Can I change bitbucket profile public url(eg: https://bitbucket.org/%username%/) after creation?

Deleted user Oct 29, 2020

Are there any possibility to keep in sync username within an account with "username" in account public url(eg: eg: https://bitbucket.org/%USERNAME%/). 
For example: after changing username from "Account settings" page(https://bitbucket.org/account/settings/) the username in url stays the same. 

Unfortunately documentation(https://support.atlassian.com/bitbucket-cloud/docs/update-your-username/) also doesn't contain this case. 

Are there any other possibilities to change this url path?

Consider next case:
A person can have more than 1 accounts with the same email's "path", but different domains(eg: user1@domain1.com, user1@domain2.com).

So after creation of first account(user1@domain1.com) the url of https://bitbucket.org/user1 won't be valid for replacement by second account, even after the first account was deleted from atlassian's account preferences page(https://id.atlassian.com/manage-profile/account-preferences).

Test it to prove this. It was reproduced with my account, though not after the removal rejection period(what could be the reason, isn't it?)

Thanks in advance for answer!

Hello,

What you see in the URL is the workspace ID and not the username, this is why changing the username has no effect on the URL.

In order to change the workspace ID:

  1. Log in to https://bitbucket.org/
  2. Go to your avatar (bottom left corner) >> All workspaces
  3. Select the workspace whose ID you want to change
  4. Afterwards, select Settings from the left hand column
  5. The new page that opens shows the Workspace ID, and next to it there is a link with the option to change it

Every Bitbucket account can own or be a member of multiple workspaces, so the workspace ID is separate from the username and there's no sync between the two.

If you'd like to read more info on workspaces, you can check here:

The workspace ID must be unique across all other workspace IDs AND usernames in the platform.

If e.g. user1 is already used either as a username or as a workspace ID or both, then I'm afraid you cannot create a workspace with this ID.

Regarding your example with account deletion, the 14-day grace period must pass in order for the account and workspace to get deleted and for you to be able to use user1 as a workspace ID or username.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any other questions!

Kind regards,
Theodora
