Hi nfx,

Yeah I'm afraid our REST documentation is lacking at the moment. We are looking to update them in an upcoming release.

To add a comment via REST:


curl -X POST -d '{"text":"your comment"}' $URL

Or if you're replying

curl -X POST -d '{"text":"your comment","parent":{"id":1061}}' $URL

I hope this helps,


Hello Charles,

I've already figured that out. Somehow. But thank you :)

Btw, Rest Api Browser when used with parameters that are already in URL is totally unusable for playing with API. would you fix that someday?)

Hi nfx,

As I said - we are looking to improve the REST documentation this year. The REST browser will updated alongside Stash as new versions are released.


I tried this but comments not updated in Bitbucket cloud. There is none of the message displayed and no error. 

Used 2.0 api, the GET comments works fine.


Hi Charles,

Can you let me know what is $PR in hyperlink format you have provided

HI All ,


Getting the below error when trying to add the commnet to a PR as

 curl -k -u ******:***** -X POST -d '{"content": { "raw": "your comment" }}'**/********/pullrequests/1/comments


"type": "error", "error": {"fields": {"content": "required key not provided", "{\"content\": { \"raw\": \"your comment\" }}": "extra keys not allowed"}, "message": "Bad request"}


Any idea what am i missing here

I'm receiving the same error as ranjan

aphex3k  my issue is resolved after I added the content-type param to the url , pls try the same

Like # people like this

I had to add `Content-Type: application/json` to headers, not the URL. Maybe either is good enough.

use this for linux:

curl -u user:passwd -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d '{"text":" message "}' '<pr number>/comments'
