Bitbucket integrates with external services (hooks) through a set of brokers that run in response to certain events. Brokers are Python scripts that receive information about an event and then take one or more actions. For example, there is a broker for sending emails, and another for posting the event to a given URL.
The Bitbucket team developed many of our brokers. Third-party vendors also develop brokers. If a third-party vendor develop a broker, they must submit it to Bitbucket for approval. You can also develop and submit your own broker.
