How do I move a bitbucket repo from one project to another project in the same team

Seems like an obvious thing to do but I can't see how you do this on the web UI. We have created an Archive project and want to move archived repos to this project, how do I do this?

  1. Navigate to the repository you want to add to your project.
  2. Click Settings in the sidebar.
  3. Select the project from the Project menu, where you want to move the repository.
  4. Click Save repository details


Thanks for the prompt answer Kurt, and sorry for the delayed reply :( 

I discovered that I didn't have the authority on my teams account to make the changes, which explains why I couldn't figure it out. At least now I can tell my boss how to do it. 

Again thanks, much appreciated.

I have a lot of ptojects, but the UI is bugged, showing only 10 of them in dropdown.

What can I do if the project I need is not in the dropdown?

I also see this problem so I can't move my repositories to the project that I need to

I also created new project but in dropdown I cannot see it :(

Receiving the same issue, was anyone able to solve this? i.e. i'm also only seeing 10 projects in the dropdown

You are right. The pop up populates ONLY TEN projects.
SOLUTION: start typing inside the project field the name of the project you wish to move your repository to and it will show -;)

The same here, I can only see a limited amount of projects


this is very annoying and certainly if the project you have selected in PUBLIC instead of PRIVATE !!!!

The bug has just been corrected!

Still a bug.  I only see 1 of 3 projects.

@laourisis the correct answer. Click the drop down, and then start typing the name of the project you want to transfer to, it will start to populate with new results as you type

This is obviously a bug, was working before with no issues.

I'm also trying to move a repo from one project to another within the same workspace.


When I do add the new workspace ID "123" and clicking transfer nothing is happening in the destination project for accept transfer.

Still a problem ...
