Kore.ai provides integration for a built-in Bitbucket Bot that you can use to display message notifications and execute tasks directly from your messaging channel such as Kore.ai Messenger. To use the Bitbucket Bot, you just need to add the Bot to your channel and then configure the settings for the Bot, such as authentication to access Bitbucket and the notification messages that you want. For more information about other Kore.ai Bots, see Adding Bots

To configure a Bitbucket webhook for Kore.ai, you must have a Bitbucket account with administrator access as well as API access to configure a webhook. If you don’t, you’ll need to contact the Bitbucket system administrator for your company. For more information, see the Bitbucket Cloud Documentation Home.
To get started configuring the webhook in Bitbucket, you’ll need two things:
- The Kore.ai webhook URL provided when you set up an alert in your messaging channel for each alert that you want to enable in Bitbucket.
- A valid Username and Password for an account with Bitbucket API access.
The webhook URL is account-specific and cannot be transferred to any other account. This means that if you configure a Bitbucket webhook using a test account, you will have to recreate the alert and get a new webhook URL to configure in Bitbucket. The following URL is an example webhook URL.
