Create and administer your team

Create a Bitbucket Cloud team if you're working with at least one other person. To create or join a team, you need an individual Bitbucket account.

Whoever creates the team automatically has administrative access. That user can also specify admin access for other team members, giving them the ability to administer the team. Any admin can update the team's plan and credit card details.

Create a team

Any user can create a new team and will automatically become a team member and administrator.

  1. Click + in the global sidebar and select Team under Create a new.
  2. Enter a Team name. This name is what you see in the teams navigation in Bitbucket and what your teammates see in invitations emails.
  3. Enter a Workspace ID. Your ID can't have any spaces or special characters, but numbers and capital letters are fine. This ID becomes part of the URL for the team and anywhere else where there is a label that identifies the team (API's, permission groups, OAuth, etc.).

  4. Click Done.

Add members to your team

Once you've got a team, you can start adding other users as members.

  1. From your avatar in the bottom left, select your team or click View all teams for a full list.
  2. Click Settings in the sidebar, and then select User groups.
  3. Select a group where you want to add users. You can add users to more than one group.
  4. Enter an email address in the field provided.
    Entering the email address of a non-user sends an invitation to that person to create a Bitbucket account and join the team.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Repeat the last two steps for each user you want to add.

If you entered an email address and it has a corresponding Bitbucket account, the system resolves the account for you. If Bitbucket couldn't resolve the address, it sends the user an invitation to join the team by creating a Bitbucket account.

Update your team's settings

You can update your team's settings only if you have administrative permissions. If you think you should have admin permissions, ask another administrator to grant you access. If you have admin permission, find your team settings with the following steps:

  1. From your avatar in the bottom left, select your team or click View all teams for a full list.
  2. Click Settings in the left sidebar.
    The Team settings page opens by default, but you can pick another settings page from the list of links on the left.
