Create repository to an existing project using API 2.0 on Bitbucket Cloud

I am trying to create repositories and add them to specific projects by using:

 curl -X POST -u "${bcUser}:${bcPass}" "${workspace}/${repo_lower}" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '{"is_private": true, "language": "php", "project": {"key": '$project'}}'

But it is not considering the parameters passed. Just checked on the documentation:

And is_private, language and project don't seem to be part of the options specified. I am new on this, and I would like to be able to specify the privacy as well as moving the created repository to an existing project.

After creating the repository, I tried moving the repository to the existing project with the following command, but did not work either:

curl -X PUT -u "${bcUser}:${bcPass}" "${owner}/projects/${project}" \
-d '{"repositories": "${owner}/'${repo_lower}'"}'


I am working on Bitbucket Cloud. Thanks in advance

I'm answering myself in case somebody needs it ( I assume the URL needs to be the last one...):

curl -X POST -u "${bcUser}:${bcPass}" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '{ "scm": "git", "is_private": true, "project": {"key": "'${project}'"}}' \ "${owner}/${repo_lower}"

Thank you so much!

Works great after removing simple quotes in "'${project}'" => "${project}"
