Hi Manish,

Is there any reason why you wouldn't just clone the repository using git clone?

If you must use the REST API, one way to do this is to request an archive of the repository using

Hello Christian,

Thank you to answer my query. Actually i have got a client request where we need to execute test script using batch file without CI/CD pipeline as a one click solution.

To achieve it we are planning to download/clone project using Rest API.


I have just checked the archive option as well, as per my understanding it should download the project in zip format at specific location.

I have executed "" from postman which was executed successfully as i am getting response 200. but post execution of command did not see anything inside "C:/temp/bit" can you please help me if something i am doing wrong
