Cannot push to Bitbucket repository

allanext I'm New Here Jun 17, 2022

I've just set up a ssh key to access my repository, I can pull but I can't push:


[ec2-user@wiki]$ git remote -v
11:17:08.491555 git.c:455 trace: built-in: git remote -v
origin (fetch)
origin (push)


[ec2-user@wiki]$  ssh -T

authenticated via ssh key.

You can use git to connect to Bitbucket. Shell access is disabled


When I do a pull i get:

[ec2-user@wiki]$ git pull

Hi @allanext and welcome to the community!

An access key provides read-only access to a repo. This is useful if you use e.g. a CI system that only needs to clone your repositories.

If you want to clone, pull and push to your repos via SSH, you will need to set up SSH keys for your Bitbucket account instead:

Instead of generating a new SSH key pair, you can remove your existing public key from the repository's Access keys and add it to your account here:

Kind regards,

Git push size limits are coming to Bitbucket Cloud starting April 4th, 2022

Beginning on April 4th, we will be implementing push limits. This means that your push cannot be completed if it is over 3.5 GB. If you do attempt to complete a push that is over 3.5 GB, it will fail...
