My Bitbucket repository doesn't show the "Overview" page option?

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?

Hi Kelzim! I've checked your account and I was able to see the "Overview" option. If you still can not see it, please send us a screenshot to make sure we're referring to the same thing. 



Hello Ana,

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!




I am also still seeing this issue. Although, unlike Jon - NONE of our users are able to see the overview tab. The only reason I knew it existed is because I always see it on the documentation. Thanks!

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!

@Kelly ZImmermann, the screenshot you posted is from BB Server 4.9.1 where there's no overview. Hope that explains!

Let us know if you have any questions!
