According to this article a user account could be given to a robot for Continuous Integration purposes.
The IT department created a new email account, this was used to login to the git repository, a ssh key was created, the public key added to bitbucket and finally the jenkins user was able to create commits in bitbucket.
As the email account is only used by the robot and the robot itself is not reading emails it feels that the email account is misused.
The question is whether it is possible to create a robot account in bitbucket without creating a new email account.
If there is no separate email account how could bitbucket deviate between the robot account and an existing real user? A unique email account should be used right?
