Please add a Note to suggest not adding big binary files into Bitbucket repo.

Hi Experts,

I'm using both Bitbucket and Azure Devops. And I found that if I have big binary files in my repo(over 160MB), then I can't create Azure Devops Yaml pipeline from my repo any more, ikt always states:

"Unable to get the path contents from the Bitbucket repository 'mainincubator/lissi-edge' for the branch or source version 'master' and path ''. It is possible the specified path is a file. Error from Bitbucket: Request timed out after 5000ms"

So it occurs the Bitbucket blocks my request if my repo has big binary files. (I have specific reason to contain the binary files in repo)

Is it convenient for team to fix this issue? Or add a "Notes" in Bitbucket document to prevent other members from meeting same issue?

Please advise.

Hi Team,

We are also blocked with this issue. Are there any alternate solution would help us while you working on it.

We are unable to create pipelines from azure devops for this repo.

I am also blocked by this... I have three binaries that I need in this repo, and I now can't connect it to azure pipelines. More annoying that it was working fine previously. 

Blocked as well for the same issues. Binaries are not very large but needs to be this way for the moment.
