How can I create a read-only deployment key?

I'm trying to create and use a project-level deployment key with read-only permissions as described in, but when I try to add keys to either a repository or a project, I'm not given the option to choose permission levels. Is that option gone and the documentation is stale, or do I need to flip some other switch to enable this option?

Here's what I see (compare to the images in the link above):

Hello @Pablo Diaz-Gutierrez ,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community.

The documentation you have listed is from Bitbucket server, and from what I could understand you are trying to set up access keys in Bitbucket Cloud.

If that is the case, in Bitbucket Cloud the ssh keys added as Access Keys in both the project and repository levels are already read-only, so you will not be presented with the option to choose between read/write, because only read permission is available at the moment.

Please allow me to share the access key documentation specifically Bitbucket Cloud:

Hope that helps to clarify your questions! Let me know if you have any doubt.

Thank you, @Pablo Diaz-Gutierrez .

Kind regards,

Patrik S

Oh, good catch. That's terrific then, exactly what I needed. Thanks!
