Hi @aksimoN you can check the documentation page for the Bitbucket REST API:

The rest endpoint you should check is referenced as:


 You can use either the "base" or "filterText" params depending on the use case you have.

I still don't get it:


GET /rest/api/1.0/projects/Project_name/repos/Repo_name/branches?develop

 I get:

"size": 2,
"limit": 25,
"isLastPage": true,
"values": [
"id": "refs/heads/develop",
"displayId": "develop",
"type": "BRANCH",
"latestCommit": "8454018d5221826cc4d034197b84b6e83802e4d5",
"latestChangeset": "8454018d5221826cc4d034197b84b6e83802e4d5",
"isDefault": true
"id": "refs/heads/master",
"displayId": "master",
"type": "BRANCH",
"latestCommit": "d481152fd1c55fb7a049a25044ff5c532bdf231e",
"latestChangeset": "d481152fd1c55fb7a049a25044ff5c532bdf231e",
"isDefault": false
"start": 0

 still return 2 branches

you need to construct the URL to provide pairs of param names and values, e.g.:




First one still gets me both branches but


Second one working fine. I think I get it now
