Bitbucket Server Command Line Tools

Build Status

Installing this tool

This command line helper for Bitbucket Server is written in Ruby and is deployed as a Ruby Gem. Installation is easy, simply run the following command

$> gem install atlassian-stash

(Protip: you might need to sudo)

Once the gem is installed, the command stash will be in your $PATH

Configuration and usage

Run stash configure. This will prompt for details about your Bitbucket Server instance. If no password is provided, then you will be prompted for a password when executing commands to Bitbucket Server.

The global configuration file lives at $HOME/.stashconfig.yml and any options in a similarly named .stashconfig.yml file in the root of a git repository will take precedence.


There are currently two ways to store your password in the configuration file. You may store it as plain text with the key password, for example:

password: s3cre7

Or you may store a command string with the passwordeval key which allows you to use any encrypted method you like in order to store your password. For example, if using gpg:

passwordeval: gpg --no-tty --quiet --decrypt ~/.secret.gpg

The stash configure utility will not prompt you for this. If you wish to use passwordeval, omit a password during the configuration and add it to ~/.stashconfig.yml afterwards.

Creating a pull request

Use the pull-request command to create a pull request in Bitbucket Server. For example:

$> stash pull-request topicBranch master @michael
Create a pull request from branch 'topicBranch' into 'master' with 'michael' added as a reviewer

See the usage for command details

$> stash help pull-request

Opening the Bitbucket Server web UI

Use the browse command to open the Bitbucket Server UI for your repository in the browser.

$> stash browse -b develop
Open the browser at the Bitbucket Server repository page for the branch 'develop'

For more options, see the help

stash help browse

Configuration options

Running stash configure will prepopulate ~/.stashconfig.yml with a variety of options. Complete options are:

username: seb # username to connect to Bitbucket Server server.
password: s3cr3t # password for user. If ommitted, you will be prompted at the terminal when making a request to Bitbucket Server
stash_url: # fully qualified Bitbucket Server url
remote: upstream # Pull requests will be created in the Bitbucket Server repository specified by this remote
open: true # opens newly created pull requests in the browser
ssl_no_verify: true # do not check ssl certificates for the configured Bitbucket Server server


Q: I installed the gem, but the stash command doesn't work.
A: Do you have another command called stash or do you have an alias? Have a look where the command maps to

$> which -a stash

Then check the value of your $PATH
