Hi @ekennedy80,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

To import a local repository this is what you need to do:

  1. Create a new repository in Bitbucket if you have not done so yet.
  2. Get the new URL for the repository by clicking Clone and copy the URL
  3. In your local repository, set the new remote URL by running this command:
    git remote add origin <repository URL>
  4. Push everything back to Bitbucket by running this command:
    git push -u origin master
