Hi @Nabih Bawazir and welcome to the community!

The documentation provided in the StackOverflow post about HTTP Access Tokens is about Bitbucket Server / Data Center and it does not apply to Bitbucket Cloud.

In Bitbucket Cloud, you can use an app password (in combination with your Bitbucket username). You can generate it if you:

  1. Open on your browser
  2. Select the cog icon from the top right corner (next to your profile picture)
  3. Select Personal Bitbucket settings
  4. Select App passwords

This is the documentation for app passwords:

In Bitbucket Cloud, an account's password can be used only for logging in to the website from browser. If you want to clone, pull, or push to a repo via HTTPS, you can use your username with an app password for your account.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
