Changing my organisation's bitbucket.org workspace ID from initial caps (mixed case, e.g. say Organisation) to all lowercase (organisation) returns "This workspace ID is not available"
Atlassian Support suggested a Community post, but it seems to be technical limitation or some validation preventing changing the case of a workspace ID?
Would appreciate any comments. We are starting off on this workspace for our organisation and no projects or repositories as yet. The Bitbucket Cloud UI seems to be case independent, but not sure if it will continue to be and or if Git client access for cloned repos is case sensitive or not for URLs as I'm yet to create repos, clone and or push from local.
Thanks in advance
Hi @Edwin Jacobs,
You can try doing the following: if the workspace id is e.g. Workspace, then
- change the id from Workspace to e.g. workspace-test
- right afterwards, change from workspace-test to workspace
Please note the following though: I checked in our system the workspaces you have access to, and the workspace that has a capital letter in its id is another user's personal workspace.
This workspace was created automatically by Bitbucket Cloud when this user signed up for a Bitbucket account.
- If this user leaves the company in the future, you will not be able to revoke their access to this workspace (because it is their personal workspace)
- Other admins of this workspace will not be able to access the APPS AND FEATURES section in this workspace's Settings
I would therefore suggest that you manually create a separate workspace for your organization, as a workspace that is created manually by a user is not subject to the above limitations.
You can ask this user to change their Bitbucket username and their Workspace id to something different, so you can use the existing workspace id when creating a new workspace.
Many thanks @Theodora Boudale!
Kudos, really appreciate reply, efforts to check your end and advice.
The steps to change case of workspace I'm sure come in very handy with thanks to you.
We'll create a temporary shared workspace, transfer repositories and rename once user name and personal workspace is changed.
Great response and support from you, colleague Aravind Anil and the Atlassian Team.
