The day is finally here. After months of undeterred work, we are pleased to announce our community that QA touch is now integrated with Bitbucket.

Bitbucket is a web-based version control repository hosting service owned by Atlassian, for source code and development projects that use either Mercurial or Git revision control systems.

QA touch offers seamless integration with Bitbucket presenting the best way to keep all the bugs posted in the Bitbucket Repository. Bitbucket can be blended with QA touch in a short period, by following the underneath three steps:

  • Generate the APP Password (Personal Access Token) in Bitbucket.
  • Configure API Key of Bitbucket and the repository details.
  • Configure Bitbucket Settings.

App passwords are substitute passwords for a user account which you can use for scripts and integrating tools to avoid putting your real password into configuration files.
