Both individual accounts and teams can use groups to manage access to repositories. Teams also use groups to grant members rights, to create repositories, and to administer the team. Groups consist of one or more members all of which must have a Bitbucket Cloud individual account.
This page contains the following topics:
Groups Management Controls: individual account
To manage groups, regardless of the account type, go to the Manage page (avatar > Bitbucket settings) and choose User groups. The Groups page for an individual account has the following controls: (1) repository access, (2) Edit or remove a group, (3) member list; click on a user name to go to their home page, (4) remove user from group; click the x symbol to remove that member from the group. Go here to see the controls for a team.
Managing Group Access to Repositories
You use Groups to grant several users access to the repositories associated with an account. To control access You set the value:
have permission access to this account's repositories
If you set no access (no), none of the group members have no access to an account's repositories. Alternatively, you can set any of the following default permissions levels:
|Level||This permissions allows a user to do the following:|
|read||View, clone, and fork the repository code. All public repositories grant all Bitbucket Cloud users read permissions automatically. Read access on a repository also allows users to create issues, comment on issues, and edit wiki pages.|
|write||Contribute to the repository by pushing changes directly from a repository on a local machine.|
|admin||Can do everything a repository owner can do. This means administrators can:
When you create a repository on an account, Bitbucket determines if the account has any groups with a default permissions (read, write, or admin) assigned. If it does, Bitbucket adds those groups to the new repository with the default permission. If you specify no default permissions, Bitbucket ignores that group and does not add it. If you add a new group at the account level, all existing repositories receive the new group automatically.
Changing a group's permission at the account-level causes Bitbucket to change the permissions for that group on all an account's repositories. Repository administrators can prevent this change by setting repository-specific settings. See Granting Users Access to a Repository for more information.
Keep in mind the group permission applies to all members. If you give a group administrator permission to your repository, any group member can administer the repository through its Admin tab. If you are concerned about inadvertently giving users access to your repositories, always specify no default group permissions.
Bitbucket Cloud allows you to add a team to a group or directly to a repository. Adding a team to a group does not give the individual team members access. It has no effect; the ability to do this is a bug.
