Bitbucket Deployments

The Bitbucket Deployments extension allows you to deploy Rules and Database Connection scripts from Bitbucket to Auth0. You can configure a Bitbucket repository, keep all of your Rules and Database Connection scripts there, and have them automatically deployed to Auth0 whenever you push changes to your repository.

Configure the Extension

To install and configure this extension, click on the Bitbucket Deployments box in the list of provided extensions on the Extensions page of the Auth0 Management Dashboard. The Install Extension window will open.

Set the following configuration variables:

  • BITBUCKET_REPOSITORY: The repository from which you want to deploy your Rules and Database Connection scripts. This can be either a public or private repository
  • BITBUCKET_BRANCH: The branch the extension will monitor for changes
  • BITBUCKET_USER: The username used to access the Bitbucket account. Make sure you use the username, and not the email
  • BITBUCKET_PASSWORD: An app password you create through the Bitbucket settings to grant permissions to certain apps
  • SLACK_INCOMING_WEBHOOK: The Webhook URL for Slack used to notify you of successful and failed deployments

Once you have provided this information, click Install.

Navigate to the Extensions page and click on the Installed Extensions tab.

Click on the row for the Bitbucket Deployments extension. The first time you click on your installed extension, you will be asked to grant it to access your Bitbucket account. Once you agree, you will be directed to the Bitbucket Integration page.

The Configuration page will display the Payload URL you will need to create a webhook to your Bitbucket repository pointing to the extension.

Copy and paste this value into the Add Webhook page for your Bitbucket Repository.

You can find details on how to configure a webhook at Creating Webhooks on Bitbucket.


Once you have set up the webhook in Bitbucket using the provided information, you are ready to start committing to your repository.

With each commit you push to your configured Bitbucket repository, the webhook will call the extension to initiate a deployment if changes were made to the rules and/or the database-connection folders.

The Deploy button on the Deployments tab of the extension allows you to manually deploy the Rules and Database Connection scripts that you already have in your Bitbucket repository. This is useful if your repository already contains items that you want to deploy once you have set up the extension or if you have accidentally deleted some scripts in Auth0 and need to redeploy the latest version of your repository.

Full Deployment

To maintain a consistent state, the extension will always do a full deployment of the contents of these folders. Any rules or database connection scripts that exist in Auth0 but not in your GitHub repository will be deleted.

Deploy Database Connection Scripts

To deploy Database Connection scripts, you must first create a directory under database-connections. The name of the directory must match exactly the name of your database connection in Auth0. You can create as many directories as you have Database Connections.

Under the created directory, create one file for each script you want to use. The allowed scripts are:

  • get_user.js
  • create.js
  • verify.js
  • login.js
  • change_password.js
  • delete.js

For a generic Custom Database Connection, only the login.js script is required. If you enable the migration feature, you will also need to provide the get_user.js script.

You can find examples in the Auth0 Samples repository. While the samples were authored for GitHub, it will work for a Bitbucket integration as well.

Deploy Hosted Pages

The supported hosted pages are:

  • error_page
  • guardian_multifactor
  • login
  • password_reset

To deploy a page, you must create an HTML file under the pages directory of your Bitbucket repository. For each HTML page you need to create a JSON file (with the same name) that will be used to mark the page as enabled or disabled. For example, in order to deploy an error_page, you would create two files:


To enable the page the error_page.json would contain the following:

  "enabled": true

Deploy Rules

To deploy a rule, you must first create a JavaScript file under the rules directory of your Bitbucket repository. Each Rule must be in its own .js file.

For example, if you create the file rules/set-country.js, the extension will create a Rule in Auth0 with the name set-country.

If you plan to use source control integration for an existing account, first rename your Rules in Auth0 to match the name of the files you will be deploying to this directory.

You can mark rules as manual. In that case, the source control extension will not delete or update them. To mark a rule navigate to the Rules Configuration tab of the Bitbucket Integration page. Toggle the Manual Rule switch for the rules you want to mark as manual. Click Update Manual Rules to save your changes.

You can control the Rule order and status (enabled/disabled) by creating a JSON file with the same name as your JavaScript file. For this example, you would create a file named rules/set-country.json.


function (user, context, callback) {
  if (context.request.geoip) { = context.request.geoip.country_name;
  callback(null, user, context);


  "enabled": false,
  "order": 15,
  "stage": "login_success"

You can find a login_success example in the Auth0 Samples repository. While the sample was authored for GitHub, it will work for a Bitbucket integration as well.

Set Rule Order

To avoid conflicts, you are cannot set multiple Rules of the same order. However, you can create a JSON file for each rule, and within each file, assign a value for order. We suggest using number values that allow for reordering with less risk for conflict. For example, assign a value of 10 to the first Rule and 20 to the second Rule, rather than using values of 1 and 2, respectively).

Track Deployments

To track your deployments, navigate to the Extensions page, click on the row for the Bitbucket Deployments extension, and select the Deployments tab. You will see a list of all deployments.

If a deployment fails, you can examine the details of the deployment to determine why. Details are also available for successful deployments.

If you configured a Slack Incoming Webhook, you will be notified on Slack anytime a deployment occurs.
