Cloud Platform

Connecting an application to an external Git repo


If you want to use an external Git repository with Pipelines, you must first connect to your external Git repository. Pipelines supports integration with the following external repositories:

  • public and private repositories
  • Bitbucket Cloud public and private repositories


  • On-premise and Enterprise versions of GitHub and Bitbucket are unsupported.
  • Bitbucket no longer supports default workspaces. Therefore, you cannot connect new Bitbucket accounts to Pipelines. However, you can connect your existing Bitbucket accounts to Pipelines.


If you want to use the internal Git repository included with Cloud Platform, you do not have to complete this step to use Pipelines with your application, and can instead create your build definition file.

Follow these steps to connect your Cloud Platform subscription with your external Git repository, depending on what you use to store your repository:
