Hi, @Asipu Pawankumar! Welcome to the community! 

You can run the following request to create a branch using API:

-s -u username:AppPassword -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json"
-d '{
"name" : "{new_branch_name}",
"target" : {
"hash" : "main"

"main" should be the existing branch or commit hash from where you want to create a new branch.

And in order to delete a branch, you can run the following request:

curl --request DELETE -u username:AppPassword{workspace}/{repository}/refs/branches/{branch_name}

You can access the following links to find these endpoints:

I hope this helps, but do let me know if you have any questions. 

Kind regards,

non cloud , local host bitbucket , how do we create branch ? and merge to master ?
