Error when import / add a repository from one workspace to another in Bitbucket?


We need to clone repository from another company's. Since their repository isn't public one, I can't use "Add Existing Repository" feature.

So, here is what we did

1. I was invited to the other company's Bitbucket. I only gave my Bitbucket's username and email address to the other company.

2. One additional workspace shown on my Bitbucket workspace list, say this workspace's name is WKSP_A

3. I want to clone repo from WKSP_A to our existing WKSP_OWN. So I am at the project of WKSP_OWN

    a. click on "+" on left panel -> Import Repository

    b. Give the URL from repo at WKSP_A. The URL was copied from WKSP_A repo with syntax https://<my username><WKSP_A>/<repo name>.git

    c. Fill in my current workspace name WKSP_OWN, project name and repo name that I want in my WKSP_OWN

    d. click on "Import repository", below is the error msg. I am attaching the screenshot of the error msg as well.

(below is text version)

Are you trying to fork the repository or work directly on the repository?
