In BitBucket, navigate to your code base and grab the URL of your repo. You can construct this by taking the project URL (re., https://bitbucket.org/team/project) and appending the repo. You can get the repo by taking a look at the generated command in
the clone option:
In VSTS on the repository tab, click Manage to add a new connection to BitBucket:
Add a new external Git repository connection. This is where the URL determined above goes!
Hopefully, this saves someone some time!
