On many screenshots of bitbucket repositories online and in the Atlassian documentation I see a tab on the left menu "Overview" that takes the user to an Overview Page. This does not show up in any of my repositories and I'm wondering why?
I can confirm the problem. My friend wanted to exit repo used in our class, and he didn't have overview. I confirmed that I didn't have it either.
However, in other repo I always could see it. After I went there, and then back to the problematic repo, I could see Overview (but he still couldn't).
For him (and me before it fixing itself as described above) /repoowner/repo redirects to /repoowner/repo/src
I just confirmed repo owner also doesn't see the Overview, lol. And another normal user. And probably everyone else, but they are working on the project, so I haven't asked.
Hi @Ewa Zielińska! We recently added a change regarding the Overview menu in the UI, and maybe that's what you're experiencing as it's only been released for a limited number of users. However, anyone can opt-in or opt-out in the Bitbucket Labs section, you can reach it at https://bitbucket.org/account/user/<user>/features/ It's called 'New source browser experience' :
Let us know if you have any further questions!
I had the new source browser experience feature turned on and Overview option described in all your user guides was no where to be found. I turned off the new browser experience in the lab and the Overview option (and all the essential information it contains including the Push URL!) re-appeared.
Is the Push URL hidden somewhere in the new source browser UI that I could not find?
Hi @Ana Retamal Ortiz, I just read all of the advises and answers you provided in this post because I have the same problem: I cannot find an overview page. First, I tried to access through different browsers, on incognito mode, etc. It was all unsuccessful. Then, when I tried to turn off the "New source browser experience" clicking on the link you posted I got this error:
What should I do now?
Thanks in advance.
HI Ricardo, I'm glad you figured it out. For anyone else with the same issue, you need to replace <user> in the URL I provided with your own username:
Hope that helps!
I wasn't seeing the Overview tab and read a few posts where Bitbucket support was pointing folks to https://bitbucket.org/account/user/(username)/features/ to adjust the setting for "New source browser experience"......this setting should be turned OFF, not ON. I don't think that was clear in the message. Turn it OFF and you will see the Overview tab.
I am currently teaching a class, and part of that class is learning about version control. I've asked students to create Bitbucket accounts for their work, and I have a few students who have reported the same issue as Kelzim -- No overview button/page.
I checked out one of the student's accounts with him, and I could find no options that may have been set inadvertently, but perhaps I'm just missing something. I even tried setting up a new test repo on this student's Bitbucket account, and sure enough, when the repo was created, there was no Overview button.
I'm attaching 3 screenshots... I apologize, I have to black-out the username, as this is a student account, but two of these shots both show a missing Overview button from the student's account. The third screenshot shows a picture of his repository that he shared with me (my username is jbachelorcsusm), and when logged into my account, I see the overview button, just like I do for all of my own repositories.
Do you have any idea what might be going on, and what I might tell students to do in order to rectify the issue? It's much more straightforward for them to share their repos with that nice, "Send Invitation" button one gets on the overview page of a repo, as opposed to drilling into repo settings, then into "User and group access".
Thanks so much for your help!
Hi @Jon Bachelor! What browser are they using? Can they reproduce this across different browsers and computers? Have they tried to access their accounts using the incognito mode?
I've searched for the name of the repo within the list of repos you have access to, but there are a few with the same name (I'm guessing each of them from a different student). Since you'd like to keep them anonymous, would it be possible that you give me a hint just so I can find the affected users? You could just show me the first and last letter, something like 'u******e'. If you're still not comfortable with that, let me know and I'll create a Support ticket for you.
Thanks so much for your super fast reply, Ana!
Let me start by asking students to try a different browser, and if that shows similar results, I'll ask them to try incognito mode as well.
If unsuccessful, I'll ask them if they are ok with me providing a username hint for you to be able to check out their account. =)
Thanks for your help!
