I setup my team / project and then added members, my developers then forked my private repo but I can't see that my main repo was forked.
I only see my forked repo showing in the "Overview" page.
Why can't I see my developers forks of my private repository?
Also, what is the difference between "Allow only private forks" vs "Allow forks"? If I set the project to the "Allow forks" setting would I then be able to see my developers forks?
Hi Bernardo, do you have forks notifications enabled (see screenshot)? If so, you'll receive an email everytime someone forks one of your repos, it will look like:
Username has forked the repository account_name/repo_name as: account_name/new_repo_name
In response to your second question, "Allow only private forks" means that when someone forks your repository, they'll be forced to make it private, which means that only people with granted access will be able to see it. "Allow forks" means that whoever forks the repository can choose to make it public or private.

When they fork a repo, they can select the option "Inherit repository user/group permissions" or add users manually from the settings page.
Hope this clarifies your questions, Bernardo!
Thank you for your reply!

In Github, I can easily manage/see all my team's forked repos; why can't I see this in BitBucket?
As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
