New Permissions in Bitbucket

Bitbucket Cloud is taking permission management to the next level with the upcoming addition of project permissions and permission inheritance.

Admins will soon be able to configure group and user permissions for an entire project. The new project permissions model includes 4 hierarchical levels: Admin, Create, Write, and Read.

The introduction of permission inheritance will allow project permissions to apply to all repositories within the project, giving workspace admins more control. The changes will have no impact on existing repository permissions and will not disrupt end-users. Yet, it will result in some changes in the approach of workspace admins.

If you're a Bitbucket admin go and read the community post for more details.
