Is there a bitbucket API to edit group membership within a team?

I have a bunch of bitbucket groups that all have different access levels to repositories in my team's workspace. Is there a way to automatically add them to a specific group when the account is created, or sometime after if they switch teams or job positions?

Hi, @ithryeandeus

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Just to give you some context around our API, our old rest API 1.0 use to include endpoints that would allow these sorts of operations, however, the 1.0 API has been deprecated with the intent that the 2.0 API would be a direct replacement. 

With that said, there are a few old 1.0 endpoints that we kept in place as a temporary solution until the 2.0 replacements are made available.

Until the Atlassian platform services are fully available in Bitbucket, we will continue to support these 1.0 REST endpoints: 


You can find all the information about these endpoints here: 

I hope this helps, but do let me know if you have any questions. 

Kind regards,

Hello Caroline, 


Thank you for pointing me in this direction. I'll be sure to give that a thorough look-through. I had thought 1.0 was completely gone and didn't think to look here for it.


Similarly, is there a 1.0 version of the API that I can use for Bitbucket Repo Creation?

I've tried this a few different ways and can't get it working. Starting to wonder if I should try and use the 1.0 version instead.

Hi, @ithryeandeus

It is not possible to use version 1 of API to create a repo, all endpoints have been removed with the exception of the ones I’ve listed.

However, the API 2 works fine for me for repository creation with curl. Here is the request I have run:

curl -X POST -u {username:password} -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"scm": "git", "is_private":"true", "project": { "key": "{inser_the_project_key}" } }'{workspaceID}/{repository_name}

I’m not very familiar with Powershell, but you can perhaps ask it here: 

Please, feel free to share any additional questions regarding this case. 

Kind regards,
