Bitbicket Server API - Project search slow


I have created some testdata in my local Bitbucket server installation:


  • 30000 projects
  • 3 repositories for each project
  • 1000 of the projects are visible for users of group stash-users

System is well sized:

  • 8 GB for the Java process
  • 4 core i7 CPU
  • PostgresSQL on the same host
  • Bitbucket v5.16.0


If I now use the bitbucket server API to search for Projects it is very slow. 

search = projectService.findAll(new PageRequestImpl(0, 50));

This call alone takes up to 20 seconds if used as a normal bitbucket user who is able to see the 1000 projects. When logged in as admin it only takes less than a second.


Am I missing some hidden cache parameter here which I might need to increase for better performance?

did you check the dbms side? 

Maybe db is slow ?
