Disable projects in bitbucket workspace


I was reading trough the following resources page:
and under the section"Create a Project" it states the following (emphasis mine)

Every workspace that has projects enabled will have an initial untitled project which contains all the workspace's repositories.

This seems to imply that there is a way to disable projects in the workspace. But i can't seem to find the option to do so in any of the settings menus.

Could someone point me to the location of this option?
Or is the documentation outdated and is it not possible anymore to turn off projects?

Thanks in advance,

Hi, @Stijn! Welcome to the community! 

Indeed, this documentation is outdated and it’s not possible to turn off projects, just delete them after removing the repositories under the project.

Thank you for reporting this to us, we really appreciate that. I have created a ticket with the team the manages our documentation to update this information.

Please, feel free to share any additional questions regarding this subject.

Kind regards,
