Export / Import Bitbucket project, including Pull Requests Edited

Hi,

 

We're evaluating Bitbucket for use within our company. We are a consultancy, and will be hosting projects for multiple clients on the same Bitbucket server. At the end of the project, we will need to export the entire project (including all Pull Requests, with all comments) and give it to the client.

 

Is this possible? GitLab has an 'export project' feature, does Bitbucket have something similar (I haven't been able to find mention of it)? Alternatively could we write something using the API: is it possible to create a Pull Request containing all of the comments, discussion, tasks, dates, etc, that were in a prior exported Pull Request?

 

Thanks in advance,

Antony

Hi Antony,

At the moment, this feature is not available in Bitbucket Server and we have an open feature request here:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BSERV-4586

 

For sure you could use the REST APIs to retrieve and create the data (e.g. this is the Pull request end point and this is the comment one).

 

You can always import the Git repository itself (including the entire history) by following the instructions on the Importing code from an existing project page.

 

Let us know how it goes.

Hi Caterina,

Thanks for your response.

So it is possible to create a Pull Request using the Rest API which looks identical to a historic Pull Request on another system, including all timestamps, comments, users associated with the comments, etc?

Thanks,

Antony
