Reversing a Merge Commit

Dear Support, Advisor: our current code repo and deployment setup uses Bitbucket (on the cloud) and AWS code pipelines. We don't use Bitbucket pipelines.

We very much need confirmation about the ability to reverse an already merged commit. Is it possible? If so, how? what's required?

Our hope is that reversing the commit will also reverse the latest deployment that uses it because the reversal will trigger a deployment similar to when a commit is merged.

Please note that this is assuming no pull request is done, which might be what we should be doing in the isolated cases leading to this question, even if it is a development environment.

Thank you so much!

The answer is not specific to Bitbucket Cloud, but it is actually specific to Git.

There are several approaches to "undo", "revert" Git commits, see this StackOverflow topic:
