How to get email ids of all users in Bitbucket


Since, there is no option of announcement banner in Bitbucket, I want to send email to all the users that are using Bitbucket about the downtime for upgrade activity. 

Is there any way to fetch the list of all the users of all the groups added in the global permissions of Bitbucket.?

By REST API or some other mean?

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Sanan

the rest api can be used, you could iterate over your user like


curl -u USER:PASSWORD https://BITBUCKETURL/rest/api/1.0/admin/users?filter=USERNAME

Another option could be to directly query the underlying database (mysql for example)

select user_name, email_address from cwd_user

The following link might also be interesting although i can not remember what informations are returned



Hi Kurt, 

thanks for your response. 

I tried the curl command you suggested. it runs but returns no user names. It returns only following:




is there anything extra that I need to do?


I also tried the solution suggested in the link you pasted. but that does not help either. I installed the plugin mentioned therein but it gives me 404 error and a message as below:

Could not find servlet for: /plugins/servlet/users-with/LICENSED_USER


May be i should try your curl command if you can tel me what wrong I am doing. 



@sanan sanan


Can you provide the exact curl call you are using (without username & password)




Hi Kurt, 


sorry for my late reply. Actually, i just found a weird workaround. I opened the page of all the users and copied the whole table to excel sheet and filtered the rows of only those users who have last authenticated value. This way I got the users of LDAP who use or used Bitbucket. And got their email ids. So I got what I wanted.
