Backup Automated Bitbucket projects/sources

Good Morning Everyone,

I am looking for a way to backup my local projects / sources that are on Bitbucket.
In this case, I would need something automated, that I could adapt to a routine, like a clone script for example, that would daily download my complete code to the local PC.

I saw and used SCM Backup, however, it does not bring me the sources for each backup, in this case, not considering what we need.

Does anyone know of a solution to make this procedure possible?

Best regards,
Vinicius Dezan.

To backup a Git repository you should use the git clone --mirror, this will clone the entire repository, notes, heads, refs, etc. What you will not get are any data that Bitbucket is storing, like permissions, pull requests etc.

Hi @Mikael Sandberg, thanks for the answer, can you tell me if I can automate this? without it being necessary to perform it manually whenever I want to make the backup?

Mikael Sandberg Community Leader Sep 10, 2020

Yes, it can be automated but only from the client side. All you need is a scheduler that runs the git clone command whenever you want to create the backup.

Perfect, you will perform the internal tests with the task scheduler by calling the script.
Thank you very much.
