Transferring repo from bitbucket to github failing

I am trying to import a repository into github from my bitbucket account it seems to be failing and shows following message,

"Your old project requires credentials for read-only access
We will only temporarly store them for importing."


Path used for importing looked something like: https://blahb@bitbucket.org/blal/blahblahblah.git

What credentials should I put in and where should I put the credentials? I am trying the "Import Repository" feature of github given on their website: enter image description here

We will only temporarly store them for importing.

This basically means that we need to give the BitBucket login ID and password. When I entered BitBucket ID and password, importing went through fine and I could then see the imported repo on github.
