In Bitbucket Server, I know there's a way to move repos from one project to another existing project. But is there a way to copy the repo to another existing project? It would preserve the old repo while making newer changes to the copy.
The easiest way:
That's it - or did I misunderstood your question?
I'm aware of this method and it's what I was going to do but I consider it the "brute force" method . I'm going to do it this way if I can't find a simpler way to do it through the GUI.
Problem is, we have about 30 repos in one project. We're recompiling them to a newer framework and keeping track of them in a new project. If there's an easy way to do it through the interface itself, I'd rather do that.
"Why don't you just recompile them and push them back to the original repositories, maybe tag the commits or create a branch?" I wish I made the rules...but our team wants access to both sets of code.
Hi @Kevin Thomas,
As of Bitbucket Server 4.9, we provide a repository import feature. You could use this to copy one repository into another project.
Hope this is what you're looking for,
Thanks, I've tried doing this already. It works, but it takes some time to import.
I choose 'Git' as my 'Import from' option and give it the link to the repo I want to clone. I would think there should be a way to 'import from another project' but I realize that's what forking is for.
Thanks for the tip, though!
You can do this using ScriptRunner for Bitbucket Server. Once installed you can go to Admin -> ScriptRunner -> Built-in scripts -> Clone a repository.
This will clone an existing repository to any project you choose. You can see the documentation here.
Let us know how you get on with that or if you need further help.
