Is there a way to sort Bitbucket search results by commit time?


My team uses Bitbucket to version our ad hoc data pull SQL logic. This logic can change over time and it would be helpful to be able to search for terms/phrases by descending commit time.

Hello @Mike G,

Welcome to the Community!

I guess you're talking about Code Search? That is, does the URL of the page where you see search results look like this?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to configure the order of the results, and Search wasn't designed for the use case you described. Also note that only the tip of the main branch of the repository is indexed, so search results won't include any other branches or historical versions of the files.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Let me know if you have any questions.


Please consider adding a date sort to repo search results. Thank you!

Hi @Mike G 

If you are our commits API to pull commits, you can apply sorting on commit time. Please see
