How to restore a deleted repository including the database data?


we do nightly backups of our repositorys in Bitbucket Server using the backup-client. With this Backup we can restore the whole bunch of repositorys including the database data.

But: how can we restore a single repository including the database data? If we restore the Backup in a separated instance we could get the repo-files from the filesystem but which parts of the database should be copied back to the productive Database? Which tables are affected? Which rows should be copied?

Is there a kind of SQL-Script that extracts and dumps all databasedata for a single repository?

Hi Ronald! Restoring restore a deleted repository including the database data is not currently possible. 

We have a Feature request for that and you can find it at BSERV-4586. You can vote for it, add a comment or watch the ticket to receive future updates. 

Let us know if you have any questions.



Hello Ana,

thank you - I voted for the Feature request and hope that it will be fixed so that we can do backups and restores on the level of Repositories.


Glad I could help, Ronald :)
