How to skip the "14-day grace period" on a deleted account?

I accidentally created a bitbucket account for my new corporate email, what I really wanted to do was to add this email as an alias of my actual bitbucket account. So I deleted the accidental account and tried to add the email as an Alias, but since there is this "14-day grace period" I can't. I am positively sure that I don't want that empty account, but I really need to add the email as an alias since all corporate repositories are being shared with my through this new email.

Hi Bernardo, welcome to the Community!

It's not possible to skip those 14 days, you'll need to wait before being able to delete the account. 

However, note that your colleagues won't be able to share their repositories with you even if you add that email as an alias, repositories can only be shared with a primary account, so you'll need to make this email the primary one. The purpose of email aliases is to help you track commits from any other email address not part of your Atlassian account. 

Let us know if you have any other questions!


Hi, Ana,

I'm having a related issue.

I've deleted a previous account, the grace period has ended, but I still cannot add the email from this previous account as an alias. I keep getting the "... is already in use by another user.".

Any thoughts on how could I get this done?
