How to delete a team permanently from Bitbucket

Manage account–>Select team–>Delete Team

But the deleted team is still visible in the teams list.And when we try to select the deleted team from teams its showing an error.

The deleted team should not be visible for me.Can I have a solution?

I am having the same issue. I have been ignoring it, but very annoying.

It may be a Bug with-in BitBucket.


  • User is on Team.
  • Team is deleted.
  • Somewhere in BitBucket the User is still tied to the Team.

Since the Team was deleted before the User was removed, BitBucket still thinks the Team should show up on the team dashboard.


  • User is on Team.
  • User is deleted from Team.
  • Team is empty.
  • Team is deleted.

My guess, "SCENARIO B" is what is suppose to happen.

I'm pretty sure the solution to this is to log out and log back in again to refresh the cached menu data.

Unfortunately, it isn't. It's 2019 and the problem still exists, log out/log in does not help.
