I'm trying to clean up my BitBucket.org account and I am the remaining member of a team that never had any activity.

team overview

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to delete this team or leave the team. It appears that the only path to resolve this is as follow:

  1. Hover over "Manage members" and click on "Leave team".

    manage members

  2. Click on "Revoke my membership".

    revoke membership

But that gives me an error:


How can I delete this team or remove myself from it?

  • Oh. I just noticed that Bitbucket has their own answers site powered by OSQA. I will cross post this there and share the answer if this gets resolved!

If you are the last, remaining user in a team and you want to leave the team, you will need to delete the team:

  1. At the top-right of the BitBucket website, click on your avatar and then click on "Manage account".

    manage account

  2. Click on the "Account" dropdown menu and click on the team.

    select account

  3. Click on "Delete account" menu item on the left.

    delete account

  4. Click on the "Delete account" button.


  5. Click "Ok" to confirm.

    They have now renamed the 'Delete Account' to 'Delete Team' which is much less disconcerting!

The accepted answer is old. Right now the next steps required:

  1. Enter to your Team (you should see team's repositories).
  2. Select 'Settings'.
  3. You need to select under 'General' label a link 'Team settings'.
  4. Click 'Delete account'
