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.
