Verdaccio Module For User Auth Via Bitbucket

This module provides an engine for Verdaccio to make user authorizations via Bitbucket 2.0 API.


As simple as running:

$ npm install -g verdaccio-bitbucket


    allow: TeamOne(owner), TeamX(owner|collaborator|member), TeamZ
    ttl: 604800 # 7 days
    hashPassword: true
    cache: redis
        host: ''
        port: 6379
        prefix: 'verdaccio-bitbucket:'
    allow_access: TeamZ
    allow_publish: TeamOne, TeamX # restrict to bitbucket teams

Auth Config

Key Description Options Default value
allow Bitbucket teams which should be allowed to access the registry, separated by user groups and commas. For ex. TeamOne(owner), TeamX(owner collaborator member), TeamZ
ttl Time-to-live of cache (seconds). For ex. 604800 = 7 days {number} 604800
defaultMailDomain Specify a default domain for the username, For ex. "" {string} null
hashPassword When using cache, it will save the passwords hashed (highly recommended) {true false}
cache Caching engine to prevent re-accessing bitbucket servers. For Production usage and scaling, Redis is highly recommended redis in-memory
redis YAML Nested Map of options for Redis Client creation (look on the config sample). Read more YAML Nested Map
  • hashPassword option is currently not supported by verdaccio/verdaccio docker image, since it's running on Linux Alpine without the bcrypt required packages.

How does it work?

User provides a login/password which he uses to perform auth on Bitbucket. Verdaccio will grant access to the user only if he matches the teams and roles from the configured "allow" option.

This option provides a way to specify which teams and their roles should be authorized by Verdaccio. If team name is set without roles it would be treated as any role grants a successful sign in for the user. Controversial, if roles are specified within the team, Verdaccio will check if signed user has an appropriate role in the team.

After this it is becomes possible to configure team-based access to the packages as seen on config example above.

Logging In

To log in using NPM, run:

    npm adduser --registry  https://your.registry.local

Since the username for Bitbucket is the email addresses and cannot contain @, replace the @ with two periods .. The email address is then parsed and converted to a normal email address for authentication

Alternatively you can specify the defaultMailDomain configuration option, if most (or all) your users use the same mail provider or an own mail server. In this case the users have to provide only the local-part of there Bitbucket email address (the part before the @) as a username. It is still possible to override the default domain via the .. convention mentioned above.


Please be aware, that self-hosted "Bitbucket Server" are not supported. If you need support for Bitbucket Server please refer to verdaccio-bitbucket-server.

It is currently not supported adding Bitbucket user via npm command line. Maybe I will add this option in the future if there would be such need. If you want to help improve this module - feel free to contribute or do whatever you want. License is MIT, as usual.
