Hi Raju,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

The short answer is yes, the history is retained. Each clone of a repository contains the full history (there are exceptions),


I do not see migrate to bitbucket cloud option. should i be using enterprise edition for this.

Are you migrating from one Bitbucket Cloud instance to another? Or from Bitbucket Server to Bitbucket Cloud? Or are you trying to add an exiting local repository to Bitbucket Cloud?

Hi Mikael,

We are trying to add existing local repo to Bitbucket Clound.

Okay, so after you created the repository in Bitbucket you will get instructions on how to get your local repository into Bitbucket. The three steps are:

  1. cd into your local repository
  2. Point your local repository to Bitbucket by setting the remote URL
  3. Push your repository to Bitbucket

You can read more about it here, Repository setup


What are steps to move repo's from Bitbucket Server to Bitbucket Cloud. I tried to look in doc's but could not find any help.

Mikael Sandberg Community Leader Oct 17, 2018

Moving from Bitbucket Server to Cloud is just a normal import of a repository. If you have projects and repositories in Bitbucket Server and are on Linux, take a look at this script, Migrate Atlassian Bitbucket Server to Bitbucket Cloud. Note that any settings like branch permissions, project/repository permissions has to be manually configured.
