How I can GET a group on a repository by API ?

I follow this document: and GET a group on a repository (I have full access to bitbucket API), but I have a problem when I insert group_owner to this API URL :{workspace_id}/{repo_slug}/{group_owner}/{group_slug}

After I GET (I use PostMan for call API), the response always I received result: 400 Bad request and Group is not owned by the workspace.

Please help me where I find group_owner and what I need to insert.

Warm Regards.

Hi @phongtd and welcome to the community.

The {group_owner} should be the Bitbucket UUID of the account/workspace that owns this group.

You can find the info the following way:

If you make a call to{workspace_id}/{repo_slug}

you will get info for all groups with access to this repo. For each group in the output of the above call, you will see the following fields:

"group": {
"owner": {
"display_name": "some-name",
"uuid": "{7914a899-371g-0968-t2w3-6317b0936b6e}",

The uuid above is what you need to use for {group_owner} in the call you want to make. You may also need to encode the curly brackets around the UUID, in this case { should be replaced with %7B and } should be replaced with %7D

An example URL using the UUID I gave above would be

I would also suggest testing the call with curl as well.

Please feel free to let me know if this works and if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Hi @Theodora Boudale

I have rechecked, it works well with your answer, and when I input lower-key in {group_slug}.

Thanks for helping me, I was able to use it. :D

Warm Regards.
