How to revoke access to repository to users and groups after sometime?

Dev Joshi I'm New Here Sep 23, 2022


I would like to know how to revoke all the access given to users and groups(except Admins) for a particular repository if that's possible.

This is a feature in GitLab which has expiration date field after which the access to that repository will be revoked for that particualar user. I would like to know if that can be mimicked in BitBucket or not

Hey Dev,

Welcome to the community.

It's pretty simple to revoke groups or user access for a specific repository. This can be done via the repository settings or under the Workspace group settings.

We have an existing KB for this at:

As for the expiring access grant, I believe Bitbucket doesn't have this option available yet but do let me know if you interested to raise a feature request I can help you with that.

Hello, Syahrul. Thank you for your prompt answer.

Yes, if this function is ever included into Bitbucket, I would love to have it because it satisfies the needs of our business. Could you kindly inform me how to create a feature request ticket?

Hi Dev,

Only Atlassian can create the feature request for now. 

Nevertheless, can you share with me what is your expectation and why this will help your business need?

Having this information would help me to build a good case for the feature request.
