Is it possible to create a B account either without a verification email, or with an existing email?

(Typo: title refers to 'BBC' not 'B')

I'd like our CI to have access running as a distinct user, so that permissions are independent of other users. (Assigning credentials from an APP password created by and linked to another user is not ideal for us). However the requirement for email verification is proving problematic for us as when we create such users (on our side) they don't have a real email account.... Is there anyway such an account could be created on your side?

Hello @patrick feerick ,

Thank you for reaching out to Community!

I'm afraid it's not possible to create a bitbucket account without a valid e-mail account, as the verification e-mail is part of the sign-up process. We do have a feature request to implement the concept of service accounts, that would apply in this case : 

I would suggest you to add your vote there, since this helps both developers and product managers to understand the interest. Also, make sure you add yourself as a watcher in case you want to receive first-hand updates from that ticket. Please note that all features are implemented with this policy in mind.

As an alternative, you have the option to use Access tokens instead. Access tokens are linked to a repository, project, or workspace - not to a user. They are meant to use in tools that integrate with Bitbucket, such as CI/CD, and scripting, as they are not attached to a user.

Hope that helps!

Thank you, @patrick feerick

Whilst I was aware of Access tokens I seem to have missed that they can be Project-scoped. This is a much more attractive proposition than creating per-repo Access Tokens, or a user-linked application password. So, great, I'm taking this route!
