Issue #5333 open

Change repository ownership through the REST API (BB-6671)

Kristof Coomans
created an issue

As far as I can see it is currently not possible to specify and/or change repository ownership through the REST API. Repositories you create through the REST API always end up in your own account.

It can be done through the GUI already (issue #4127), but obviously that is cumbersome and each sys admin wants to have that more automated when you need to set up several repositories each month in a middle-sized/big company.

    +1 Usecase: forking a repository through the rest api, adds ownership to the currently authenticated user. Being able to transfer ownership to teams would be tremendously helpful.
