Bitbucket/Stash References plugin is now called Bitbucket Linky

Bitbucket Linky plugin provides a handy ways to navigate to Atlassian Bitbucket. This plugin adds following actions into your IDE:

  • copy Bitbucket link to the selected file or selected lines in the file (Ctrl+Shift+X,C on Windows / Cmd+Shift+X,C on Mac)
  • open selected file or selected lines in the file in Bitbucket in your Browser (Ctrl+Shift+X,B on Windows / Cmd+Shift+X,B on Mac)
  • copy Bitbucket link to the selected commit (VCS log and editor gutter context menus)
  • open selected commit in Bitbucket in your Browser (VCS log and editor gutter context menus)
  • open Create pull request form in Bitbucket for current branch (Ctrl+Shift+X,P on Windows / Cmd+Shift+X,P on Mac)

Bitbucket Linky supports both Bitbucket Cloud and Bitbucket Server (formerly known as Stash).
The plugin uses your project's VCS settings (supports both Git and Mercurial) to build links to the repository in Bitbucket, and in most cases doesn't require configuration. However, if Bitbucket hosting is not automatically recognized, it can be configured via IDE preferences.

Bitbucket Linky uses Git integration and hg4idea plugins to integrate with Git and Mercurial, respectively. These plugins come with every JetBrains IDE, but you might need to enable them in order to use Bitbucket Linky actions. Both dependencies are optional though, so you can enable only one for the VCS you are using.


Huge thanks to Brent Plump and Piotr WilczyƄski!


Please note that this plugin is not officially supported by Atlassian.
