Importing the repository into Bitbucket

  1. Click + in the global sidebar

  2. Select Repository under Import.

  3. Enter the URL, and a Username/Password combination for private repositories that require authorization. Note: If your organization has configured a personal access token to retrieve the repository via your Git client or the command line, then you may need to use it in lieu of your username/password within the Bitbucket importer.

  4. Enter a Name for your new repository.

  5. If you want the repository to be public, uncheck This is a private repository.

  6. Press Import repository.

Once the repository’s imported, you can get to work on your local system by cloning your repository.
