Configuring traceability from work items to commits in Bitbucket

You can configure post-receive hooks in a Git repository in Bitbucket to enable linking of Git commits to IBM® Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) work items.

Before you begin

Make sure that you have completed the tasks described in Configuring the basic integration with Bitbucket.

About this task

A shared user base (such as a common LDAP) between EWM and Bitbucket server is optional for linking Git commits to work items through post-receive hooks. A best practice is to add an EWM functional user ID to the post-receive hook if a shared user base does not exist between EWM and Bitbucket server. Ensure that the functional user is authorized for Git requests.

You must deploy a post-receive hook for each Git repository to link commits in that repository to EWM work items.

You must register every Git repository with EWM and configure the Git repository with EWM-specific configuration variables to enable linking of Git commits in that repository to EWM work items.
