Online edit in Bitbucket Server Edited

Bitbucket Cloud has nice online edit feature when a ro user can edit a file and BB creates a PR for the edit.

Doc - https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/edit-online-351764818.html

I can't see the similar feature in Bitbucket Server. A user with write permissions can edit file but a user with readonly access has no such an ability.

Why? Is it on purpose? Is it possible to have the same behavior in Bitbucket Server as in Cloud?

The latest version of Bitbucket Server has the ability to edit files directly on the server. I am running 5.3.0 in my test environment and it has an Edit button when you look at the source.

It has been available since 4.13, here is the blog post about it.

Edit button is present only for users with write access as I mentined. For for all users. User how can only read access have to do a lot of work: fork repo, find the same file, edit, commit, create PR.

Guess I need to read the question a bit better... Missed the part about giving read only users access to it. Unfortunaltely I don't have the answer, but you may want to see if you can find a request, or file one, to have that fuctionality added to Bitbucket Server. Usually Bitbucket Server will get most of the things that Bitbuket has, but not always.
