Disable public repositories for a team

Is it possible to decline the creation of a public repository for a certain team? Right now, when you create a new repository, you have the ability to specifically create a public repository, even though it is private by default.

Hi Wim-Jan, if you're using Bitbucket Cloud, then it won't be possible. Whoever creates the repo will always have the option to make it public.  

If you're using Bitbucket Server, you might find this thread helpful.

Best regards,
