      b. Repo Clone URL: Select the URL and the same protocol which BitBucket is providing you to clone. In case username is missing from the URL, we need to add it manually.I had to use Chrome Developer tools and remove the disabled flag from the input box and then add username manually.
    Ignore above step if the username is in URL
        c. Once it is enabled edit the URL with http://UserName@Server/gitrepo
