For repositories stored on Bitbucket, the
bitbucket backend allows CMS users to log in directly with their Bitbucket account. Note that all users must have write access to your content repository for this to work.
To enable it:
- Follow the authentication provider setup steps in the Netlify docs.
Add the following lines to your Netlify CMS
backend: name: bitbucket repo: owner-name/repo-name # Path to your Bitbucket repository
With Bitbucket's Implicit Grant, users can authenticate with Bitbucket directly from the client. To do this:
- Follow the Atlassian docs to create an OAuth consumer. Make sure you allow
Repository/Writepermissions. To use the Editorial Workflow, allow
PullRequests/Writepermissions. For the Callback URL, enter the address where you access Netlify CMS, for example,
Bitbucket gives you a Key. Copy this Key and enter it in your Netlify CMS
config.ymlfile, along with the following settings:
backend: name: bitbucket repo: owner-name/repo-name branch: default auth_type: implicit app_id: # The Key from your Bitbucket settings
Warning: With Bitbucket implicit grant, the authentication is valid for 1 hour only. After that, the user has to login again, which can lead to data loss if the expiration occurs while content is being edited.
