In Bitbucket Server, I know there's a way to move repos from one project to another existing project. But is there a way to copy the repo to another existing project? It would preserve the old repo while making newer changes to the copy.
Hi @Kevin Thomas,
As of Bitbucket Server 4.9, we provide a repository import feature. You could use this to copy one repository into another project.
Hope this is what you're looking for,

Problem is, we have about 30 repos in one project. We're recompiling them to a newer framework and keeping track of them in a new project. If there's an easy way to do it through the interface itself, I'd rather do that.
"Why don't you just recompile them and push them back to the original repositories, maybe tag the commits or create a branch?" I wish I made the rules...but our team wants access to both sets of code.
As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
