Is there a way to delete a "Deployment" that resulted from a Pipeline Build?

Nick Daniel February 7, 2023

While configuring a Bitbucket Pipeline for a repo, there were a few dummy Deployments triggered as a result of the starter template I chose. 

I have updated the yaml file to prevent any additional misleading "deployments" (as nothing was actually deployed), but I was hoping there would be a way to remove those entities as to not confuse users in the linked Jira project.

This doesn't appear to be something I can do from the web interface, but is it something a support agent could resolve for me?

Hey @Nick Daniel 


If I understood this correctly, do you wish to delete pipeline deployments? If yes, there's no way to delete the already executed pipeline build.

The pipeline list is a record of all the pipelines you have run so you can keep track of it.

Let me know if it's something you wish to have. I can create a new Feature request on your behalf of you.

Hello @Syahrul, thank you for the response.

I do understand what the builds and deployments are used for; and I have them successfully/happily implemented in many repositories & projects. 

My feature request, if it is not already available, would be:

A BitBucket repository-admin can delete/remove/archive/strike a "deployment" entity, so that they can have a clean deployment history if someone accidentally commits changes to the repo's Pipelines (bitbucket-pipelines.yml) that erroneously indicates something was deployed somewhere.

I imagine this is a somewhat frequent occurrence, but only when teams are setting up and/or modifying their Pipelines config. For my current scenario, I just want to remove the deployment metadata associated with some of these "dummy deployments", which didn't actually deploy anything and were instead just the result of a starter pipelines template.

Hopefully this was clear, but please let me know if I can elaborate any further.

Thanks again!


Edit: To clarify.. I don't wish to modify the build history, as that is a representation of pipeline runs. I want the ability to strike a "deployment" that is associated with a pipeline run, so that I can clean up any erroneous "deployments".
