[Solved] Importing from GitLab SaaS Premium to BitBucket



I have followed this document:

Unfortunately my repository on GitLab SaaS Premium is not importing to BitBucket. All of my credentials are correct for the GitLab import and I have not set up an SSH key for GitLab yet. The log tells me this:

10:23:39 git import for:

10:23:39 Cloning

10:23:39 Cloning into bare repository 'Shaun-Bebbington/argaco-co-uk'...

10:23:40 remote: HTTP Basic: Access denied

10:23:40 fatal: Authentication failed for ''

10:23:40 Remote Git clone failed: <class 'bitbucket.apps.asyncx.tasks.ImportException'>: Command failed. Return value: 128

Thanks in advance for any help.
