsource automatically create new projects 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 Memsource monitor selected files for changes.

  • The Connector API can be used to automate steps otherwise performed manually through the UI. Webhooks can be used to have Memsource notify 3rd party systems about certain events (for example, a job status change).

Tip

If requirements are:

  • Limiting Memsource access to a single repository.

  • Using an SSH key for authentication.

  • Monitoring an entire subdirectory for a change in Automated Project Creation.

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

Use Git connector to connect to Bitbucket.

    If successful, the window/tab will disappear and a small checkmark appears next to the Connect to Bitbucket button.

    The connector is added to the list on the Connectors page.

If a default project, branch, and folder is required when connecting, open the connector configuration and click the Select Remote Folder button to set it.
