Create a Bitbucket Cloud team
Bitbucket Cloud teams create an environment where people can collaborate on code in repositories to create amazing software. Understanding how teams work both conceptually and functionally will help you create better and more effective teams. The topics on this page will help you learn the basics of what a team is and how to create one.
What makes a team
To better understand how teams work let’s first take a look at how they fit into the Bitbucket environment.
|Teams are comprised of||Which are|
Who develops the code and manages the team.
Each user has an individual Bitbucket account which can be added to (or removed from) any group or team within the Bitbucket universe.
What users can do and where they can go.
Groups provide permissions (administrator, read/write, read only) to groups of individual users, and are assigned to repositories for the team.
Where the code lives.
The repository is where you store, access, create, develop, modify, and share the code for a project.
Creating a simple team
