Hello @Shruthi R ,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

The Bitbucket API provides the following endpoint to get the contents of a single file, or the contents of a directory at a specified revision (commit) :

GET /2.0/repositories/{workspace}/{repo_slug}/src/{commit}/{path}
  • When path points to a file, this endpoint returns the raw contents.
  • When path points to a directory instead of a file, the response is a paginated list of directory and file objects

That being said, and example request to that endpoint would like like the following :

curl --request GET --user <BitbucketUsername>:<AppPassword> --url{workspace}/{repo_slug}/src/{commit}/{path}


For more information about this and other endpoints available on the Bitbucket API, you can refer to the following documentation:

Hope that helps to address your question. Let us know if you need further assistance :)

Best regards,

Patrik S
