How to get all private repos owned by team.


I would like to ask you, how can I get all repos owned by team through bitbucket API ?

I tested a little bit API and I was able to get all repos(public/private) for some user through this API:{user}

 And now my scenario is following:

I have defined team (Team1) and for this team we have aproximatelly 30 private repos.

So I have decided to define some common user - admin who is assigned to this team and get all repos through this team member. He is not owner he is only member of team. So how can I achieved  that I will be able to see all team repos without to make this user owner of these repos. Have you got any API where I can get these repos in combination with Team and User ? Or I need to make this user owner of these repos and get them as in example above ?

Hi Lukas,

A team member with at least 'read' access to the team repos should be able to retrieve all repos from a team using the Bitbucket REST API -- the user does not need to be an admin/owner of the repos in the team.

So, if a user who is a member of the team uses the following API:{TeamName}

the user will get all the team repos which he has at least 'read' permissions on. 


Hi Vivian,

it helps. Thank you. But now I have another problem and that is how to get all branches for the current repository. If I have 'team', 'user' how can I get all branches ? I tried to used this api '/repositories/{username}/{repo_slug}/refs/branches' and as username I used name of my user who has permissions to read repositories and as repo_slug the name of the current repo.
