How do I find out the bitbucket team owner email address?

The situation:

  • I am a contractor.
  • Historically, I have admin rights to a repository on Bitbucket.
  • The repository is under a team that belongs to the company I work for.
  • The team is maxed out on user accounts, and cannot add new people. I get "'UserProfile' object has no attribute 'profile'", looks like BitBucket Issue #15312)
  • The company can't recall which email they used for creating the team (?!!! yeah, exactly).

I have a lot of things set up, including Jenkins CI, that are dependent on the repository and don't want to transfer or fork it, if at all possible.

I wonder if there is any way to recover the email associated with the team account? Or is it lost forever?

Hi Daniil! Team accounts no longer have email addresses associated to them, instead individual users use their email addresses to access the team. In this case you'll need to figure out who is (or are) the admin of the team, and this person will be able to do the changes and increase the plan if necessary. 

Do you think it will be possible for you to find that?

Let us know if you need any help :)
