Importing from a self-hosted bitbucket server still in progress


I'm trying to migrate a repository from a self-hosted bitbucket server to a cloud based repository but the importation never finish (20h for the moment).

The progress window shows:

14:39:38 git import for: http://xxx
14:39:38 Cloning http://xxx...
14:39:38 Cloning into bare repository 'xxx'...
14:39:42 remote: Counting objects: 182010, done.
14:39:49 remote: Compressing objects: 66% ..... then 100% after some minutes

But nothing more.

The repo size is a little less than 1 GB.

I've done the same in Azure Dev Ops that I'm testing in parallel and the importation has succeeded after some minutes.

Is there something I can do to unfreeze the state of my repository import in ?

Thank you for your help.

Hi @sebastienca, welcome to the Community!

It definitely shouldn't take that long for a repo that size. I have checked your Bitbucket Cloud account and found a repo that hasn't finished importing, so I'm assuming that's the failed one. 

Have you tried the import again? And can you confirm that you're following the steps at Import a repository? Do you see any other errors in the log in Bitbucket Server?

If you're still having issues, please let us know so we can investigate this further with you.  

Best regards,
