Let’s check how your team can benefit from using these solutions.

Confluence Hooks for Bitbucket

All software development products require some related documentation. If you are using Atlassian products for your software development, you need to check the Confluence Hooks for Bitbucket app. This useful app helps you link two processes: software development in Bitbucket and development of related technical documentation in Confluence.

Now you can make sure that your software documentation is created and discussed before you make any code changes. This app allows you to identify Confluence pages by a CQL rule checking any page properties base on the Page Properties macro.

You can define certain rules in Confluence for special use cases. If the app fails to find the related documentation in Confluence, users will see an error message and can get a hint how they can solve the problem. If a rule could not be successfully evaluated, the app prevents pushes or merges.

Now you can easily link two processes of software development mapping the workflow between Confluence and Bitbucket.

Pricing: Confluence Hooks for Bitbucket is free to use.

Advanced Admin Suite for Bitbucket

Advanced Admin Suite for Bitbucket is a powerful tool that can make Bitbucket administrator’s life easy. This app allows administrators to perform bulk operations both on projects and repositories.

Bitbucket administrators can easily detect inactive and empty projects without repositories. They can search repositories and projects by name, permissions, activity and hooks and swiftly change settings for them.

Administrators can easily perform activation of hooks for multiple repositories and change of access keys using this app. And all these and many more operations are available in five easy steps.

This solution saves Bitbucket administrators time completing their everyday tasks and helps them do more in less time.

Pull Request Review for Bitbucket

Pull Request Review for Bitbucket is a free plugin that provides Bitbucket users with an informative dashboard showing pull request statuses. Users can quickly change the status of their pull requests moving the cards on the dashboard from one column to another.

This app allows you to visualize the workflow of your pull requests. You just need to move your pull request to the In review status, when you start reviewing it. Pull requests get a special badge after approval. After PR is merged the card will be moved to the Done status automatically.
