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.

Create a team

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

  1. From Teams at the top, choose Create team.
  2. Fill in the available fields:
    1. Enter a Team name. This name is what you see in the teams navigation in Bitbucket and what your teammates see in invitations emails.
    2. Enter a Team 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, O Auth, account).

  3. Add additional team members by entering their Bitbucket username or an email address, and clicking Add.

  4. (Optional) Check the Administrator checkbox for any other users that you want to be team admins. If you do, Bitbucket will automatically add them to the Administrator user group, giving them permissions to update the team's settings, users, and repositories.
  5. Click Create.

Add members to your team

If you didn't add all the members you wanted to add during team creation, you can always go back and add more.

  1. Select your team from the Teams dropdown.
  2. Click Manage team in the top right corner.
  3. Choose a group the user should be part of. You can add a user to more than one group.
  4. Enter a Username or email address in the field provided.
    When you type in the field, the system attempts to auto complete the name for you. You can also enter the email address of a non-user, which sends an invitation to that person to create a Bitbucket account and join the team.
  5. Click 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.
  6. Repeat the last two steps for each user you want to add.

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. Select your team from the Teams dropdown.
  2. Click Manage team in the top right corner.
    If you want to open the settings of your account or a different team, you can change it from the Settings dropdown.

    The User groups page opens by default, but you can pick another settings page from the list of links on the left.

Check out these pages for more details on changes you can make from your team settings:
