Hi @Oleh Mazur and welcome to the community!

If I understand correctly, you are referring to the URL of one of your repositories?

This URL uses the workspace id of the workspace where the repo belongs.

If you change the username of your Bitbucket Cloud account from this page, the URL of the repositories will not get affected.

You will need to change the workspace id of the workspace where this repo belongs:

1. Log in to
2. Go to your avatar > All workspaces
3. Select the workspace whose id you want to change
4. Select Settings from the sidebar on the left
5. In there, you will see the Workspace ID of that workspace, and also a link to change it

Please note that changing the workspace id will change the URL of all repos that belong to this workspace.

If you have a local clone of this repo already in your machine, you will need to change the remote URL in your clone to use the new workspace id.

Running the following command will show the remote URL of the repo.

git remote -v

If you use HTTPS the output will look similar to the following:

origin (fetch)
origin (push)

If you use SSH the output will look like this:

origin (fetch)
origin (push)

You can change that URL with the git remote set-url command.


git remote set-url origin

For SSH:

git remote set-url origin

If you have any questions or face any issues, please feel free to let me know.

Kind regards,
