Bitbucket Server and Data Center 7.8 release notes

✓ Rerun builds from Bitbucket

✓ Database password encryption

✓ Graceful shutdowns (Linux only)

Rerun builds from Bitbucket

With Bitbucket Server 7.4, Atlassian has introduced Integrated CI/CD. Designed to get from idea to production faster, it provides new ways to get continuous feedback on your code directly in Bitbucket, reducing the need to switch tools.

Starting with this release, you can re-run builds from Bitbucket. On the Builds page and the Builds pull request page, there is now an Actions column with a menu button for each build. From here you can start the actions authorisation process, and then you can re-run Bamboo plans and Jenkins jobs from this menu.

Database password encryption

To add an extra layer of security, you can now encrypt the database password, which is stored in the file. You can use one of the two encryption methods Atlassian offers in this version or create your own.

Graceful shutdowns (Linux only)

Bitbucket now supports an orderly shutdown through the SIGTERM signal. Performing an orderly shutdown allows Bitbucket to complete all scheduled tasks, ongoing Git requests and running user requests before exiting. This in turn helps prevent users from losing work during maintenance tasks that require a shutdown.

What else is new?

  • Atlassian has added JMX metrics for Integrated CI/CD build actions
  • The SSLv2Hello protocol has been removed from the default list of mail SSL/TLS protocols. For more details, see  BSERV-11889 – Bitbucket fails to send mail to Office365 when using Java 11 Closed
    If you require this protocol, then it can be reinstated by adding the following entry to the file:

    mail.crypto.protocols=SSLv2Hello TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2
