500 Error In: /2.0/repositories/{account}/{project}/pipelines_config/variables/{UUID}



I'm using curl to just poke around the 2.0 API, specifically trying to get a single variable. I'm trying:

curl --user [username]:[password] 'https://api.bitbucket.org/2.0/repositories/[my_account]/test-project/pipelines_config/variables/{[uuid]}'


But I receive an HTML page (booooo, this was a JSON API) 

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8"/>
<title>Error 500 Internal Server Error</title>
<body><h2>HTTP ERROR 500</h2>
<p>Problem accessing /rest/1.0/accounts/%7B[redacted]%7D/repositories/%7B[redacted]%7D/variables/[supplied uuid]. Reason:
<pre> Internal Server Error</pre></p>

Where the variables are replaced with my values, including the square brackets. I've confirmed the UUID is a valid UUID for my project and contains curly braces.


I am able to run:

curl --user [username]:[password] 'https://api.bitbucket.org/2.0/repositories/[my_account]/test-project/pipelines_config/variables/'


And see all the variables, but querying a specific one doesn't work.

Hi Seth, 

Thank you for reaching out to us. 

Can you please try and make a GET request using the following format: 


no brackets around UUID please or quotations. 

I have tested this request on my account and it works like a charm. 

I'll also respond to your Support ticket now.
