Bitbucket branch creation date

Hi,

I am trying to find a way to get all the older branches from bitbucket for a particular project repository slug. There doesn't seem to be anything in the returned json from the api call to suggest when the branch was created or last updated.

I am using:

http://localhost/bitbucket/rest/api/latest/projects/{projectId}/repos/{repo}/branches?details=true

This does not return any date/time info at all. How would I know how old a branch is?

Regards,

 

Nas

Hey Nasir, 

Unfortunately Bitbucket doesn't store the date that a branch is created. You may be able to find this this using some git commands. Checkout this StackOverflow article that may help.

Hello @The Commodore ,

Can you tell me then how we can check whether the branch is recreated with same name or not. As all the commands are showing the commit info instead of branch creation date. Is there any possibility to check whether the branch is deleted during pull request or not.
