More details

Better Commit Policy checks the changes committed to Bitbucket repositories against a set of configurable rules (the commit policy). It does so by integrating the Better Commit Policy for Jira with Bitbucket. When the policy is not satisfied, the commit is rejected. Rejected commits can then be "fixed" and re-committed.



  • Improved change control over your source code
  • Easier compliance with regulations (story)
