Bitbucket API 2.0 support with adding groups using REST API


I want to add some groups and permissions to my repo using REST API. I am able to create a repo under my team's project but in order to assign some groups having some difficulties. 

Do we have an endpoint to add groups and permission while creating a repo? 

curl -X POST \{team_name}/{repo_name} \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer ***************' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-H 'Postman-Token: 9ff******' \
-H 'cache-control: no-cache' \
-d '{"is_private" : "true","project": {"key": "{project_key"}, "groups": [{"name": "Administrators", "account_privilege": "Admin", "full_slug": "team-name:{team_name"}]}

I am able to create repo using above curl command but group is not getting added to newly created repo. Any suggestions? 

Here, "Administrator" is existed group and it has admin permission assigned. I just need to add this group in my repo creation process. How can I do this? 


Please suggest.

 Until the Atlassian platform services are fully available in Bitbucket we will continue to support these 1.0 REST endpoints:


Hope that's helpful!
