How to get space on the Bitbucket server?

When we finish a project, we' need to take off this project from the Bitbucket because we'd like to free space in the server.
My question is: Is there a way that I can export a project and archive them in another server to, if necessary, restore them?

It's easy to archive a repo:  "git clone --mirror [url]".   I don't know a way to archive a single project, but you could just archive all of its repos one at a time with "git clone --mirror".

Restoring a repo is two steps:  1.) create repo in Bitbucket  2.)  git push --mirror [url]

It sounds like what you want is the Bitbucket Server Archive Plugin by Atlassian Labs.

Unfortunately, it does not archive all branches and tags though. For more information on its capabilities, see

Hope you find it useful,


Thank you.
