This is strongly based on php-github-api by KnpLabs. With this in mind, we now have very similar clients for:

This version supports PHP 7.4-8.3. To get started, simply require the project using Composer. You will also need to install packages that "provide" psr/http-client-implementation and psr/http-factory-implementation.

Standard Installation

$ composer require "bitbucket/client:^4.7" \
  "guzzlehttp/guzzle:^7.8" "http-interop/http-factory-guzzle:^1.2"

Framework Integration


$ composer require "graham-campbell/bitbucket:^10.4"

We are decoupled from any HTTP messaging client by using PSR-7, PSR-17, PSR-18, and HTTPlug. You can visit HTTPlug for library users to get more information about installing HTTPlug related packages. The framework integration graham-campbell/bitbucket is by Graham Campbell.


The main point of entry is the Bitbucket\Client class. Simply create a new instance of that, authenticate, and you're good to go! As of time of writing (Tuesday 29th June 2020), every endpoint (excluding issue export and import, and various deprecated endpoints) available on the Bitbucket API 2.0 is also available through this PHP client. We'd recommend looking through the Bitbucket documentation, and also the source code to get a full picture of what is available to use.


There are three ways to authenticate our client:

OAuth 2 Token

The most common way to authenticate is using an OAuth 2 token. You will need to generate this by some means outside of the library, and then provide it as below:

$client = new Bitbucket\Client();


HTTP Password

It is possible to login using a username and password combination. This method is not recommended for production use, however you may find it useful never the less:

$client = new Bitbucket\Client();


If you have two-factor authentication enabled on your account, then you must use an application password.

JSON Web Token

Finally, we support logging in using JSON web tokens (JWTs). This method is exclusively required by some of Bitbucket's API endpoints, such as the addons API. Generate your JWT, perahps using lcobucci/jwt, then provide it as below:

$client = new Bitbucket\Client();



In the following examples, $client will be an authenticated client, as above.

Example 1

It is possible to show basic information about the currently logged in user:

$currentUser = $client->currentUser()->show();

Example 2

It is possible to grab a repository as follows:

$repository = $client->repositories()

Example 3

We support automatic pagination without you having to lift a finger. The following example gets all branches of a repository:

$paginator = new Bitbucket\ResultPager($client);

$branchesClient = $client->repositories()

$branches = $paginator->fetchAll($branchesClient, 'list');


We will gladly receive issue reports and review and accept pull requests, in accordance with our code of conduct and contribution guidelines!
