Hi Erik,

is your question about Bitbucket or Bitbucket Server?

Greetings, Christian.


Bitbucket Data Center hosted in AWS.

Hi Erik,

There is no way to do this via the REST API, but the following query on the database should give you this information:

SELECT, pa.DATE from project p, AO_BD73C3_PROJECT_AUDIT pa WHERE = pa.PROJECT_ID AND pa.ACTION='ProjectCreatedEvent'

Thank you for example.

Hmm, I'm getting followin error, despite I see this table in pgAdmin

ERROR: relation "ao_bd73c3_project_audit" does not exist

Will try to investigate myself too.

solved: double quotes needed for pgAdmin. Thanks again.

Surely the .../rest/api/3/project/ endpoint could easily be enhanced to return create date?


Infact, it should support a filter to search project by create date!!!
