Set permissions for team members

User groups allow you to specify the type of permissions you want to give group members for newly created repositories and for the team.

When you create a team, Bitbucket automatically creates two user groups: Administrators and Developers. All team members start out in the Developers group. The users in the Administrators group are whoever you specified as an admin during team creation.

From the User groups page, click Add group. Update the fields on the screen and click Add to save the group.

A. Name

Describes the type of users this group will include.

B. Default repository access

Specifies the group's default access when the team has a new repository:
  • Admin – Allows users to do everything a repository owner can do: change repository settings, update user permissions, and delete the repository.
  • Write – Allows users to contribute to the repository by pushing changes directly.
  • Read – Allows users to view, clone, and fork the repository code but not push changes. Read access also allows users to create issues, comment on issues, and edit wiki pages.
  • None – Prevents those users from seeing anything in the repository.
C. Team permissionsSpecifies what the group's users can do with the team account:
  • Create repositories – Allows team members to create new repositories for the team.
  • Administer team – Allows team members to update the team's settings and the settings of any team-owned repositories.
D. Admin notifications(If this group has admin access) Specifies whether the groups's users will receive team notifications. You'll only be able to select this option if you also selected the Administer team permission.

When you click Add, the page for that group opens so that you can add users. Enter the user's name or email address and click Add. If you enter the email address of a non-user, that person receives an invitation to create an Atlassian account and join the team.

After you create a group, click Edit to update group permissions.
