Hi Daniele,

The $BITBUCKET_CLONE_DIR variable is for referencing the path so we have the flexibility to change clone dir if needed. It's for internal use only. It's referenced in the article because you can *use* that variable, but it wouldn't make sense to change the value.

If there's a reason why you consider necessary to change the default clone directory, you can submit a Feature request at so we can consider it for future implementation.

Hope this helps!

Just to emphasize this in case it wasn't clear enough in my previous comment, the variable is for customers to use but it's read only, it can only be modified by Atlassian.
