Connect Two Imported Repositories


We recently moved from GHE to BitBucket. Our DevOps team imported the Upstream repo into BitBucket. We use a Fork and Pull model, so I had a personal fork of that Repo in GHE. Now when we moved to BitBucket, I imported my personal fork from GHE into BitBucket.

So, this is where we stand now,

Upstream Repo in BitBucket

My personal fork imported into BitBucket

Now, when I create a pull request from a branch in my personal repo, I am unable to specify the Upstream repo on the Create Pull Request screen. I know one solution is to not import my personal repo but fork from the imported Upstream repo; but I am also curious to find out whether we can create this workflow connection/mapping, where two imported repos can be connected in such a way that one is recognized as a fork of the other. Also, I have a bunch of unmerged WIP branches on my old personal fork.

Thanks, and looking forward to the answer.
