Bitbucket REST API: How to create a new commit on a specific branch?

I am using scr POST request to upload/overwrite a file on my Bitbucket repo. This request always executes on a master branch. I would like to specify the branch name in my request. Is that something Bitbucket REST API supports?

Hi Apurva, in the Cloud REST API documentation you'll find it's possible to add the name of the branch that the new commit should be created on. You'll find it in the Query parameters section when you scroll down the page. 

 Hope that helps!


Thanks Ana. It works.
