Hi @Sangameshwar Sangaeshwar

Welcome to the community.

Based on the error message ID, it seems you can't rename the public repository because the project it's on is set as "private".

For this, you'll need to make sure your project setting is set to public.
You can check this by going to your project setting:

  1. Go to your workspace -
  2. Click Projects
  3. Click the project name
  4. Click Project settings
  5. Under Privacy, make sure "Private project" is unchecked

Also, to rename a repository, the below CURL command works for me.

curl -X PUT -u bb_username:app_password -H 'Content-Type: application/json' "" -d '{"name": "new_repo_name"}'

Here, you'll need to use your Bitbucket Cloud username and an App password

You can also check this documentation about it.

Hope it helps and let me know how it goes.
