How do I use the bitbucket API to get commits history of a file?

I want to use the API to get the list of commits for a file. This is the same information that you see when are on the website looking at a particular file and you click the down arrow on drop down that shows the past commits.

I have searched all the endpoints published at but I can't find any that return this information.

I noticed that the web page is using an API call to get the dropdown info. It's endpoint is 'filehistory' and it works most of the time but not all the time. I don't really want to use it if it is undocumented.

I tried using 'commits' on the repo but that just produced a 500 error.
