Issue #8194 resolved

Cannot import a repository with a "team" owner (BB-10316)

Brett Cave
created an issue

When trying to import a repo, the import fails if the "owner" is set to a team entity.

For example, I have a team called "myorg", and when I import, I select "myorg" as the Owner in the "New Repository" section. I think run the import, and it fails, with the following entry:

13:21:00 fatal: No existing author found with 'myorg'

However, I can import with my own user account as then owner, and then transfer ownership to 'myorg' after the import has finished.

This occurred during a subversion (on-demand instance) to bitbucket git import.

    Hi Brett,

    This does not appear to be a problem affecting all team accounts, but something specific to your account. Can you please email support@bitbucket.org with your team account details, and they should be able to sort you out?

    Thanks, Zach
