What is the equivalent of --author in Bitbucket REST API?


I am trying to commit changes on behalf of another person using REST API

Is there an equivalent to git --author <name <email>>in rest endpoints?

The API version used is 1.0

Could someone help?

Hi @Ehab Arman

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Bitbucket does not have endpoints for git commands, all your git commands are run locally on your machine and then synced to the remote repository.

Thanks Mikael

Like Mikael Sandberg likes this

That's not technically true, the Bitbucket REST API does have endpoints for uploading and updating files in a repository, which includes the ability to specify a commit message, so these endpoints are clearly running git commands under the hood in order to perform commits. It seems like it should be technically possible to support an additional param to these endpoints for specifying the git author.
