Personal and managed Atlassian accounts
Until recently, all Atlassian accounts existed as personal accounts, managed by you. It might not seem that way because someone probably added you as a user and manages all the things you can access. However, you manage the account itself as an individual user when you have a personal account.
To give your organization more control over the security of your account, we've introduced a way for your administrator to claim your site's domain and manage your account. Your organization can ensure you have to conform to authentication policies, such as a password policy and (in the future) two-step verification. Once your organization claims your site's domain, your Atlassian account is now a managed account.
Here's what you do and don't have control over with a personal vs. a managed account.

When you have a personal account, only you can update your account details, not your administrator. When you have a managed account, you need to contact your administrator to change your email address.
To check whether you have a personal or managed account:
Log in to your site at https://id.atlassian.com/. If you see a message under your email address telling you that the name of your organization manages your account, then it is managed. If there's no note, you still have a personal account that you can manage yourself.
To move personal content in Bitbucket for a managed account:
You probably want to keep your personal Bitbucket repositories separate from the account you use for work. Here's what we suggest to do:
- Create a new Atlassian account for your personal repositories.
- Add the user associated with your new account to your personal repositories and add that user to the Administrators group.
- Remove your organization's Atlassian account from your personal repositories.
