is Account Name the same as User Name in my acount settings?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Publishing a Website on Bitbucket Cloud

It almost certainly is but you could use consistent terminology

Hi Steve,

For an individual account, yes, it's the username. However, if you are publishing a website under a team account, it'll be the team ID - hence the generic term "account name." Sorry for the confusion!


Just spent quite some time trying to get through this Atlassian Community Licenses signup page (, trying to create and figure out all prerequisite accounts/ID's/stuff asked for, including vague and mysterious questions like "URL of official non-profit status" (huh?) and "Bitbucket account name" (as no such thing seems to exist, only username).

Could you please provide some FAQ's and make the signup process much clearer on your website for people new to Atlassian products, and clearly explain the difference between BitBucket/Atlassian terminology:

- User Name
- Account Name
- Team ID
- Workspace ID
- Website (blank space in profile)... is this my company website for kicks?
