BitBucket Cloud: Project Permissions

In BitBucket cloud, how do I set permissions for a private project? Specifically I want to give groups permissions to an entire project and all repositories within, but the only project settings I have are the name, key, description and privacy settings.

Hi Alex, welcome to the Community!

Permissions can not be given on a per-project basis, permissions can only be applied on a per-repository basis.

What you could do is to create a group of users and set their permissions for the repositories that are contained within that project, this way whenever you add a new user or repo to that group all the permissions will be set at one 

For more info about this you can check Create and grant access to Team repositories.  

There's also a Feature request to implement this functionality, you can vote for it at site/master/issues/13202.

Hope that helps!


Hi Ana,

I have 150+ repositories and I would like to add a new group and allow it to access most of them. How can I achieve it without manually adding this group to each and every repository (would probably take a few hours of non-stop clicking)?

Thank you,
