How to find the latest commit made on a branch?

I'm trying to extract the last commit made to a certain branch.


I have something like this here:{abcd}/repos/{abcde-fghi}/branches/info/{CommitID} but what I do not get in this request is the time the last commit was made to this branch.

Is there a way to achieve that?

I get from calling this using curl :

curl -u <bitbucket_username>:<app_password><workspace>/<repository>/commits/master | python3 -c "import json,sys;obj=json.load(sys.stdin);print(obj['values'][0]['hash']);


It will directly give you the commit_no.

If you need to get latest commit on a branch through the REST api, try the "/commits" call with the "until" parameter set to the branch you are interested in, and limit=1 to get the single tip commit from the branch.



The "authorTimestamp" in the result will tell you when the commit was first created.

If you're on Bitbucket 5.0 or newer, then a "committerTimestamp" should be present as well.   If an original commit was rebased or cherry-picked or squashed, the "committerTimestamp" will tell you when those operations happened.

The actual "push" time for when the commit arrived at the server is much harder to determine.

Hi Vivek,

You can use the following to get the last commit:

git log -1 

To just get the date you can do the following:

git log -1 --format=%cd
