How can I view the message of annotated git tags on bitbucket Edited


I'm a huge fan of having my devs record everything they've worked on on each release. Naturally, each release would correspond to a git tag. In Github they would simply state the issues/tickets they've worked on on each git tag, and Github would have a section called tags/releases that would display all such release notes..



with Bitbucket, I've tried two different ways to create annotated git tags


1. using command line

git tag -a "v0.0.1" -m "%release notes%"


2. using bitbucket GUI:

both cases created annotated git commits (as I can tell using cli again):


$ git tag

$ git show v1.0.1
tag v1.0.1
Tagger: Abdullah Bakhach <>
Date: Mon Oct 2 11:03:47 2017 +0300

release 1.0.1

done issues AD-424, AD-422
please download apk at


but then I have _no way_ of accessing this stuff on bitbucket's UI:
