I found the answer:


Bitbucket Server 7.15

Branch deletion on merge

New Java and REST API methods have been added to configure Branch deletion on merge for Project and Repository.

DeleteAfterMergeConfigurationService.deleteConfiguration(scope), DeleteAfterMergeConfigurationService.getConfiguration(scope) and DeleteAfterMergeConfigurationService.setConfiguration(DeleteAfterMergeConfigurationRequest) introduce the ability to configure Branch deletion on merge feature.

New REST endpoints:


  • GET /rest/branch-utils/latest/projects/{key}/delete-after-merge

get if the feature is enabled for a Project.

  • POST /rest/branch-utils/latest/projects/{key}/delete-after-merge

enable or disable the feature for a Project.


  • GET /rest/branch-utils/latest/projects/{key}/repos/{slug}/delete-after-merge

get if the configuration is enabled for a Repository.

  • POST /rest/branch-utils/latest/projects/{key}/repos/{slug}/delete-after-merge

enable or disable the configuration for a Repository.

  • DELETE /rest/branch-utils/latest/projects/{key}/repos/{slug}/delete-after-merge

delete the configuration for a Repository.

In order to enable “branch deletion on merge” for Bitbucket projects via REST API, you will need to make a PUT request to the following endpoint:


In the request body, you will need to specify the following JSON:

"deleteOnMerge": true

Where {projectKey} is the key of the Bitbucket project and {repositorySlug} is the slug of the repository.

If the request is successful, the response will return a 204 status code.

Thanks. It did not work. I got a 404 status code.

404 status code means the endpoint could not be found. Check the project key and repository slug to make sure they are correct.
