Getting Started with Bitbucket-2019

If you have worked with any major version control system say github, gitlab, then working with any other is just a formality. Because all of them are indeed pretty similar, but yes they do offer slight variation among the features and same case is with the Atlassian Bitbucket.So, here is the only guide you need to get started with Bitbucket version control System. So, what are we waiting for, lets get started!!!

Why Bitbucket?

Bitbucket offers the best free plan among all the major version control system out there with unlimited free private repositories upto team of 5 members. So, You can grant access to your repository for commit, merge etc to upto team of 5 people. The access sharing screen would be shown just below. Apart from that Bitbucket supports all the basic code integration features that version control system promises and yes, bitbucket too  supports the cool new thing in VCS space PIPELINES!!

Bitbucket Tour

This is how the bitbucket dashboard would look. All the repositories would be shown here, which could be both private or shared.

This is the branch dashboard. Here you can create, delete, merge the branch to the master.Since, bitbucket  offers pipelines support, a pipeline could be attached to the branch as well.


Now, this is the main screen. Settings where you grant access to 5 people the repository and grant read/write/admin access. Here is the concept of shared repository that comes into the picture.

This hands down is the favorite screen of a devOps engineer. On the left you can see before author, branches are being merged to show the trajectory of the project so who committed and then that branch merged into which branch which ultimately merged onto the master. Under commits when you click you would be redirected to page showing log of all the changes you did in diff format which is pretty awesome!

Hope, it would have brought lot more clarity from where you started. If you still have an any doubt, leave it in the comment section below. Our team would revert back within 24 hours.
