How to remove users from Bitbucket Cloud, but keep all repos and settings of the user?

I have some users that have two access types on their accounts.  EX:  Group and repository show for a user.  I only want to remove users, but not any repos or any configurations they might have configured.

The best option is to deactivate the user. That's what I do when a developer leaves our company.

Bernard, thank you.   Deactivate from the admin/Atlassian console I assume?

Hello @Fernando Garcia . As from this Link , you cannot keep that info after you've deleted the account.

Abel, thank you for the information.

Hello @Fernando Garcia 

My name is @KaruguDev and i would like to assist you on this issue.

  • Login into your bitbucket page
  • Click on you avatar which is on your bottom left
  • Click on the respective workspace, your repositories are attached to
  • Then click on members, this will display all the members attached to the specific workspace.
  • Click manage users
  • click on the 'x' button display attached to each member to remove them.

I hope this helps and all the best

Send users button takes me to user groups where users are not listed (just groups) and therefore no "X" to remove them.

I've tried removing the member from all groups and repositories hoping that with no access the user would be removed. But that has not happened, the member I want to remove is still active. 

Can you help?

I'm with you Pedro. I too don't see any 'X' to remove a user. Are we missing something?

I think I just found it. If you go to "Users on plan", you then see the 'X' button.
