How do I add the Pipelines option to a repo where I am an Admin but not the Owner? Edited

I'm on the verge of experimenting with pipeline on my own repos, but I have pressing need to use it for a client's repo, to push updates to the development server.

However I can't find the Pipelines menu option in their repo settings. 

Is this something that they need to opt in to? Or is it there but hidden from me?

Hi Dan,

You should be able to enable or disable pipelines on a repository for which you have admin access as long as they have pipelines installed. You should be able to do this yourself by finding the pipelines icon in the sidebar and visiting that page. If this doesn't work get them to perform those same actions.

If none of this works can you raise a support ticket at so we can have a closer look at exactly what could be going wrong.



Hi Tom.

Thanks for your reply.

I asked the client to Enable (install) Pipelines, and I now have access.

I could not find the pipeline icon to do the enabling/installation myself, in either the new or old Bitbucket navigation, which suggests that only the client has permission to do this.
