LFS enabled git clone is too slow for a large repo in the pipeline


I've a large repo on Bitbucket Cloud, I'm trying to run a Bitbucket Pipeline. Because my repo is too big, and I configured clone: lfs: enabled  to enable LFS , git clone in the build step consumes too much time. How can I speed up my git clone process?

Thank you.

Hi @oguzhan ,

Since you enabled download of LFS files in your bitbucket-pipelines.yml file, I assume that you need those files for your build?

One suggestion I can make would be to adjust the depth of clone to 1 in your bitbucket-pipelines.yml file:

depth: 1

The default depth of the clone is 50 (you can see that depth also in the screenshot you posted). If you set it to 1, only the latest commit will be cloned and this may help speed up the process.

You can check our docs for this option here:

Could you try this and let me know if it helps with reducing the cloning time?

Kind regards,
