How to view repositories in shared workspace via Codepipeline and CodeStar in AWS?


Problem: My Bitbucket codestar connection cannot see or use repos in workspaces I do not own/have admin in.

I am working on a repository (repo A) in Workspace A, I do not own workspace A. Workspace A is part of the organization I work for and they manage it, so I do not have admin in it.

I have created a CodeStar App connection using my BitBucket login and I cannot use the repository (repo A) as a source. Is there any valid workarounds besides being elevated to Admin on the Workspace (workspace A)? I'm an Admin for Repo A.

I have tested my buildspec/code/CodeStar Connection as I tested a repository (repo B) in Workspace B, which I "own". It works just fine. So I suspect there's some access rights here that are not playing nicely.

Hi @Kent Wong

Welcome to the community.

Unfortunately, you'll need to be an admin of a workspace before you can load Bitbucket Cloud repositories from it in CodeStar.
Alternatively, what you can do is fork the repository to your own workspace and choose your own workspace in CodeStar.

Do let me know if you have further questions that I can help with.

Does this mean that if a company has 10 developers, all need to become company workspace administrators, even though they have administration to their department repositories?  If that happens then they'll be able to administer all department administrators and it can have security ramifications.

If there's no fix to this then maybe we can check out Github if that works better for them.  Ideally, we should have a token that can be generated and they can use.
