Mirroring a Bitbucket Repository

This topic describes how to mirror a Bitbucket repository to Cloud Source Repositories. With this configuration, commits that you push to the Bitbucket repository are copied, or mirrored, into a repository hosted in Cloud Source Repositories.

Before you begin

When you mirror a repository, you must provide Bitbucket authentication credentials. These credentials allow Cloud Source Repositories to access the contents of the Bitbucket repository.

It is recommended that you create a Bitbucket account that is specifically dedicated to automated tasks, such as mirroring a repository.
