Hi Laura and welcome to the community.

Based on the error in the screenshot, it looks that Bitbucket Cloud cannot reach your Bitbucket Server instance due to some issue with your proxy.

One possibility is that Bitbucket Cloud IPs are not whitelisted on your server or it could be because of some other configuration on your proxy.

You can check in this document which IPs you need to whitelist for Bitbucket Cloud, if necessary:

As a workaround, you can also migrate the repo the following way:

1. Take a mirror clone of the repo from Bitbucket Server


2. Create an empty repository in Bitbucket Cloud.

Make sure that the "Include .gitignore?" option in the "Create repository" page is set to "No" so that the repo is empty.

3. Then push from the mirror clone to the empty Bitbucket Cloud repo


Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

Kind regards,
