New Repo - limit default group access?

Hi - I have added two new Groups to my Cloud Bitbucket account.

When I create a new repo, these two new Groups are automatically given access.

Is there a method to default a new repo to NOT grant these two new Groups access?

I want to add Group access to a new repo, rather than having to remember to remove Groups. All Groups are added by default to a new repo.

Hi Chris, welcome to the Community!

You'll need to check the groups' permissions, there's an option to automatically grant the group members access to any newly created repo, looks like that's not what you want. 

If that option is checked, every user you add to that group will inherit those permissions and see the repo, you should remove that permission from the group.

For more info you can read Organize your team into user groups.

Hope that helps!


Thanks Ana.

I have read the "Organize..." link, I don't think that has the option I would like.

When I create a new Repo, I don't want access to default to "all groups have access". Can I control that somehow? If not, can Atlassian consider my request for a new feature?

Thanks and regards
