Hi Shweta,

Atlassian doesn't have a tool for bulk import, but there is a tool for importing one repository at a time, as Aron suggested.

The importer works with any Git-based hosting site, see here:

If your self-hosted GitLab instance is behind a firewall and not accessible from the internet, you will need to whitelist Bitbucket Cloud's IPs for the import to work. You can find the IPs here, section Valid IP addresses for,, and

If the repos are not public, you will need to provide in the Import page the credentials that you would use to clone the repos via HTTPS.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Maybe the best way to do this is a 2-step migration:

  1. From GitLab Self-managed to GitLab Cloud:
  2. From GitLab Cloud to Bitbucket Cloud:

Both steps are documented and supported, so I guess even with the 2 steps it is a "safe bet".
