I'm running a public project on bitbucket. But its repository is owned by my team, not by me directly. If I try to import this project into my carrers profile using bitbucket link - I can't see the repository in the list for. That looks correct since I don't own this repo.

If I try to paste direct link to bitbucket project - I get use bitbucket import error message.

Question: is there any way to import this kind of repository?

  • I would really like this to be possible as well, I have several long running projects which I can't display from BitBucket because they are owned by the team not by myself

Yes, there is a way to import a team-owned bitbucket repository to your careers profile:

  1. Go to bitbucket and log in with your team account (not with your personal account).

  2. Make sure the repositories you're contributing to aren't private: under settings, "This is a private repository" needs to be un-checked.

  3. Go to your careers profile, click on "add or update: bitbucket"

  4. Select projects to import

  5. Make sure to go back to teambucket and log out your team account.

  • There is no team account in that team :) At least I didn't create account, didn't set password etc. But it is an idea, thanks, I'll try this week. Feb 3, 2013 at 16:16
  • Check with the rest of the team - someone should own the team account: confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/…

  • I just logged in with the Team Account to receive: After February 18, 2014, you'll need to log in using an individual user account with administrator access to manage this team. - confluence.atlassian.com/x/bII7Gg How would you do it then? Feb 10, 2014 at 22:06
