Access to Bitbucket team's repositories

I have created an account in Bitbucket dedicated to AppVeyor. I've setup the Bitbucket connection in my AppVeyor account details to authorize read / write access to BitBucket repositories. This specific Bitbucket account doesn't own any repositories but has access to my team's repositories (which I would like to access and build from AppVeyor). When I create a new project in AppVeyor, I cannot see any repositories. However, if I create a repository from this Bitbucket account, the repository can be selected in my new AppVeyor's project.
I am therefore wondering what is the proper way to access my team's Bitbucket repositories when creating a new project?

    I guess my question can actually be generalized as: what access need be given to a Bitbucket account to allow accessing repositories from AppVeyor?
    I am not only expecting to have access to my Bitbucket team's repositories but to any repositories I am granted access to.

    We call We need this to ensure that AppVeyor can add SSH key and webhook for the repository.

    We have an issue to track this:

    You can make your dedicated account to be an Admin temporary and restrict its permissions after you added projects you need.

    Let us know if this workaround works for you.

    Thanks for the tip
    It works for me, as far as I can build the projects without needing admin rights.
