Hello Anatoliy,

Once you turn off the public access in Bitbucket the public access buttons will disappear on both level projects and  repositories. No one can check/uncheck this button even for the sysadmin users.

On the other hand for the users who need to share their repositories/projects they can grant the read permissions to the group that contains the whole list of your instance users.

Hello Anatoliy,

Please, have a look at as in Mac OS X, Git will attempt to use the OS X keychain to authenticate against a repository, so user will be able to push against a repository even without having access to it.

Kind regards,


Hello, thank you for information.

But our purpose is reduce from repository/project admins function - "enable public access" and in this time need give to SysAdmins capability to enable this function.

Like - Project Admin or Repository Admin - can't  change(enable/disable) public access in their project/repository. SysAdmins - Can change(enable/disable) public access in any repository/project.
