Account has exceeded its user limit error but only 3 users in plan

I attempted to push code to our bitbucket account this morning but received the message:

"remote: [ALERT] Your push failed because the account 'xxxxxx' has exceeded its user limit and this repository is restricted to read-only access."

I was surprised to see this as no changes had been made to the account in some weeks (and indeed it was fine yesterday afternoon - approximately 17 hours ago).

I've logged into the account and can see only 3 users on the plan (settings -> users on plan). We're using the free plan which looks to allow 5 users so I guess there must be some users elsewhere which I can't see?

Can anyone tell me where else I should be looking or if this might not be user / plan related?

Thanks

I'm experiencing the same thing all of a sudden. As far as I know i'm only me 🤷‍♂️

I'm having the same error from today

I'm having the same error

Hi Edwin, I was experiencing the same error because the suite administrator in Bitbucket was changing the type of payment plan to free without informing the rest of the team.

 

Check it.

I am having the same problem. I have only 2 users still getting the user limit error. It is so ridiculous

Ana Retamal Atlassian Team Jan 24, 2019

Hi @Manoj, I've checked your account and I can see it's already at the limit. There're 5 users with access to your repos. You'll be able to see them at https://bitbucket.org/account/user/<username>/plan-users/ (make sure to replace <username> with your actual username). 

Let us know if you have any questions,

Ana

Hi Ana, 

Thank you very much for being so active in trying to solve this problem. At the moment I have the same problem, but the administrator of the bitbucket account has already eliminated the surplus of users (more than 5) and I still cannot push the repository. I wanted to know if the change takes some time to be reflected.

Hi there,

The change should be almost immediate @Diego Alberto Zabala Betancur

I've checked the affected account and I can see is well under the limit, so you shouldn't have any problem when pushing to the repository. Can you check again and let us know if the operation is successful?

Cheers,

Ana

@Ana Retamal We are using the Standard package but:

I had the same problem with a new user I was inviting, and removing the eccess users from the project did not help. I had to remove him from other repos in order to grant him access.

Having the same issue with 5 users only. I was able to extend the invite to the last user for one repository, but for second repo, it is showing the following error:

"The owner of this repository is already at their plan limit and will need to upgrade before adding more users."

The same issue with my account. Only three users.

I am experiencing the same issue since yesterday. We have only 3 users in the repo. And we've been using this repo for 2-3 months now with no prior issues. Does anybody know how to fix this?

We are getting the same error even though we are 5 people in the project.

Hi Atlassian, We´ve got a problem where we only have 2/3 user and when I try to accept my invitation, an error appears and this is it´s content, could you tell us what it´s wrong?

 

The same thing happens to us after upgrading the plan

Hi,

 

I have the same issue. There are 5 users in our account.

I'm not the owner. We upgraded the plan but still getting the same issue.

Can you please take a look at why it's happening?

Hi Atlassian,

 

Could you check the 'fris_dev' repository? I have 5 admins and the same 5 developers configured for bitbucket.
The 5th person still gets an error.

Welcome to the Community, ingbrzy!

I'm glad you could figure this one out :) If you need anything else, make sure to submit a new post and we'll be happy to help.

Have a nice weekend,

Hi, also have the same issue and I have 3 users, should have 5
How I know I have 3 user  https://bitbucket.org/<username>/profile/members. After reading all replies I did few steps
1. I open user access page for every repository https://bitbucket.org/<username>/<reponame>/admin/access

2. Remove all the users
3. Put all users in groups
4. Check members again https://bitbucket.org/<username>/profile/members.
Now I can add upto 5 user
Note: If same user exist in repository user and group may count 2 user, same for if user exist 2 repositories' user

Thanks

Hi Kamran, welcome to the Community.

I've checked your account and I can see you already reached the 5 user limit.

Keep in mind that the URL you shared is to see the number of members in a team, for indicidual accounts you should use this one: https://bitbucket.org/account/user/<username>/plan-users/ 

Regarding your note, I'm not sure I understand what you mean:

Note: If same user exist in repository user and group may count 2 user, same for if user exist 2 repositories' user

The user should only count as one, regardless of in how many groups or repositories he belongs. If you see a case where the same user is being counted multiple times, please let us know as we'll need to investigate that.

Hope that helps!

Ana

hi, also have the same issue and 3 users in the plan...

Ana Retamal Atlassian Team Mar 07, 2019

Hi @aleksandr_namanyuk , welcome to the Community!

I've checked your Bitbucket Cloud account and I could see you have 6 users, which is above the limit for the Free plan. If you don't want to upgrade, you'll need to remove one of them. You can do that from https://bitbucket.org/<username>/<reponame>/admin/access (remember to replace <username> and <reponame> with the real names). 

Let us know if you need further assistance.

Have a good day,

Ana

I had a few repos that were shared with others, and as soon as I removed them, it started working again.  

I don't have any repo shared with others. Still have this error.

Ana Retamal Atlassian Team Mar 04, 2019

Hi @Glenn Karlsen ! I've checked your account and indeed it is under the 5 user limit. Which repo are you trying to access when you get that message? Can you send us a screenhot?

Cheers!

Ana

I push the code with single user (owner) but same the issue.

Ana Retamal Atlassian Team Jan 25, 2019

Hi! Your personal account is under the limit as you said, however the account where you're trying to push is over the user limit -there are 6 users with access to repos on that account when the limit for the free plan is 5 users. If you have admin permissions on that account you'll need to go there and remove one of the existing users, otherwise you'll need to contact the admin. Alternatively, the plan will need to be upgraded to Standard. 

Hope that helps!

Ana

Hi, How can i remove the existing users? I am admin (have all bitbucket access). Even i try to push code using my admin account but same 402 error (exceeding user limits).Please guide me.

Regards; 

Ana Retamal Atlassian Team Mar 04, 2019

Hi @Xyno Web , sorry that I missed your question! Do you still need help with this?

If you want to remove users from your account, you can do it from https://bitbucket.org/<username>/<reponame>/admin/access (remember to replace <username> and <reponame> with the real names). 

Let us know if you need further assistance.

Have a good day,

Ana

Hi Ana,

I have a paid account $20.00 / month for 10 users. But I still face the user limit issue. Why is that so?

Please reply as we need to move forward ASAP!

Ana Retamal Atlassian Team Jun 23, 2019

Hi @anish__nair ,

I've checked your account and I could see you already have 10 users with access to your repositories. You can check this number by navigating to Settings > Users on plan. You can remove some of the users from there, or upgrade your plan if needed.

Let us know if you need any additional assistance!

Cheers,

Ana

Same problem here

Ana Retamal Atlassian Team Jan 25, 2019

Hi @ccarrascom, I've checked the Bitbucket account associated to your email address and I could see you're over the user limit -there are 7 users with access to your repos. You'll need to remove 2 of them. You'll be able to see them at https://bitbucket.org/account/user/<username>/plan-users/ (make sure to replace <username> with your actual username). 

Let us know if you have any questions,

Ana

it's fine when i change the repo url from https://xxx to git@xxxx

WHY ANYONE FROM SUPPORT IS NOT SOLVING THIS ISSUE. ?????????

I've tested with 2 accounts I have, and I'm getting the same issue.

I`m having the same issue, except my team account has 6 users and I've upgraded it yesterday to a standard plan. One of my colleagues received the error message while pushing. I did nothing but clicked on the "update" button and he managed to finish his push.

He only had this issue with a feature branch created in bitbucket. If he created the branch locally on SourceTree and then just finished the feature (without ever pushing his feature branch) and then pushed develop, he didn't get the error message.

My team account's name is archipelagus. 

I had a similar issue. Once I "updated" my billing details a second time after upgrading to the standard account it worked and I could commit. Either that or just trying to commit a second time fixed it. Not sure what went wrong. I'm using source tree.

Hi I'm having the same issue at work, we're just 2 users and when I try to make a push to the main repo, it saids the user limits error the account is GoKapitalDevelopers
