Hi Sumartono!

Seems like you're not creating your repository with the right name, keep in mind the name of the repository has to be, where you should replace "yourusername" with the username associated to your Bitbucket account.  

I hope this clarifies things for you, let us know how it goes! And if you need any further help please don't hesitate to contact us again :) 

Best regards,

Hello Ana,

I did changed my repo name

Still showing the same error message.


Ana Retamal Atlassian Team Nov 09, 2018

Hi! I've checked your Bitbucket account and I saw that 'myonlinereview' is not your username. To give you a hint I'll give you the first and last letter of your username: t******x.

Hope that helps!


thanks got it :)

Glad I could help! :D 

Hi @Ana Retamal ,

I've got the same issue.

My page is: I believe my username is sonnh84 too.

Could you help me check why it's not working please?

Thanks in advance!

The article at does not make this clear at all. Not only does the link for "workspace ID" lead to a 404, but the entire article seems to imply that creating a repository named (as an example) would simply work.

In my case, I want to host a static site for one of my projects. I don't want to host it under, but there's no explanation of why we can't do that, and "Repository not found" is not a particularly helpful message.

Change the repository name to:

Still no resolution. Seems like people would want to host a static site using bitbucket.

{username} needs to be your account username

Thanks. I get that is my username, but it still shows page not found. Which repo is this URL pulling from? 

if i remember correctly, the repos name has to be the same as your username. 

i.e account username: johndoe

repository name: johndoe

Ok. I guess I will try to rename my repo and relink stuff. It seems like Atlassian should have a simple online detailed explanation.

Apologies for any confusion caused by the documentation.

If your workspace ID is johndoe, do the following:

  1. Create a repository with the slug:
  2. Upload an index.html file in the root
  3. Visit the URL:

Where the fuck in your shitty documentation does it say that the repository has to have the same name as the FQDN


What a dumpster fire
