API Filter Doesn't Work

The API to access pipeline resources does not accept query parameters. 

For example, the following command returns all pipelines, not filtering at all. Note that the slash at the end of the URL (after "pipelines") is required for some reason; the API doesn't work without it. Note also that the ?sort= query parameter works.

curl -u {user}:{password} -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json"{workspace}/{repo}/pipelines/?q=build_number%3D10

In contrast, the following call to the repositories/ path works, returning a single repo: 

curl -u {user}:{password} -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json"{workspace}?q=name%3D%22example-repo%22

Can you please investigate this issue?

Hi Adam,

Thank you for contacting Atlassian Community Support. I'm Norbert from Bitbucket Cloud Support, it's nice to meet you!

I'd like to inform you that indeed the following query doesn't work

curl -u {user}:{password} -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json"{workspace}/{repo}/pipelines/?q=build_number%3D10

But as a workaround, when I've tried the following query, it showed me the details from my build:

curl -u user:password -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json"

Can I ask you to try to query the build using "pipelines/buildnumber" way and let me know if this workaround work for you?

I'm looking forward to hear from you.

Have a great week ahead!

Best Regards,
Atlassian Bitbucket Cloud Support Engineer

@Norbert C Thanks a lot for the reply. I'm trying this approach, but still can't figure out the right syntax. I've tried the following, which fail: 

  • pipelines/buildnumber/10 (404)
  • pipelines/buildnumber/10/ (extra slash at the end) (404)
  • pipelines/buildnumber?q=10 (400)
  • pipelines/buildnumber/?q=10 (404)
  • pipelines/buildnumber (400)
  • pipelines/buildnumber/ (404)
  • pipelines/buildnumber%3D10 (400)
  • pipelines/buildnumber%3D10/ (404)
  • pipelines?q=buildnumber%3D10 (404)
  • pipelines/?q=buildnumber%3D10 (returns all builds)
  • pipelines?buildnumber=10 (404)
  • pipelines/?buildnumber=10 (returns all builds)

Hi Adam,

Thank you for your reply.

Can I ask you to create a screenshot with the API call what you do, masking the private/confidential information, please? When I did the following API call, I've got an output from build #2. Once I have a screenshot, I might be able to see what went wrong with the API call.


I'm looking forward to hear from you, Adam.

Have a great day!

Ok, by using just the integer build number, this works as intended now. 

Thanks a lot for your help.
