I think we need to be very clear on what people are thinking of as a "workspace".
Are we talking about the individual Bitbucket instances (i.e. running on different urls), or the project spaces in a single instance? If something else, then where exactly are you seeing the word "workspace"?
For me, this is the "workspace" not the project. The reason why I would need it is caused by the fact that Bitbucket doesn't support multilayer projects. If this would be possible it would solve the issue as well. What I would prefer to see is something similar to what gitlab calls the group functionality. There you can also build a kind of directory structure. Reason why we need this is as follows. We perform projects for multiple customers and each of them has several projects. So a 2 layer approach would already be a big help.
Now we try to achieve this functionality by creating a workspace for each customer and add the repos and projects to this workspace. This could be a solution but it seems we'll end up paying far to much for our bitbucket accounts. If we have 10 customer (and therefor 10 workspaces) and we have 5 users that have access to all off them we would pay for 5 users while we are using only 5. This doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
I hope this clarifies the issue.
I guess this is a separate bitbucket instance even if it is not intended by me that way. The are all managed by a single account but it is created using "Create workspace" and this is how you see it in the URL :
I hope this clarifies it.
Thanks. It's not what I hoped for but at least is clear.
Do you happen to know if there is any chance that multilevel (even 2 would do) will be possible in the foreseeable future?
This would allow us to easily group all projects for each customer and create a hierarchy like <customer>\<project><repo> so we would not end up with a huge pile of projects for different customers all on one level.
We can do this with Gitlab and we would like to be able to do something similar with bitbucket.
