Can we get all remote branches in a Repo which are not updated for more than 180 days?

I would like to leverage Bitbucket api to get all remote branches(including merged and unmerged) in a repo which have not been updated for more than 180 days

Hey Sudheer! It definitely looks like what you're wanting to do is possible with just 2 API endpoints. You'd need to first iterate through the values (repos) provided from the /2.0/repositories/{workspace} endpoint to get a list of your repos and their respective repo-slugs. Once you've got that, you can pass the slug into the /2.0/repositories/{workspace}/{repo-slug}/refs/branches endpoint to get details on the last updated timestamp. Then you simply need to compare the timestamps with whatever date/time you wish.

At a super high level this would look like the following in python:

def repos():
    yield repo.get('name), repo.get('slug')
def branches(repo):
    yield branch.get('name'), branch.get('target').get('date')
def main():
    for repo_name, repo_slug in repos():
        for branch_name, branch_date in branches(repo_slug):
            if branch_date < desired_date: #less than == older than
                print(f'{branch_name} on {repo_name} is older than desired.')
