Hi, @Mazhar Imran _Student-PECS_! Welcome to the community! 

Just to give you some context, the academic license is linked to your email. The account must be registered with your academic institution email in order to receive this discount. So it’s not possible to transfer this academic license to another workspace that is not registered with your academic institution email.

However, you can transfer the repository ownership to the workspace that has the academic license (the transferred repository loses all access groups and doesn't inherit the destination account's default access groups. You'll have to set those on the repository after the transfer).

In order to transfer the repository ownership, you can follow the next steps:

  • Access the repository you want to transfer > click Repository settings in the left menu.

  • Select the option Manage repository > click Transfer repository.

  • Enter the Workspace ID of the workspace in which you want to transfer the repository.

  • Click Transfer. 

  • Then, Bitbucket will send an email to the new owner or workspace administrators containing the transfer request with a link to the page that allows the user to accept or reject the transfer. 

I hope this helps, but do let me know if you have any questions. 

Kind regards,


I have transferred the license to my other workspace. Seriously am impressed with your service like how fast you respond and solve the problem. Thankew so much bitbucket Team.
