How to move a repo from one Bitbucket cloud organization to another?

I have a couple of different Bitbucket Cloud organizations: one that I used when we were first setting up our cloud infrastructure two years ago; and one that we use now, in production. We can call them and

I have a repository in that I want to move to, so that I can discontinue using What's the best way to do that?

(Note that I will need to keep the version in for a few months, for LTS reasons. So maybe "copy" is a better word than "move".)

Hey @Ray Depew 


I believe the best approach would be to import the repository using the importer.

This will basically do a clone of your repository in another Workspace. However, do note that it will only transfer your repository and not the metadata such as PR, settings, and pipeline.


Hello Syahrul,

Thank you for the quick reply! Unfortunately, the import had an issue of its own. Here is the log:

I tried it first with "Requires authorization" disabled. Then I tried it with "Requires authorization" enabled, and my username and password entered, but it still failed.

We do have 2FA enabled on our corporate accounts, and I believe we have SSO enabled as well. Might those be getting in the way somehow?

Hey @Ray Depew 


I believe you need to use App Passwords with Require authorization option enabled since we no longer allow users to use Account passwords for git and HTTPS.

Let me know if that works.

App passwords! I should have remembered that! Thanks for the reminder. I entered an app password and it worked immediately.

Thank you for your help.
