Nested groups / inheritance?

I don't see a way of adding a sub-group within a group in Bitbucket. I do see a lot of conversation around "stash" (apparently something different from `git stash`?) and LDAP/external user management, but not quite addressing what I'm looking for. 

I have several sub-teams within my teams that should all have a shared set of repos they can read from but different repos they should be able to write to. Is there a way I can set up my Bitbucket groups to mimic my organisational setup? Or do I need to set up one group per specific access set? 

I was able to set up nested groups in GitHub, so just trying to figure out if I can do the same here.

We currently heavily leverage nested groups in our on-prem environment and it's a major downside of the Cloud model. There are some other mentions on this topic about Atlassian Access (including from Atlassians) on with some extra background and


Great info; thanks @Craig Castle-Mead ! And yes, that is rather a pain for setting up my org structure. :( 

Hey @Craig Castle-Mead - you write "We currently heavily leverage nested groups in our on-prem environment" ... we're currently trying to get "Nested Groups" running with our Bitbucket Server 7.21.4 and the Option "Enable Nested Groups" seems to do basically nothing for us. (bitbucket doc ref:

Especially, I would have expected the groups to be synced in a "flattened" way as is described for Jira (see:

Can you comment on your Bitbucket on-prem version and settings?
