Hi, Mario.

This feature is coming. 

This is a holdover from the original architecture of Bitbucket. Originally Bitbucket was focused on users collaborating on code projects together and it has grown into teams and organizations collaborating on a large set of shared repositories. All repositories were originally owned by individual users.
Teams were introduced in 2012 so that Teams could share repositories but we still allowed individual users to own repositories, too.
Earlier this year, we introduced Workspaces as a single model of repository ownership. All repositories now belong to Workspaces. To implement this migration from user and team ownership to workspaces we needed to maintain backward compatibility for a time. Therefore, every existing user owns their own workspace. This workspace contains every repository that the user individually owned previously.
We also create a new workspace for every new user due to backwards compatibility of our APIs. The /teams and /users api endpoints still exist but are now deprecated by the /workspaces endpoint. These legacy endpoints assume that every user has a workspace. When we turn off these endpoints at the end of this year then users will no longer require a workspace and can delete their old workspaces.

I just created a workspace in error and now I cannot delete it. Additionally I cannot create a project under my original workspace, the only option in the workspace drop list is the workspace I want to delete.

Hi is this feature still not available ? I cannot seem to delete a workspace that has the same name on the Workspace menu. I only want one of them.

Hi All, 

in 2022 I'm still having this issue.

I need to delete a personal workspace that was created before my company created the company workspace.

In the workspace settings, I can not see the delete link.

Could you please resolve the issue or let me know if there is a workaround?



You still cant :/ But just rename the personal one - so you can use the name in your company

Hi, thanks for the comment. Is not a matter of naming but in sourcetree I cannot see any remote repo!
