migrate to single bitbucket

Following an acquisition, we are trying to consolidate Atlassian 'stuff.'  One of the consolidation points is BitBucket.  We have multiple small Bitbucket accounts that we want to consolidate into one. I envision buying more licenses for one of these smaller accounts and then migrating the other repositories into the one.   Is this possible?  What are the steps required?

Also, we will be migrating any JIRA or Confluence data that might be available through Bitbucket into an onsite version of these products.  My first plan is to use backup and import for this.  If you have experience in this type of migration, I would love to hear of any 'got ya's' that you encountered.  

 

Thanks

This is of course possible. Make sure that the final Bitbucket has enough licences for users to login. You then migrate the repositories to the final instance:

git clone –bare git@github.com:old/repo.git
cd repo
git remote add origin git@github.com:manakor/manascope.git
git push –mirror

Also, we will be migrating any JIRA or Confluence data that might be available through Bitbucket into an onsite version of these products

For Confluence, it is as simple as taking a Confluence Space backup and restoring it one at at time to an existing instance. 

For JIRA, especially if you are using Agile, you may or may not run into issues when performing a JIRA Project Import from a backup.

With Bitbucket you can just transfer the repository:

However I would caution against it. There are limitations when it comes to the teams. They're meant for a single team so you might see a lot of spam in regards to notifications and other hassles may emerge. I've helped to build up a large team account and regretted it afterwards. While the $ savings was a clear win, the usability of the team account went down.

thank you for that info, Daniel. That's good to know so we can at least set expectations.
