Security issue: Allow an organisation to disable public repositories.

Issue #13050 open
Steele Clifton-Berry created an issue

Repositories often contain sensitive data which reflects internal company processes and other secrets which should not be - or are not legally allowed to be - public. There are use-cases where a company might not want any of their BitBucket repositories to be public, ever.

Please add a feature to allow an organisation to permanently disallow/disable the creation of public repositories. This will prevent accidental public repositories which can easily happen for a variety of human reasons.

That is, add a feature which when activated disables the following: the ability to select 'public' for repository visibility on repository creation, and the same in the repository settings page for existing repositories.

    Hi Steele,

    Thanks for the detailed feedback and use cases! We'll take this suggestion into consideration as we plan our backlog.
