Repository URL doesn't contain project name. How to change this?


We moved some of our companies repository to BitBucket. These repositories are grouped into projects. 

We recognized that the repository URLs don't contain the project names by default, for example:

git clone<WORKSPACE_ID>/<REPO_NAME>.git

Hence, we are happy with BitBucket we would like to move the remaining repositories of other projects as well. For this reason we would like to have repository URL of the following format:


So far I couldn't find a way to change this behavior. What do I miss here?
Is this possible at all? If yes, may anyone help me with this? 

Thanks, Mario

Hi Mario and welcome to the community!

I'm afraid that it is not possible to include the project name in the URL of Bitbucket Cloud repos at the moment.

May I ask why you need that as part of the URL? Is it so you can tell which project the repo belongs to from the URL?

We have a feature request for what you have asked in our issue tracker:

I would suggest to add your vote in there (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features. You are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.

Implementation of new features is done as per our policy here and any updates are posted in the feature request.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Hi Theodora 😀

Thank you for the warm welcome. 

Yeah, our major indent is to distinguish repositories by project.

The whole software department is working on several projects in parallel and some software developers are working on more than one project. 

Furthermore, several projects contain repositories with identical names.  

Due to the fact that BitBucket offers the concept of projects I thought there might be an opportunity to automatically integrate the project name in the repository URL. 

Which I personally would prefer over manually extending the repository-name with something like a prefix.

Nevertheless, thanks for your answer.


Best, Mario
