Configure automated builds with Bitbucket

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

If you’ve previously linked Docker Hub to your Bitbucket account, skip to Creating an Automated Build.

To set up an Automated Build of a repository on Bitbucket, you need to link your Docker Hub account to a Bitbucket account. This allows the registry to see your Bitbucket repositories.

To add, remove, or view your linked account, go to the Linked Accounts & Services section of your Hub profile Settings.


Then follow the onscreen instructions to authorize and link your Bitbucket account to Docker Hub. Once it is linked, you can create a Docker Hub repository from which to create the Automatic Build.

Create an Automated Build

You can create an Automated Build from any of your public or private Bitbucket repositories with a Dockerfile.

To get started, log in to Docker Hub and click the “Create ▼” menu item at the top right of the screen. Then select Create Automated Build.

Select the linked Bitbucket account, and then choose a repository to set up an Automated Build for.

The Bitbucket webhook

When you create an Automated Build in Docker Hub, a webhook is added to your Bitbucket repository automatically.

You can also manually add a webhook from your repository’s Settings page. Set the URL to, to be triggered for repository pushes.
