Bitbucket free account: how to enable 300+ repos?

Been using bitbucket for years. Recently crossed the 300 repo threshold, and now my API calls to create a new repo are returning with this message:

{"type": "error", "error": {"message": "Your account now has more than 300 repositories. Don't worry! You can still create more for free, but in order to prevent Bitbucket misuse, we need to hear from you at -"}}

So, what now? I've sent an email to support, but they've sent me here for community help. Is there anyone in the community with access to fix this?

Hi, @weightech! Welcome to the community! 

This limit is set to prevent abuse, requiring us to validate if it's an actual person with a real need for that. I went ahead and exempted your workspace, so you should be able to create more than 300 repositories now.

Please let me know how it goes and feel free to share any additional questions or concerns regarding this case. 

Kind regards,

That fixed it. Thanks!

Awesome, @weightech! Thanks for the confirmation! 

Hi, I have the same problem, what I need to do to enable more repos? Thanks!

Hi, Patricio! 

My suggestion would be that you create a separate question for your issue, providing details on the errors you see and also whether it concerns a Bitbucket Cloud or Bitbucket Server repo. 

Kind regards,
