How to identify repository name from repository ID (on disk)?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Identifying a Repository on the Stash Server

This is only repository name to <repository-id> mapping. How to figure out repository when I have an ID. With more than 2000 repositories, clicking on all "Settings" for each repo is ridiculous.

Use the "/repos" REST API GET request to get a dump of all repos quickly.  Be sure to authenticate first as an admin so that all are visible.  Since you have over 2,000 repos, you'll need to use the paging API.  It would be something like this:




The result includes an "id" attribute inside each returned repository JSON object:

values: [
  slug: "aui",
  id: 2,
  name: "aui",
  scmId: "git",
  // etc...
  slug: "my_repo",
  id: 11,
  name: "my_repo",
  scmId: "git",
  // etc...


You can use this data to build up your ID -> Repo-Name reverse-lookup table.


Here's an example using my flaky demo VM (might not respond):
