Bitbucket Cloud


Checkmarx One supports Bitbucket integration, enabling automated scanning of your Bitbucket projects whenever the code is updated. Checkmarx One’s Bitbucket integration listens for Bitbucket commit events and uses a webhook to trigger Checkmarx scans when a push, or a pull request occurs. Once a scan is completed, the results can be viewed in Checkmarx One.

In addition, for pull requests, a comment is created in Bitbucket, which includes a scan summary, list of vulnerabilities and a link to view the scan results in Checkmarx One.


This integration supports both public and private git based repos.

The integration is done on a per project basis, with a specific Checkmarx One Project corresponding to a specific Bitbucket repo.


You can select several repos to create multiple integrations in a bulk action.


  • The source code for your project is hosted on a Bitbucket repo.

  • You have a Checkmarx One account and have credentials to log in to your account.

  • The Bitbucket user has admin privileges for this repository, see Code Repository Integrations

    • A separate Checkmarx One Project will be created for each repo that you import.
