Bitbucket code search api is not working

I am trying to use the bitbucket code search API and I am getting 401 error "Token is invalid or not supported for this endpoint."

I created a repository access token and can access this particular URL '' with an authorization bearer token in the header without any issue.

But I couldn't access the code search API with the same token. I am having an invalid token issue. My code search api - 

I am following the above two articles. In these articles it is mentioned like 'GET /2.0/teams/{username}/search/code'

what username I should give? I already tried with 'nasrulrules'

In the first article I am seeing the api you provided and what is "%7B6f461d1e-a3dd-433b-a0e3-7a69daf6ea47%7D" ?


kindly provide more suggestions on this.

Hello @nasrulrules ,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

The 401 Authorization error usually means that your credentials are either invalid or do not have sufficient permissions to execute that action. If you created the token using an Oauth consumer, could you try to check all the scopes when creating the consumer to make sure you have the necessary permissions when doing the API call?

As for the endpoint, Bitbucket Cloud API provides two different endpoints for code search, with the difference them being the type of the workspace: personal or shared (team) workspaces.

If you want to Code Search in a personal workspace : 

  • Search code in a user's repository 

    Example API call :
    curl --request GET \

      --url '<personal workspace id>/search/code?search_query=foo+repo:demo' \

      --header 'Authorization: Bearer <Bearer token>' \

      --header 'Accept: application/json'

If you want to Code Search on a shared workspace : 

  • Search code in a team's repository 

    Example API call : 
    curl --request GET \

      --url '<shared workspace id>/search/code?search_query=foo+repo:demo' \

      --header 'Authorization: Bearer <Bearer token>' \

      --header 'Accept: application/json'

You're also welcome to check Difference between shared and personal workspaces for more details on each type of workspace.

Hope that helps! Let me know in case you're still running into issues with that endpoint.

Thank you, @nasrulrules.
