Create a new repository by copying an existing one

Hi, I wanted to create a new repository by cloning an existing one but it ended up in error because it is the URL that contains https// and passwords are not supported by bitbucket any more. How can I do this instead? Do i need to create an App password for this?

Hello @Gergana Tanova


Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

As per the Bitbucket communication, Atlassian account passwords are deprecated for Bitbucket API calls and HTTPS git activity (clone, push, pull and fetch), and are being replaced by App Passwords.

App passwords are meant to substitute your real account password and are designed to be used for a specific purpose and limited permissions. They can be easily created and revoked when needed.

You can check more information about the App Password with this documentation. If you are using HTTPS, you need to create an app password. 

Please note that the command expects the username, not the email ID. You can get the username from your personal settings of Bitbucket. 

Alternatively, you may try authenticating using SSH keys 

I hope this helps.

Hi Karthick S,

Thank you for your answer!

@Karthick S I am not sure how it works exactly. I created an app password and then filled in my username and password when creating the new repository but it still cannot copy it. I get error message. 

    remote: Invalid credentials

    Authentication failed for '

    Remote Git clone failed: <class 'bitbucket.apps.asyncx.tasks.ImportException'>: Command failed. Return value: 128


Do you have any idea why it could be so? 


It was solved, you can disregard my last message.
