Bit Bucket Side-by-side diff view not working properly

Ankush Das July 21, 2023

Bit Bucket Diff View is not showing changes between 2 branches in side by side view.

From global diff view settings , side by side diff view is enabled.

Attaching screenshot for reference.

Hi @Ankush Das,

The first screenshot you posted shows the diff of a file between commits of the same branch, which indeed does not show a side-by-side diff.

I created a request for applying the global diff view settings on that page of the repo as well:

When you compare two branches, you will see a side-by-side diff. Based on the second screenshot you posted, it looks like the reason that you cannot see the diff is because it is too large to display. We have the following limits for viewing diffs in Bitbucket Cloud:

If your diff exceeds these limits, you can view it locally.

Kind regards,
