how to perform git gc on remote repository

I have reduced the size of my repository on local but do not understand how to perform it on remote repository. Please guide ?

Hi @Hamza Ahmed ,

I'm afraid that the git gc on the remote repo cannot be triggered by end users.

The only time when this is possible, is if:
- your repo is over 2 GB
- and you have enabled the Lab feature "Delete dangling commits when over size limit" for you account
- and you reset your local branch prior to the large commit and then push this, as per our instructions here . Then the git gc should get triggered automatically after this push.

I can run a git gc for your repo if you can let me know its URL.

Alternatively, you can open a ticket with the support team via and request a git gc for your repo. In "What can we help you with" select "Technical issues and bugs" and then Bitbucket Cloud as product.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Thank you @Theodora Boudale for your quick response for now i have space for more commits. i'll share my link in future if i need to run git gc on remote.
