For turn on this feature need to set in  config file - feature.public.access = True.

But i dont want give for repository admins access to edit this field(public access)

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.

Hello @Anatoliy Borodin 

 We have similar requirement. Did you find any solution for the same ?

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 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.



when you set feature.public.access=false does this change the permissions of repo's/projects?
