Delete a repository

The repository owner and repository admins can delete a repository. The owner is the account that created the repository. Deleting a repository permanently removes it from Bitbucket Cloud. As a consequence, any URL referencing this repository no longer works. To delete a repository:

  1. Log into your Bitbucket account.
  2. Navigate to the repository you want to delete.
  3. Click the repository's  settings icon.
  4. Choose Delete Repository from the left-hand navigation.
    The system displays the deletion dialog.

  5. (Optional) Enter a URL in the Redirect to field.
    Future users who try to access your repository are sent to this new URL.
  6. Press Delete repository.

Removing a Redirect

Right now, there is no way to edit or remove an existing redirect. The current work around is to create a new repository with the same name as the one which you redirected. Then, delete this new repository without providing a redirect URL. Alternatively, you can speciy a new URL for redirect.
