Connecting Bitbucket allows you to work on your websites locally and have the changes sync to CloudCannon. File changes made on CloudCannon also get synced back to Bitbucket.

To connect a Bitbucket repository and start syncing files, follow these instructions:

  1. Go to Site Settings / Source Syncing
  2. Select Bitbucket repository
  3. Click Authenticate
Selecting Bitbucket as your source provider

This redirects you to Bitbucket. Log in and authorize CloudCannon access to your Bitbucket account. You'll be redirected back to CloudCannon to pick a repository to connect. If you don't have one for this website, create a new one in Bitbucket and refresh this page.

Selecting your Bitbucket repository to sync

Any existing files on your website will be replaced with the contents of the selected repository. Click Backup and Sync to continue, or exit the page to cancel the process.

Bitbucket is now connected. Changes you push to the Git repository are pulled in by CloudCannon. Any changes made on CloudCannon are automatically committed and pushed.
