I want to give read access to a repository to a third party(person) but if I go to users and try to send invitation, there is only read, write and admin and the read role specifically states "clone or fork repository", which is way beyond what I want to grant access for.


Does bitbucket lack this functionality or am I overlooking something?

If you give read access to the third party person, then he could theoretically see all files and their change history. In that sense, it is equivalent with cloning the repo, although of course "cloning files one by one" isn't very convenient.

Which means that if you give "read" access to the repo, then not permitting cloning wouldn't make any safer.
