How do I find out who is the administrator of a Bitbucket repository

I have some repositories on Bitbucket that I haven't worked on for a while. They are private and, as far as I'm aware, I used to be the admin for them. I  need to give access to the person who is taking over the project form me, but I no longer get the cog icon that allows me to do this.

How do I find out who is administering this repository to restore my admin rights?

HI @Jacki Goldman

Select the repo which you want to find admin rights and at the left down corner you can find cog item (ie. settings ) and check selecting Access Management there you can find the Access related rights. 

The problem is, the cog icon does not appear for this repository. I haven't done any admin for it in absolutely ages, although I have been able to create branches, commit, etc. For some reason, my access has been changed from admin to write and I need to find out how to change it back.

ah, might be you could have been changed before some time 

how it is automatically changed....someone have done the changes in that.

If you are not an admin of the repo you will not see the cog ....

I used to use the addon for showing permissions - but it's not compatible with recent Bitbucket versions anymore

or else might be you have transfer/ change the repo ownership to another user or group.

Check the URL of repo you can find the User or group  name related to that repo.
