How do I make a repository public?

Jacob Miller Atlassian Team Jan 21, 2018

I've unchecked "private repository" from the repo settings, but when I try and do a clone of it, it still asks me for a bitbucket username. How do I enable my repository to be cloned without requiring a bitbucket repo?

Hi Jacob, if the repo is public you shouldn't need a bitbucket account to clone it. Can you tell us the exact steps you're following?

You're welcome Jacob! Glad it's working now :)

Have a nice day,
