## Import repository from Bitbucket Server

Import your projects from Bitbucket Server to GitLab via the API.

NOTE: **Note:**
The Bitbucket Project Key is only used for finding the repository in Bitbucket.
You must specify a `target_namespace` if you want to import the repository to a GitLab group.
If you do not specify `target_namespace`, the project will import to your personal user namespace.
