CodeStream 8.3 - GitLab & Bitbucket Authentication Simplifies Workflow

GitLab and Bitbucket users can now get right to work when signing into CodeStream. CodeStream 8.3 allows you to authenticate with either of those services in lieu of entering your email and new password. Just select "Sign Up with GitLab" or "Sign Up with Bitbucket" during signup.

CodeStream allows developers to request and perform code reviews from right inside their IDEs without breaking from development flow. You can review changes in the context of the full source tree, using your favorite keybindings and environment.

If you already have a CodeStream account, you can start signing in with either GitLab and Bitbucket as long as your email address on those services matches your CodeStream email address.

Authentication with GitLab or Bitbucket adds to CodeStream’s already extensive integrations with those services.

  • Create an issue on GitLab or Bitbucket, connected to a block of code, directly from CodeStream.
  • Create a pull request/merge request on GitLab or Bitbucket directly from CodeStream.
  • View pull request/merge request comments in CodeStream, alongside the blocks of code they refer to.

Check out our CodeStream for GitLab and CodeStream for Bitbucket videos for more information on these integrations.

Please note that even if you use either GitLab and Bitbucket to authenticate you can still use CodeStream for any Git-managed repo, whether it’s on GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, or any other code hosting service.
