Hi Srinath, you can automate this by using the Bitbucket REST API, but you'll need to authenticate. The Bitbucket API grants access to public data without authentication, but access to private data requires the caller to authenticate under an account with the appropriate access. Adding or changing branch permissions requires project admin privileges.


You can find more information about the REST API at (if you're using Bitbucket Server) or (if you're using Bitbucket Cloud).

Hope that helps!
