Github provides this fork feature which lets user fork another person's repository to our own account which is like an independent copy of the repository. When we want to push code changes to the original repository, we can create a PR to merge our fork changes to the original repository. Unfortunately, I cannot find this feature with bitbucket.
Hi there, welcome to the Community!
Bitbucket also provides the 'fork' option, you can achieve it by following the steps.
In the Fork dialog, define the options for your fork.
You can learn more about this feature at Forking a repository.
Don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.
To give you the best guidance we'll need to know what are you trying to achieve. Do you just want a copy of the repository on your local machine (clone)? Or do you want a fork of the original repository, just not using the Bitbucket UI?
For the first case, you can achieve that just by using Git on your terminal. You can learn how in the documentation.
For the second case, you can do a fork the repository using the REST API, as documented at https://developer.atlassian.com/bitbucket/api/2/reference/resource/repositories/%7Busername%7D/%7Brepo_slug%7D/forks.
Hope that helps!
